    Heres a different slant on things, just an observation so don't beat me up too bad.
    Martin Archery is the main sponsor of Spirit of the Wild with Ted Nugent. A very successful show no matter how you feel about uncle Ted. So.... why is it he shoots a 5 year old Firecat and not one of the new models? I can understand personal preferance, comfortability, and reliability of his current bow. But from a sponsorship stand point wouldn't you want your "investment" promoting your top dogs? Maybe mix it up to show Martins line up? An Onza 3 for a few shows, a Pantera, Silencer, new Firecat, and then there are the Rytera's.
    He has mentioned his Rytera a few times but I've only seen him use the old Firecat. Martin needs to up the ante a scosh. Not go overboard and force feed the masses, just highlight what they have. People don't know what they are missing with Martin, only what they've been told by "other" dealers. I say SHOW them what they are missing.

    Keep in mind that what you see on television is not in real time. Ted always has the newest models each year. What you are seeing on television is from past hunts.

    It may not be real time but I'm guessing some are of the current year. Seen one where he just had surgery and the info was consistant with his web site. The man is very educated and flamboyant. Alot of people tune in just to hear what he has to say and if he had the current models they also may take notice of what he's shooting. As a sponsor maybe a little persuasive conversation is needed?
    Not bashin Joel, just a curious observation. Have been a fan of Ted's music and hunting since the 70's and Martin has treated me very well so far and I don't forsee either changing anytime soon.

They have forgotten where they go there start with the little archery shop. So im going to stock martin bows i have shot them and they shoot as good as any 1000 dollar bow. i think alot of people will buy them if if they see there shop owners shooting them so our plan is to put a couple of 3d rigs on the circuit and showem what martins can do. a company this old most being doing something right. just my thoughts good luck to all
