    Both the same.

    I would put my $$ on the Saber to be faster than the Threshold.

    There are other options including a used bow as well.

    It's personal preference. I personally would go with the Cheetah. It has an aluminum riser, so if magnesium bothers you, the Cheetah is good choice.

    both bows are in my budget range... The nice thing the guy at dicks told us is that you get 5 mods for free with the purchase but they may not make them anymore within the next couple of months.. What do you guys think? My dad is sold on that martin doesnt make the best low dollar bow but hey i think im going to give it a shot...
    As far as speed goes, the Cheetah and the Saber are the same. The Saber is lighter at 3.5lbs, but that isn't going to matter very much.

    Martin has made the Saber for a long time(on and off). It's an excellent bow, and so is the Cheetah. Don't let the price fool you. Martin bows aren't perfect, but I'd get another.

    Ok last question (I think) i know that some bows are made of one solid peice of aluminum or what ever the material is.. Is this the case with the cheetah or is it built out of 3-4 peices of the same material... BTW Thanks for everyones input!!
