    Default Updates on the warthog

    Hey Guys,
    Been a while since I've posted anything, but any of you Warthog owners out there have updates on the Warthog with the new solid core limbs? I purchased my Warthog about a year and a half ago now, and went through some of the laminated limbs before Martin finally sent a set of the solids. So far, so good. Speed is still a bit lower than with the laminated, but at least they're not (so far, at least) failing. I really like the Martin risers, so would like to make the Warthog my "go to" hunting bow, but I need to make sure that it's dependable first. I also seem to be able to shoot the Martin better than any of my other brand bows. Any input/updates will be appreciated!

    So far, no replies to this querry.....isn't there anyone else who has any experience with a Warthog that has been retrofitted with the new, solid core limbs? My shooting with my newly fitted Warthog has been a bit limited, but would love to hear from someone who may have sent a lot of arrows down range....how the bow performed, etc.
    Thanks in advance....

    As far as I know, there is very few, if any, members on here that shoot Warthogs, so this is probably the reason you received no replies.

    user rdmwc is the only one that I recall having a warthog. For limb upgrades, I've read on AT that Elites barnesdale limbs fit some Martins and Sceptorman30x has or had a set of Martin Barnesdale limbs for sale.

    Your experience is a carbon copy of mine with my 2009 Warthog. The new solid limbs seem to have done the trick, although I too have noticed a small loss in speed.. The bow is shooting extremely well and of all my bows, I shoot the Hog with greater accuracy. I feel very confident in it's dependability since the change of limbs.

    Hope this helps and good huntin!

    Yeah, there's something about the ol Hog. ATA not too long and not too short, kind of like a Goldylocks type of bow, and for me it holds as close to perfect as a bow can get. Remember when I offered it to you, sure glad you didn't take me up on it cause I'll never offer it up again, but I might leave it to ya in my will LOL.....and if my wife ever sees the back of that sofa, you might be getting it sooner than ya think. eeeeeekkk
