So for those who haven't noticed I'm going to say that any bow in the present 2013 catalog that has these end caps and rockers is going to be a split limb model.
That would include the Alien, Nemisis, P4, and the Blade X4. I would also like to say to those who think Martin should go one way or the other that I think what they are doing makes good sense. They are easing into the split limb business with enough bows to interest a lot of people yet keep some popular solid limb offerins of the past. With the present rocker system I believe the leave the door open to go slid or split with almost every bow in their line-up if the demand warrants, and possibly offer several in either configuration on request.
As usuall Brother Fisher, you are right on the mark (as far as I can see ;) )
I believe this year's lineup is a great stab at a bigger market share. As I posted earlier, there is a bow for everyone, long, short, solid, split, faster, slower, etc.
And I don't think its too far off the mark to say that the bows could maybe be ordered in either flavor of limb, if it were asked, just like you were gonna order a Pantera last year with the Nitro 2 cams...
If they had also included the option of some frilly pink camo option in a couple of the ligher bows, I think it would have been a perfectly rounded lineup.
Did someone say frilly pink martin bow? With pink accessories?
In the catalog - the second page for each bow model shows the features for that model.
For the Alien and the Blade - the feature's page shows both the X4 Twin limb and the Powertuff limb icon/discription.
All the rest of the models only show one or the other limb style/icon.
So - either these two models are offered with either limbs -
the catalog needs proofed again...
We are not offering any bow with the option of solid or split limb design. Each model is clearly marked with the limb style available. The pages that you are referring to on the Alien and Blade are the outline of features available on the entire lineup of either the Rytera series or Gold series...notice how both models are the first in each lineup. The bow features for each of those two models are listed at the bottom of each page.
I'm sure there are plenty of other mistakes made in the catalog that weren't caught by proof reading but the limb choices aren't one of them.
