    Default UPS headin this way :)

    Should be here Monday. I won't let the cat outta the bag just yet! From what I'm told it's the very last left handed 2011 model of the bow. Last year I also bought the last left handed 2010 Oneida Extreme to leave the factory. Kinda cool & kinda sad at the same time. Got the last one, but the models are dropped from the line up.

    Well guys, the Cat is definatly outta the bag. Don't really know what to think about it yet. Nice looking & feeling bow but there may be an issue with the limbs and I won't know till Thursday when I can verify things, I start my night shifts tonight.



    Last Wednesday I spent several hours on the phone with various Martin dealers in Nevada, California, and Washington trying to locate a left hand Firecat 360 with 50-65lb limbs and a normal cable slide. Everyone said they would check & get back with me. One dealer from Walla Walla was the only one to get back and said they had one left, black with 45-60lb limbs. After talking with him a bit he said he'd call them in the morning and ask about 50-65lb limbs & the slide.

    Last Thursday morning at work I got a call from him. He said the bow was made 6-22-11 and already had the TRG/SOS replaced with the straight slide. He also said the limbs were where I wanted them and topped out at 66lbs, so I bought it. Looking at all the tags on the bow tells me it has 45-60lb limbs? The numbers are changed with a sharpie marker except for the quality checklist which is clearly 60.4 pounds. So I'll have to wait till Thursday afternoon to check the poundage. Not a big issue, but possibly not what I was told.

    It only lets me attach 4 pics, so here's more.

    Also a little dissappointed in the finish/dip job, several blemishes. I had no choice in the color but can live with it.

    This also should have deen addressed at the factory.


    Just a little confused right now. I had two other possibilities lined up for half the cost of this one. One was new a 09 new in the box, and the other I never bid on. Kinda feels like I been played just to sell the bow. In the end it was my decision to buy the 360 because I love the riser.
