I purchased an Onza 3 about a month ago. This is my first Martin bow, my decision to purchase the Onza 3 quickly rose to concerns after reading about all the issues with TRG and SOS from string slap noise to extreme cable wear. As of yet I have had NO issues with cable wear, the bow is relatively quiet but there is a noticeable noise which I believe to be the string slapping the SOS.
I have found the bow is very accurate and enjoyable to shoot. I am shooting a Victory HV arrow with Blazer vanes 29" at 329 grains and 65 lbs draw weight. The bow is shooting @ 300 fps with a QAD Ultra rest, string loop and rubber string silencers set at 29" draw.
So far I am very pleased but keeping my fingers crossed that I don't have issues with the TRG wearing the cables.
I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather.. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.
I have 2 Onzas, and not a problem one with either bow. Both are very quiet as well. Bought my first HHA sight last weekend, and LOVE it so far. Only problem I have seen with the sight is, it's too bright. I took some black electrical tape and placed it over the top half of the fiber optic wrap, and that did the trick. Still plenty bright to shoot well after sunset, but no more "halo" around the pin in the bright sunlight.

I got the bow on Thursday and got it all setup but due to having two jobs I didn't get to shoot till Sunday I have to admit im very happy with it so far. Its fast accurate and quiet. I spent about 20 minutes sighting it in and then an hour having fun I love the bow i'll post some pics soon
Welcome aboard! Tim
I had zero bow experience and learned to time mine so it can't be that hard. There are YouTube videos and threads here. If that don't work you can PM me for my number and I will talk you through it. It's not that bad but seems intimidating at first.
