    Here's a little more info since my last post. I tied my D-loop on and measured the draw weight as it came from Martin. It maxed out slightly above 73-lbs. I turned the limb bolts out a couple of full...

    My bow is back and appears to be in good shape! After getting the box in the house and opening it and seeing that it was in one piece and appeared to be in good shape overall, I called Martin Archery...

    Well, according to the FedEx tracking system my bow should arrive at home today. My wife will be there to receive it and will carefully open it to see if it made the trip in one piece ;>). I can't...

    Rest assured, Barry and everyone, I will definitely keep this thread updated as anything new happens. I hope by tonight the tracking number I got from John will be useful and able to provide some...

    Here's the latest. I received a call from John Nelson fairly early this morning. He said my bow arrived at Martin last Friday and after working on it, he was now getting ready to send it back to me...

    Very nice accomplishment. Those birds look like they really put on a show for you before you put the hammer down.
  7. You make some good points, Barry. The way I...

    You make some good points, Barry. The way I started into this was to get the shop where I bought the bow involved, figuring they already had reasonably good connections and rapport with the...

    I can only speak for myself, but having had the bow sent to Martin to get assembled and everything checked out, I presumed ALL aspects, including ATA, brace height, draw weight and draw length would...

    Yeah, I'm starting to have a brighter outlook on how this will turn out. I just completed a letter to John Nelson that will be in the shipping box, briefing him on all details of how this started and...

    So, here's the latest. On recommendation from Pat Finney, of Prairie Archery in Grangeville, Idaho, I called Martin this morning and left a message requesting John Nelson (customer service dept) call...
  11. You and Pat Finney (aka themiddleman) are on the...

    You and Pat Finney (aka themiddleman) are on the same track; me to as well. Pat PM'd me with the same question and is quite certain the string and cables that Martin provided are too long. I concur....
  12. I wish I knew the answer to that question too. I...

    I wish I knew the answer to that question too. I don't recall any rough handling last fall while hunting or any other time but I guess it could have happened. Other than that I simply don't know why...

    Thanks for the compliment, AS. During my lifetime I've discovered that patience is definitely a virtue, especially when working through situations that aren't happening as one believes they should...
  14. Once again, thank you very much, Barry. I will...

    Once again, thank you very much, Barry. I will definitely take your advice and remove all accessories if (hopefully when) the bow gets shipped for repairs. And thanks for suggesting Rich as a...

    OK, here's a new wrinkle I just learned from talking with the SW pro. He called and spoke with John (someone new to Martin and the customer service dept) and briefed him on the whole situation. After...
  16. Thanks for your ever so helpful advise, Barry....

    Thanks for your ever so helpful advise, Barry. I'll be going to SW this afternoon after work to see what they've learned after talking with Martin. I'll also call SW before that to pass on your...

    Thanks for the advice, droppixel, on removing all accessories before sending it in. I'd truly hate to not get any one of these items back. I just created a text file listing all these parts so I can...
  18. Thanks to all for your feedback. I have...

    Thanks to all for your feedback. I have contemplated calling Martin directly, but as others have discovered, it doesn't seem to do much good since they apparently won't send warranty parts to...
  19. Starting to lose patience and respect for Martin customer service

    I never thought I'd come to think this way towards Martin Archery, but the last 3 months have brought me to this. I'll outline what's happened during this time so anyone interested can follow along...

    I'm with you on them being ugly and overpriced in addition to providing no better performance. I shot a Z7 at a dealer's shop a couple of years back when I was somewhat considering a replacement for...

    I don't know if many here are familiar with Bi-Delta vanes or not, but I've found their 2.5" Sharkstooth vanes work VERY well with my arrow setup. You can check them out here...

    I feel your pain regarding Win 8. I work in IT, primarily with Windows Server operating systems, and working with Server 2012, which has the same look and feel as Win 8, has been a challenge to learn...

    I presume you've checked with your surgeon about getting back to drawing/shooting your bow by the date you posted and he's OK with that. If not I HIGHLY recommend you do, especially if you're having...

    If you have some string wax, you might try applying some on the screw threads then run the screws into the holes and snug them down (again, don't over tighten). I found this "cure" some time ago and...

    Wow Sonny! Sounds like the old saying "when it rains, it pours". Sorry to hear about all the plagues on your life and hope everything gets better soon for you and all your family.
