    Pretty sure your right. It was a nice idea though. Whats with all the talk about limb issues with solid limbs? Is this an issue that still exists or did they fix the problem at some point?

    I hope Martin remembers to make their bows user friendly for us guys that do our own work. The concept of not needing a bow press to work on your bow is a huge factor to figure in when buying a bow. Pro shops are a joke in my area and the nearest one is a 200+ round trip. If not I'll be shooting or buying 2012 bows instead of the newest and greatest.

    I am not a fan of split limb bows and really sad to see Martin going to them.

    what is it about split limbs that has some against them.

    Clearly they must be better, why else would Martin start incorporating them ?

    I've more split limb bows than solid...by just a couple...lol

    i've had no problems with them. It is my guess that they are stronger, maybe create more fps, & quieter!

    The funny thing is whenever i brought my firecat or bengals in to my local shop just to shoot in his indoor range....he would always come over and grab my bow and fire a couple of shots and throughly inspect my limbs over and say that i'm getting lucky....
    Man that always had me feeling confident......................NOT!
    He would never inspect my Bear Instinct, Truth, truth 2 or my Strike now.....he would shoot them though.


    Some of the Old martin die hards should embrace this change........i'm sure it's for the better. Something needed to change.

    I have heard alot of people saying stuff like this in this thread. Was there a problem with the QD?

    I do know anytime you constantly remove and reinstall something from aluminum it wears faster than say steel. I am thinking of putting a stud in mine with a jam nut and getting a stabilizer with a female hole. That way the stress will not be on the riser every time i remove my stabilizer. I envision the QD eventually pulling through with enough times tightening down. Makes me nervous honestly but I cannot get my bow in the case with it on. I got to admit I get nervous every time I remove it.

    I think they will be just fine as long as the deflection # are the same.

I've owned 20 different bows in the last 5 years and the Guardian was hands down the quietest and I believe the limb design and shape had alot to do with it.
    Easier to draw? I think it is about the cams, not about the limbs being solid or split. My solid limb Onza 3 has a lot nicer draw than my previous Hoyt CRX 32 (split limb) which I Pretty much hated.
