    Now, the looks of some of the bows I don't like, I think it is ugly. That is my opinion, if you think it is beautiful that is your opinion. I don't need to shoot it or see it in person for that. BTW I have see pictures of you and know you are ugly and don't need to see you in person to verify it!
    There is nothing wrong with the way I look.
    Besides if you weren't guilty why were you the first to answer? HA HA!! LOL!

    looks like they are still using the crappy pleather supposedly thermal grips, which they definetly are not after my freezing experience this previous weekend. mine came unglued
    so many times i bought a limbsaver tentacle grip. these bows do look sick. I hate that i got my exile in august because i really like the looks of these new ones. i love that they got
    rid of the trg and sos. even though i have not had problems with mine. the new system they have look more practical. the carbon fiber black look is awesome is well. in the past
    year or so i have noticed a lot of people going to solid black bows and i must say i think i will do the same with my next one. unfortunatley i am bound and determined to hunt
    with my current bow at least three years, so by that time martin will be way ahead than what they already are

    I like the looks of the Bengal, sets it apart from other designs.

    Possibility of a new Prowler coming to this household for the wife.

    You guys think I can sneak another new one in the house for myself???

    Her first kill with the new Prowler would prolly be me!!!

    Im impressed to say the least, went back to simpleness with the rod/slide...I like that. I hope the QC is also a few more steps up...No new bows for me, although that Pantera, and Scepter really catch my eye...If that scepter happened to be a shoot-through, I would be dumping the money on a new one...maybe next year!

    I was just saying to my buddy on the way to work today that 2012 might be the year for a new bow for me. I come home to this... a Cougar for 2012, seriously? I know it looks like the FC 400 and 360, but I am super excited about it. Now to see the price tag to see if I can stay excited.

    I have been shooting Martin bows on and off since the late 1980's, but not being a historian of names and the bows they were applied to, I am just pleased to see many of them back. Martin has always held over a few models, updated them, installed new cams, etc. Every manufacturer does, otherwise they would have to come up with a complete new range every year, and the cost of that would be too much.

    Personally, I am delighted to see a 40" ATA bow in the range, I know there is only one, but that one more than Bowtech offer, and with Hoyt's range of finger bows reducing in 2012, I am just happy to see that Martin are 'keeping the faith' in finger shooters.

    I am unlikely to buy a new bow in 2012, I just have my Shadowcats shooting the way I like them, plus of course the 'other' bow just arrived. But I think the range is good and it will appeal to a wide range of archers, including the tens of thousands who never visit this forum and who shoot for sport / fun / results and really don't care what a bow is called and when that name was last used and on what type of bow.
