    Default Why??

    Why is the martin onza 3 almost 100 dollars more then any of the other martin bows?? Is it of better quality? feel better in the hand? or is it just a higher demand so they saw room to raise the price? just curious after serving through tthe website a little.

    My guess would be more time machining that crazy riser design.

    Ditto, on the riser. Not only does it take more time, but a larger piece of aluminum stock to start with, most of which ends up in the chip pan to be recycled.

    the onza 3 retails about the same as another company's bridged riser's mag cast handled bow, which also is spec'd with less performance.

    So at even $100 more than any other martin bow you are still getting a much better product than a similar competitors product? Yep sounds like Martin to me that is why i switched to Martin! Great prices and even better products!

    me personably did not care for the onza.. It was tops on my list but i was dissapointed on the vibration of the bow and the feel. But thats just me. I liked the cougar and silencer much better.

    Actually it is the same price as the Firecat with Hybrid cams and less than the Scepter V.
