    Default Why Martin Archery?

    1. Resonably priced bows, with the $ as tight as it is for some out there right now there is simply no better bang for your buck. You can buy a Martin bow and deck it out with the best accesories and still come in under the price of a bare bow from many manufactures.
    2. The best CS hands down, espcially for those of us in remote places (nearest pro shop is a 2 hr drive and $50 bucks in gas) I can't even get the simplest of parts for another bow without jumping through the dealer hoop, just need a simple string stop part and it's no go. Joel has helped me out more than once to get my bow back up and running.
    3. My 2011 Onza was an early version and had it's share of trg/sos problems, the riser was not cut to recieve the sts, sent it in and a NEW bow came in about a week.
    Why Martin is my goto bow!

    Absolutely! The voice of reason rings true...

    I changed to Martin in 2010 when I purchased a 2009 Pantera. It out shot my high dollar PSE and was a pleasure to shoot. Since then I have sold my BIG 3 bows, I'm know a proud owner of a 2011 Fire Cat 400, 2011 Onza III and a 2012 Pantera with cloaked Cams. Price, quality and comfort is why I shoot Martin. I have been a part of archery in hunting, 3D and shooting for fun for over thirty years. What really funny and sad is some of my hunting buddies still think that they have to have one of the BIG 3 bow to be with the in. That's why I win the turkey at the turkey shoot and they are still looking for there arrows. Thanks Martin.

    I think this is the biggest problem today. It's like if you don't have one, there is a stigma that you are wrong for not. I'm all for those that are brand loyal, but for guys just getting started ... you don't need to drop $900+ on a bow. That is just crazy! There was a post on AT guy said he was brand new to archery and he bought a Vector Turbo. Really!? is what I thought. Next thing you know a guy is going to say he is brand new and went out and bought a Carbon Matrix or Element. It's just nuts. The fact that all of the local shops pretty much only carry the big 3 and won't even speak of other brands doesn't help either. Granted, they are the bows that sell, but I'm sure they could find a good deal of business if they would offer bows in a more reasonable price range to allow more to purchase and get into shooting.

    Everything being said is so correct. I like the bow and the way it shoots as well as the Customer service Martin gives. Also when I want a back up bow I don't have to pay out big bucks. Considering I have a had to buy 4 bows and one more to go for the family. In the end all 5 of us will be a Martin family.

    i agree with you totally, if you dont have the newest bowtech, hoyt, or matthews...people look at you with your martin bow like your homeless. Everytime i go to my bow club, people notice that i have some high dollar upgrades on my bow like the axel armotech sight, and the vaportrail limbdriver pro v rest, then they ask me what kind of bow is that and when i say martin, its a long sigh and a ohhh. Howeveer, i love being the underdog and its their misfortune for paying insane amounts of money for a bow that has a rougher draw and weighs more, aka PSE, etc.

    I agree with all that's been said. I also like Martin because they are a family run business, and something of an underdog in the archery world. They seem to be one of the most underrated companies around, yet one of the best companies in archery. Great product, customer service, affordability, reliability, and they have the best forum by far. Plus, it's always great to see the looks I get when I can match, or outshoot any other bow on the market, for half the price.
