    Hey Wild Wilt,
    My Warthogs had a type of old english font used to print the name onto the limbs.....it looked different and pretty good. Maybe that would work for you, too.

    Hey Spiker,
    No...I don't own a bow scale, unfortunately. The Pro Shop that I took it to for the rebuild (install limbs, strings, cams, etc.) kept the bow backed out, but I don't know by how much. ...

    Hey firefighter 42,
    Thanks for the input. I hope that you get the right camo on those new cams. On my bow, the cams stayed the CAT 2 cams that were on it originally, so the question about the...

    Hey Guys,
    I believe that Middleman and Spiker may have a good point.....the original limbs, if I remember correctly (and that's a doubtful thing) did have pins in the pivot that set into the limbs. ...

    Hi Spiker,
    My bow has what Martin calls the Roto Limb Cups.....the limb is held in place by the two sides of the cup. I believe that my older Bengal uses the pins that you described. Thanks......

    Gotta question, fellas.......

    I have a 2010 Warthog that has very little shooting on it, but I've really liked what I've seen from it so far. Fairly smooth considering the Cat2 Cams and really fast now that I've gotten...

    Barry,
    Thanks for the updates. I know that we were all hoping for some good news, but at least we know what is happening to a company that many of us, apparently, have some sort of attachment to. ...

    Well Fellas,
    I guess that's it, then. Martin, as we have always known it is essentially not going to exist any longer, except possibly as a name under which a buyer can manufacture. Gone is the...

    Well done, Mr. Fisher. I suppose it's back to the "information vaccum" for the peasants, then. The question remains, though.....how can the younger Martins, the heirs apparent, simply allow this...
