    From the shape of the riser, the inlay window and the bracket and cable rod, I'd say late 1980's early 1990's Martin from the Lynx family.

    Shadowcat(s) with Barnsdale limbs: Davis The System, Free Flyte rest.

    That would be the Lynx from the very early '90s with the first version of the Sonic wheels. It is not a firecat. Note the grip is part of the riser. The firecat, even the ones from the early '90s had wood grips bolted to the riser.

    Agree, not a Firecat. They also had wood inlays at riser ends.......part of the pro series back then.
    I had a '89 or '90 Firecat and still have a '96 Firecat with Ultrasonic wheels, but don't remember that particular wheel shown. My guess is 91-92, and Lynx

    Looks like my old Lynx, different wheels tho. Could'nt tell you the year as the Lynx was givin to me, was the neighbors old bow, and he could'nt remember when he bought it. That one needs a string.
