I don't really have a problem with my martin, even though I have had problems with my martin. To be honest I don't think the rep on their compounds are founded. Yes they have a good price and good bows, although not very accurate stats for them. You can't get close to the advertised speed which is something that people expect from a fast bow. I really enjoy shooting my firecat and am getting decent speed although not what others are getting with bows advertised with lower fps. I have to say that I probably enjoy shooting my viper alittle more than the firecat but I've always enjoyed shooting traditional more I think. Martins quality has never been in question with their trad bows and fetch a high price which people are willing to pay. My viper costs 150 dollars more than a firecat 400 and more than some other bows as well. I think people who shoot martin trad stuff would get very upset if they have a problem with any martin bow compound or otherwise. At some point I will upgrade to a newer bow and will look at different make bows but for now I'm happy with what I have.
