Wow, closer picture... this is a piece i wan it so bad....
Wow, closer picture... this is a piece i wan it so bad....
I wonder if the drop in IBO rating is due to the split limbs instead of single limbs... idk, just something that crossed my mind.
wouldn't it be great if the prior year models could be retrofitted with the split limbs...?
Wow, I really like my new Bengal Pro but the new Nemisis looks sweet. Why does it all have to change just one season after I purchase something....man this could easily turn into an addiction.
I like the Alien the most, too bad that I'm not on the market for a new compound. And am curious about the Blade - the quad limbs, the lower IBO speed and "the best value of the year" make me think that it's made a little more to the west of Walla Walla... Poe Lang, Taiwan for example. :rolleyes:
We (Martin Archery) will no longer have a separate Rytera line. We have decided to put all our focus and energy into one line of bows instead of splitting our efforts in half between the Martin & Rytera lines. The high end Martin "Pro Series" bows will now be referred to as the "Rytera Series", while the main line will remain the "Gold Series". We hope this clears up any confusion about seeing the Alien and Nemesis 35 in the new Martin lineup.
days late and a few hundred dollars short ... I take cash or paypal :P
It's about time , i always wondered what was going through there head to have a separate bow line, I can't wait I will be getting a new bow after this season
All I got say is , if Martin cannot realease a fast short bow fOr 2013 I will not be shootIng a Martin . I own an exile which is a great bow but I'm not going to purchase a new bow if it's still a slow bow. I will not go backwards . There's plent of companies with fast bows out and they aren't going backwards
Marketing sells bows. Uncle Ted is great but You need 4 or 5 more shows
to keep the name in front of the people.
They should take a lesson from Bowtech and others when they sell pac. bows
as cheap as a bare bow and a GOOD youth and LADIES bow would not hurt at all .
I have been buying Martins For years , All four of my children started with Martin
but have moved on to other brands , Better deals , better bows , better tech ect,ect,ect.
I would like to see Martin make a strong come back. I just hope they have what it takes .
why the beef with the QD stab system? I thought that was a GREAT idea! eliminated an add-on piece and works very well! oh well, not like i'm springing for a 2013 yet anyway...;) that ol' 2011 is still getting it done!
ok this speed thing is gonna bug me so I gotta put my 2 cents in. 335-345 IBO bow is fast,I don't care who you are. I don't know about some of you but I've drawn a few of the faster IBO bows and man it was like trying to pull a Mac truck. they have a harder draw that your shoulder won't appreciate, and a small brace height which is WAY less forgiving... just a thought.
Speed just makes ya miss faster
Well martin, props to you as it doesnt look like anyone wants better strings from the factory. You guys really made a great leap there. Sad to see the alien z go, but on the good side you are offering a 35 in ata bow with the hybrix/cat/nitros. And after 3 model years ( my az is a 2010) my az isnt obsolete. and even better, there isnt any bow out there at any price id rather shoot!! Ive looked around and no one can offer anything better! Im still giddy when i look at and shoot my bow! Well done martin. As for 2013. If your qc has been straightened out your bows should sell like mad once any residual bad rep is shed. I personally had to refit my roto cups on my ax and az. Shouldnt have had to, but now iknow its done right. Btw. one of the things that influenced my decision to buy martin was they didnt have split limbs. I still dont like split limbs. Just sayin. :)
Anyone seen anything else new yet? Getting ancy to check them out ... have a feeling gonna get a big urge for a 2013 with Nitro cams.
I really dig the cut down look of the nitro cams this year might look at that nemesis 35 but that is the only bow i really am interested in at the moment.
I like the fact Martin is making a split limb bow but don't care for the shape of them. Looks like the limbs on Bears lower line bows. Bear went away from that design and in my opinion it was for the better. Not a Bear fan but I love the Anarchy. I think split limb bows are easier to draw and are quieter than a single limbed bow. I've owned 20 different bows in the last 5 years and the Guardian was hands down the quietest and I believe the limb design and shape had alot to do with it.
Anyone know if those new roller cable guards can be purchased and bolted on my 2012 Silencer or are the risers holes machined differently?
You may not like the shape of the Bear Split limbs, but i'm here to tell you that all the bear bows that i've owned....i have not had one limb issue...and that is with a couple of thousand shots thru them each. They shape them for a reason.
Here is my list of bear split limb bow that i've owned
truth 2 - 3 times now
& now a Bear Strike...which turns out to be my favorite!!!!
Not one problem with any of them.
They have turned out to be right on IBO......smooth, super quiet!!!!!, vibe free, plenty of power!! Very accurate, especially the strike.
This is just my opinion and experience.
I hope Martin remembers to make their bows user friendly for us guys that do our own work. The concept of not needing a bow press to work on your bow is a huge factor to figure in when buying a bow. Pro shops are a joke in my area and the nearest one is a 200+ round trip. If not I'll be shooting or buying 2012 bows instead of the newest and greatest.
I am not a fan of split limb bows and really sad to see Martin going to them.
what is it about split limbs that has some against them.
Clearly they must be better, why else would Martin start incorporating them ?
I've more split limb bows than solid...by just a couple...lol
i've had no problems with them. It is my guess that they are stronger, maybe create more fps, & quieter!
The funny thing is whenever i brought my firecat or bengals in to my local shop just to shoot in his indoor range....he would always come over and grab my bow and fire a couple of shots and throughly inspect my limbs over and say that i'm getting lucky....
Man that always had me feeling confident......................NOT!
He would never inspect my Bear Instinct, Truth, truth 2 or my Strike now.....he would shoot them though.
Some of the Old martin die hards should embrace this change........i'm sure it's for the better. Something needed to change.
I do know anytime you constantly remove and reinstall something from aluminum it wears faster than say steel. I am thinking of putting a stud in mine with a jam nut and getting a stabilizer with a female hole. That way the stress will not be on the riser every time i remove my stabilizer. I envision the QD eventually pulling through with enough times tightening down. Makes me nervous honestly but I cannot get my bow in the case with it on. I got to admit I get nervous every time I remove it.
i am thinking that the blade x4 may be my next bow. i love my threshold, deadly accurate and the price was amazing factory direct via amazon. if the blade x4 is better i caanot wait to see the price and start saving up. Good job Martin Archery. Thank you for the wonderful products!
really ready to gander over the new nemesis, love the old one too though
