Just after Savage bought out Bowtech, the quality of the finish went through the floor, with orange peel paint on the limbs, and other finished just peeling off.
I looked at a couple of new Bowtech's at a shoot on Sunday, and they have really turned this around. The limb finish is still a little delicate, and easy to chip with a bow stand, but the overall level of fit and finish is superb.
That is where Martin need to be, with robust finishes on the hunting bows, and something a little bit special on the target / 3D bows, even if it costs a little more (as it usually does).
I know price point is important, and currently the Shadowcat is about the best priced long ATA bow available in the UK, but another £50 would do no harm, IF the finish was just a little more classy.
