    welcome to the forum.that bow is a great bow.we have some cheeta shooters on the forum and they dig em.if the bow has a sticker on the bottom limb look at the first 2 numbers in the bow# and that will give you the year it was made.if you could post a few pics of the bow it would help us help you with more info.if you know the year then i can get you all the specs for the bow.

    Welcome to the forum. I shoot a Cheetah and love the heck out of it. Really easy to tune and work on, shoots great with almost no shock that I am aware of. I can't really speak to the speed, don't have much to compare to and haven't chrono'd it yet, but it is quiet and consistent.

    @Grave - for the sticker I didn't know that and makes me kinda wonder. I got my Cheetah used and was told it is an '08 but the sticker starts "06" ... hmmmm

    that sucks.i think the sticker tells all.i have seen a few martins on craigslist and the seller is trying to say its a 09 or 10 then they show the sticker and its 04-05

    Trying to get that figured out then. The site doesn't list the Cheetah in '06 but has it in '07-on. The spec chart for '07 shows the m-pro with the F7 mod at 30" and the '08 F7 at 29". There is a difference in the cable length too by 1/2" - My sticker says 32 which matches up with the '07 vs. the 31.5" for the '08.

    Not that this all maters a ton, bow still shoots just fine, but would like to know if I was told and been under the impression the bow is a 2008 when it could be a 2007 or later.
