    So many new bows, so little toy funding.

    i also emailed a dealer to see when he might get some in, i said we are talking about the 2012 bengal pro, the one that goes from 35# to 70#. he replied yep
    Difference between you and me is that you read the info in the catalog. I didn't and made an erroneous statement above. It does state that the bows with the Fury XT cam are adjustable 35# down from their peak weight.

    You were right and I was wrong. Although not many people need 35# of adjustment I can see where this would come in handy for somebody buying their youngster a bow and being able to work their way up. Keeps dad from having to buy a new bow every couple years.

    i think the 35# of adjustment is a great thing for Martin. Seems like there trying to compete with the Mission bows and seems as it will work well for them. Now,add rotating mods capable of the longer draw lengths(30-32"),and a couple more longer ATA bows,and i think alot of guys would come from the big 3 to Martin.

    the new cam is a rotating mod.

    your exactly right , i bought my twin grandsons at age ten 2 bows that were short enough for them , in just a little over a year there just about ready for reg. bows. gets exspensive. the new bengal would be ideal for that situation .one is ready for a 50#er the other is not. the 14 year old is strong for his age he has been eyebaling my aliens. the 16 year old he is trying to figure out what wt. woman he needs, he hasn't shot his bow in 6 months.

    Default bengal pro

    i have had the ocation to use a 35# bow. i bought a moab 35# to 50# when i had my shoulders replaced after i finished the theropy i started at 35 and worked my way up to 50, then switched to a 45/60 and eventually
    got back to shooting 60# with a bow like the bengal pro that would have elimanated a couple of bows. i really can't see me going down to 35 or going up to 70#, but it sure is a darn good looking bow!

    If you plan to sell it down the road it may be easier to sell if someone is looking for a used bow that can adjust 35 lbs.

    The 35# adjustabilty range is certainally appealing, grandson has already outgrown his bow, now looks like a toy in his hands, more than ready for the 50# limbs that I have to send the bow back to Virginia for ( early model Parker SideKick ) and has less than an inch of draw length adjustment left. Darn kids, stuff 'em full of prime venison sauage ( his favorite ) and all they do is grow!!
