    Default Crossfire bows ?? Are they a forgotten bow ????

    I never hear any talk or know anyone shooting the Crossfire. I mentioned on my last post about me being a short DL. I never shot one before I wonder how hard I can shoot with one if those at a 26 in DL. Of course I wish they made one in 70lbs max pull, LOL. I know Darton has an awesome short DL bow the 3800 SD that shoots 310 IBO 27 in DL and 60 lbs. Brace is 6 inches. But the bow still like $800-900 bare bow thats crazy

    ive not seen a Crossfire anywhere other than the Martin site. I'd love to shoot one. that seems to be the answer to my dream of a dual cam Cheetah. so,YES. it seems to be the forgotten one. and I'm not sure why. it seems like Martin would push their shortest AtA speed bow to at least attempt to compete with the other companies.

    I think most will go for the Firecat instead. Never seen a crossfire on eBay.

    I shot a Crossfire a few times earlier this year. It reminded me alot of the Cheetah I shot back in '09, but as a dual cam it was a bit harder on the draw. It's a really nice bow, but I went with a longer ATA bow instead. The longer ATA bows just seem to hold a little bit steadier for me.

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    Same here. The one exception is my Bear Mauler, excellent balance and shoots like a longer ATA bow.

    I did see a 2010 on Ebay once for over $500 so I passed at the time. It does have the same specs as the Cheetah with dual cam. Id look into one but now with all the TRG and SOS problems will pass till they get those problems fixed. So far My 2010 Cheetah I am happy with it. Just wanted to hear some of others feedback about the Crossfire cause I have yet to see one.

    I honestly think there are too many bows in the current lineup. It is strange there aren't more crossfires about though.
