My 2011 Shadowcat arrived last Thursday with 2 scratches which are about 1.5 cm long, 2 mm wide. (1 straight scratch, one v-shaped) The bow was delivered from Bowsports.com in the sealed plastic bag so it must have occurred at Martin.
This is naturally really annoying each time I see it, but I don't have the patience to have the bow replaced because of that.
Would it be possible to get some form of compensation for example some decals for the hardcase and other Martin branded stuff?
Seems like the Tech staff don't read the threads here, but perhaps they should. Will have to call them later unless I find an e-mail somewhere else on their site.
That aside it looks like it is a wicked bow, but will have to wait until the end of the week to get hold of a bow press.
