    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!
    are you telling me that martin drilled a hole so you could fit a rear mounted sts. Funny i ran into that situation with them with my 2011 exile and that wasnt an option.

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.
    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.

    I am brand new to Martin archery as of a couple months ago, and lemme say I fell in love with my exile the first shot. So light and the smoothest shooting bow I've ever drawn back. The customer service is by far the best ever. I had a problem right from the get go with the trg systemand Joel sent a cable slide and sts with no questions. Great job to Martin and thank god I switched when I did cause here in a few years the big 3 bare bow will run you 1500$.

    Answer.....

    all review and comment on this website convinced me to look at martin bow and read the spec and review.
    Least archer selling their martin, because the bow has no problem.
    Big brand bow (how good it perform, on and on. but so many selling it as 2nd hand)

    thay why i choose martin archery.

    I have never needed to use the customer service department for my '10 Saber. That is reason enough for me. Hopefully I wont when I man up and get the Onza. But, I feel that I will be in good hands if something comes up. Thanks Martin Family.
