Hey guys! I am new to this forum,but not to Martin Bows. I am now back shooting my favorite manufacturer,Martin,of course. I started shooting them in the late 80s,and up.til a year ago. My friends talked me into shooting another brand. What a mistake! This manufacturer is way overpriced,and the majority of the shooters are smooth. Any guesses? Anyways,I just bought a brand new Silencer. I wanted a Warthog,but not produced this year. I sold my 2010 Warthog and purchased a 2010 Mathews Monster. All I can say is,I am so glad to have my Silencer! I'm pulling 10# more and not abusingmy shoulder anymore. This bow is awesome! The mathews was so harsh and loud! Never again will I leave this brand. I love it. And it lives up to its name. Thank you for having me on here with you,and I look forward to your wisdom. I will also help anybody on here who will listen to me. Thanks again, Tom.
