    Default Just Got Back From Marts.....

    Well.....
    If anyone is ever in Poultney VT and looking for sporting goods look no further. Marts Sporting Goods is the spot to stop. It is nice to find a gem of a shop within 45 min of home. Vermont is not the easiest place to find anything especially an experienced bow expert. He had all good to say about Martin and was willing to set up the bow for me even though I purchased it elsewhere. I needed new arrows so he was going to only charge me for them. I insisted on paying him for his time and he obliged after persistence on my part.

    He adjusted the following things from the stock "ready to hunt package"
    Re aligned the rest
    Lowered the peep sight just a hair
    Shortened Draw length
    Set Draw weight to 68lbs according to his scale (stated that with the change in draw length the bow was maxed out there)
    Cut a dozen arrows
    The bow draws very smooth with my current release and with the let off I feel like I can hold it back forever.

    X2 GD is right. With some trial and error you will be your own pro shop.

    Default Be your own pro shop

    It is funny you all mention that. I rarely pay someone else to do something that my own tools and hands could do for me. I have been known to work on alot of my own gear. I was even a professional ski and boot tech for a wile. Quality of work and common sense does not escape me so I feel like I could work on a bow if I got the chance.

    I fear I may be looking for another woman if I expand my workshop (aka our third bedroom and my office) much further. Then again a bow vice may be in order.

    Nice lookin' bow there! I shoot and '08 - you are gonna love it. One thing I can say is if you can learn how to do all the things that your shop did for you, you will enjoy it that much more. Ton of good stuff here that will show you the way. If you can't find it. Ask and they shall come!

    I started with mine being super green to tuning/set-up etc. Was shooting an old spare Cheetah my dad had and didn't have to do anything with it. Learned how to get everything set up, tuned, etc. Best thing I could have ever done because it has helped me understand how the bow is shooting and if anything starts to go "off", I know how to fix it.

    Keep us posted on that bear!
