    Default What do you all think of the 2010 Cheetah......

    tell what the Martin Maniacs think
    i'm a little worried about speed and the shorter ata.....
    some real world #'s would be great
    I couldn't find a bengal or a parker inferno for sale, so i might have to consider the cheetah or the firecat..

    also looking at the 2010 firecat as well, i wouldn't mind a little more speed at times since i'm a 28 inch draw.....63ish lbs.....

    thanks
    guys

    Bengals, those that have them aren't giving them up. I love my Cougar which would be old for most so I would think the Cheetah would be comparable. Martins are an acquired taste(like blue cheese or orange marmalade) especially today when they are not amongst the most common bows sold.

    Computers and their development paths have made us a malcontent society. If you have the Cheetah take the time to get to know her, contentment with Godliness is great gain. What value are others opinions, I would never ask someone else what they thought of my wife, ultimately what they think hasn't any bearing on our relationship and even though a bow is an inanimate object, ownership should be a relationship. JMHO

    I've got a 2010 cheetah. I love my bow. Looks kind of odd, being a 6'3'' guy holding a "toy bow" I did have some limb issues with ky bow, but thanks to the great support, Martin hooked me up and got me shooting in no time. I think if I were to so it over again, I would opt of a longer bow.... really wish ibwoulda done a pantera, but oh well. If u do get one, u will get more bang for ur buck than any other bow out there.... it is fast, with some parts can be quiet, and is plenty accurate for its size.....

    i would expect 250fps with a 390grain aarow on the cheetah, and 270 with the firecat. obviously lighter aarow is more speed. im shooting a 340 grain aarow at 285 fps with a 27.5 inch draw lenght, at 62 pounds with my alien x....... i really wish i had knabbed an alien z though..... ive been kicking myself for quite some time now......

    I am selling my 2010 Cheetah on Ebay if anyone is interested. It is like new and have some nice accessories to go with it. The auction is already up over $240.00. The Cheetah is a great bow. I decided to go back to Bowtech with the Heartbreaker since Im such a short draw. Its advertised as a Woman's youth bow but I love it how it shoots and it fits me well. I can't keep both bows
