    Does she have to have a 2012 bow? If so there are other manufactures that will suit her needs. Their gain, Martin's loss.

    Would a recurve work better for her?

    You can't buy what they don't offer. What other bows are you looking at?

    Not for sure..........but I don't think that we have seen the entire line. I just can't imagine that they would have dropped the Leopard without replacing it with something similar or would have done away with the short draw Nitro cam on the Crossfire.........just thinking outloud........

    Seriously, I'm not a mathews dealer, however, once again I have to bring up the new mission bows. Short ata, super adjustable dl and dw.
    You are not going to find a nicer bow at a better price that will fit such a wide variety of people.

    Here is something that may be perfect for your wife although it is not a Martin. The new Bear Outbreak is a bow that sports a massive draw weight range of 15 to 70 lbs and draw lengths from 16 to 30″, all while achieving an IBO rating of 308 fps. Bear actually has 4 bows that would fit the bill for her 23" draw: Outbreak, Siren, Home Wrecker and Apprentice 2.

    Id look into a Bowtech Heartbreaker. I just went to one 6 weeks ago and it goes down to 22.5 inch draw and its the best short draw bow on the market. I am a fan of Martin bows and used to shoot a Cheetah. Im a short draw guy and wanted to pick up the extra speed. The bow is simply amazing !!! In 2012 Bowtech is coming out with the Assassin SD which is the same as the Heartbreaker but 70 lbs limb max. Bowtech will still have the Heartbreaker out for 2012.

    I read somewhere that the Assassin is BowTech's number one selling bow. I have shot one and they have hit a home run with it. Fast, nice draw, great finish, good price. If one ever turns up cheap on Craigslist or locally I will buy it.
