    He has seen how well my Onza has treated me, and we've had several conversations about the changes Martin has made in their technology, and debated whether or not Martin has turned the page on their past onto a better chapter.

    Yesterday his Reezen derailed and blew up into a bunch of pieces! Both limbs are cracked, the cam is bent and the riser is slightly twisted. Today he and I went to a local archery shop so he could try a Hoyt, and he came home with a Cougar FC with the Fury cam.

    Welcome home brother!
    Thanks Brother....but you forgot to mention that I got you into Martin to begin with LOL............and thanks for the help with the new gear....

    Thanks for the wekcome back guys. Wabbit did a good deal of talking when I was trying to make a decission. I cant say he pressed for Martin, but he didnt turn me away either. He had all the answers to my questions. Good work Bro.

    I had a cable derail while testing a bow once and wish I had that on video because it scared the crap out of all of us.
    It happened so fast that I didnt have time to get scared. The only thing that worried me was that my 8 y.o. daughter was standing only a few feet to my right. I did loose some skin on my left wrist where the string hit me and a little bit of bruising. Noting too bad. I can tell you that I know nothing that matches the pain in the first few minutes after the string hits you that hard. I guess if you want to try it, hit your wrist with glancing blow from the sharp side of a roofing hammer. Pics to come soon.

    Bent Bow or the wrist? In your AT thread about the bent Reezen, maybe you could quote post #13 and add a pic of the bent Reezen, then sit back and listen to them howl. LOL.

    That would be pretty funny. Ok, I will go take a few pics and post them up. I dont really have a good spot to show the bent riser tonight. I will get a pic of that tomorrow.

    OUCH! HAd a string break once while shooting a Bear Tamerlane HC-30. A recurve. Broke at the lower loop and left a welt up my chin, on my lip and my nose. Still remember that moment like is was in the last 10 minutes! And that was in 1967.
