Who cares what these people have to say. That's why I don't even get on AT. Exept when our site got hacked and I wanted to know what was going on out there. The simple fact is that "All bows are mechanical devices". Every thing that has moving parts and components that are under great amounts of stress or strain will eventually wear out break or fail. The frequency at which it happens is what you have to look at. So what, I have many friends out there that have and swear by many different brands of bows. Some people like fords and some people like chevy's and have many examples to back up each others claims but which is really better. I think its all in your experience. I remember a Bloody armed, PSE limb failure with one of my brothers friends back in the 80's that has shaped my opinion of their bows to this day, but thats me. My Martin is exactly what I wanted in a bow and their customer service so far has made me very content and want to continue to keep buying martins for years to come.
