What is this Bow?
Martin Slayer, probably from 2006.
Limbs are 16" SE limbs.
Cams are Nitrous Cams (C base, that means the largest of three sizes) with the shoot through system.
Search for Martin Slayer X to find more pictures. In 2008 the bow has been produced with CAT-Cams instead. In 2009 it has been discontinued and replaced by the Martin Warthog.
Thanks for that, just downloaded the 2006 manual.
What are peoples opinion of this bow? Anything i need to know good or bad, things i should do or change?
This is my first bow.
I'd like to have one :D May be isn't the best bow to start archery with, but is a great shooter if you are an experienced archer. If you have no experience with compound bows, my first advice is to lower the draw leight to about 45 pounds. I wouldn't touch anything for now, just put a good (long enough) stabilizer. If you have any questions we all will be glad to help. :)
I'm busy drooling over that right now. Very nice bow just crank her down and shoot a hundred times a day and you will be fine. Form is the key starting out. I would even consider getting a coach if I were u justs starting out!
FYI...those are 14" SE limbs. SE limbs were never offered in 16". The 16" limbs just say Martin, not SE.
2006 Slayer was my first compound bow, and as you can see in my signature, I like 'em, even if they are a bit heavy. Nothing has changed on either of my Slayers since I first set them up, over three years on the 60 #er, gonna need new rigging on that bow after Deer season is over, can't change now, my Deer season starts Jul 10th. Fuzzy horned Blacktails!
