    Default Martin Stands Behind Their Product

    Not sure if you all saw this yet or not, but well worth a look. Kudos to the Martin Family.

    Nice, Ike's videos are pretty sweet, he seems to do a pretty fair job on his reviews. I gotta say that its pretty cool that he would eat crow like that. It's also nice to know that Martin has the guts to put their stuff out like that. But it does have me thinking about the TRG SOS conundrum; why is it that they shipped a bow that doesn't have them installed?

    Cool You have got to like Ike's reviews....

    I enjoy all of his stuff on youtube. His reviews unlike others are usually very thorough and he points to the things that are important to archer's and bowhunters. Thanks for sharing kylecurtis04!

    Nothing bigger than a man who can admit he has made a mistake, and to do it via a public medium is pretty good stuff.

    Good to hear, and good for Ike admitting his mistake. Well, now for the bad news......the local bow tech that set up the original bow that Ike was unimpressed with is the only local dealer for me. lol Thank God for this forum and you guys being helpful! Now, this video does bring one thing to mind, why doesn't Martin make sure ALL their bows that get shipped out are set-up like this one was for Ike? So it will cost a little more, I think people would be willing to pay just a little more for a bow that is set-up correctly from the start. It would certainly cut back on the Martin bashing we hear so much of, and would make for alot happier customers.

    True but the bow they sent to Ike was setup at 70# and a 30" drawlength. I don't think that everyone shoots at that spec so what is setup for one person would not be for another. Maybe they need to have training classes on how to setup their bows that the tech can go to.

    Well the bow they sent was set up for the IBO test only. 30", 70#, and 350 gr arrow. And the only thing on the strings was a d-loop. It would be nice however if they would at least put as much attention to specs on the bows going out as they did for that bow. My bow came direct from the factory and ATA and BH were all messed up. The only thing "correct" was the draw weight.

    x2, so what was different between the two bows besides the trg/sos. are the cams timed perfect? is the ata right on instead of 1/2 short like most of the bows we got? what did they do to make it faster so i can know my bow is at its peak. i don't have a chrono and i know a deer doesn't know the difference between 300 + fps and 285 but we all want peak performance
