    Maybe there is a new design on the way? Maybe they don't sell enough to make it worth carrying one?

    In the last few years, Martin has dropped the longer draw bows. If you did a survey, I think that you'd find that most on this board have a short draw length, as mentioned, find it difficult to believe that Martin has dropped the Leopard without having another bow to take it's place in the line-up.

    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.

    The Heartbreaker is an Assassin but made for short draw archers with slightly different cams. If your a short draw archer your still better off with the Heartbreaker at a 26 inch draw with 60 lbs max then you are if you used an Assassin with same settings. The Assassin is definetly a winner no doubt about it. May take a little while to find one used fairly cheap. I have a feeling the new Bowtech lineup will be better this year.

    I think the HB would be a little short for me. All the bow companies are making such nice stuff they all need to be at the top of their game.

    I posted this up about the Heartbreaker for the original poster cause they were looking for a great short draw bow. You are correct about how all bow companies have to stay on top of their game. One thing I can say about Martin is that their great Customer Service will help them stay up. I honestly think Mathews is starting to fade a little. Im glad cause their bows are overated. Id raether buy a nice Martin for half the price.
