    Default Made in USA?

    My 2010 Firehawk has a sticker that says "Made in USA", is the bow manufactured in the USA out of parts that are made in US or imported?

    All bows have some imported components, I don't think any bow manufacturer makes the e-clips, axles,etc. There was a good post on Archerytalk that explained what is needed to be classified as made in the USA.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Thanks for the welcome. I guess I meant the main components.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Think I may have read part of it. Overall, I like the bow. It's fast 315fps, quiet and short axle to axle length, 30 inches. I hunt ground blinds a lot and length can be a killer. The hard part is finding a local dealer that has a descent selection of pro series bows in stock. Easy to find Hoyt and Mathews. Even Bow Tech. Martin is harder to find in western/central NY.

    Neils archery in endicott ny carries martin. I dont know how long that will be, they seemed displeased with the 2011 line and the techs were pushing the owner to drop the line. I remember a few places in elmira and owego that carried them if that helps.
