    a couple years with bad limbs will get ya that...but it seems martin has fixed that, they have a few more things to work on, but im confident they will make a good return...If people wanna downplay a manufacturer, let them do it, there isnt one bow out there that is better than another

    Tires go flat, concrete disintegrates, mountains crumble, and World Trades Centers topple, in general, things do fall apart. I am very suspect of bows that hang on racks. Compound bows have problems. Some compounds have more problems than others, some users have more issues than others.

    Thankfully I haven't had the equipment malfunctions that others have experienced. Maybe my bow isn't new enough, oh well.

    The reason they are always slamming Martin bows is because they need to feel better about spending twice as much on a bow that can't outshoot a Martin. It's like buying a Porsche that can't outrun or outcorner a Ford. You gotta say something bad about the Ford. To me, it all just sounds like buyers remorse. lol

    I hate the Martin Basher's also.I had a broken limb after only 39 days of use (new bow) but Martin took care of me in a very short time.Things happen.I am a devout Martin fan.
    I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather.. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

    Just put a string on a tree limb, and go shoot some arrows.

    I wouldn't go that far. I have yet to see a stock (any year) ford beat a stock 86 Porsche 911. Hell even the C5 Vet will stay away.

    Question Martin is to Ford as Hoyt is to Porsche????

    Ford did stock way different then Porsche did stock based on their different distribution and marketing....and I have driven some pretty hot Porsche's in my time but I will take a Shelby 'Stang over a Porsche any day but then I will take back straps over Filet Mignon too...
