Martin getting auctioned off?
You are correct, Barry. I thought it odd that Golden Eagle was on the verge of bringing out another bow and then....Gone. A Golden Eagle Rep gave this hype of the North American Archery Group would give Bear, Jennings, and Golden Eagle (maybe another bow company in there) means of Research/Development to rocket the group far beyond... Well, that didn't happen. All just about went belly up. Least wise Bear, Jennings and Golden became absent in our part of the country. All of course the demise of Golden Eagle followed. However, the GE Rep does have the rocket bow that didn't get on the market and I've many times tried to find the time to shoot it. B.B. says it screams. Something well over 300 fps and set to his short draw length, 27 1/2" and 50 some pounds of draw weight. He calls the cams what we called them way back when, hatchet cams.

My neighbor bought my bow when I turned to Hoyt and he's still shooting it. Not bad for a 1999 model - pre top wheel bearing. Says the only thing he's every done was put strings on it.
