    Amen Brother......... I kill stuff with a hickory selfbow and wood arrows which probably isn't even at 140 FPS. In a compound I'll take smoothness/ease of draw over speed any day.

    Well martin, props to you as it doesnt look like anyone wants better strings from the factory. You guys really made a great leap there. Sad to see the alien z go, but on the good side you are offering a 35 in ata bow with the hybrix/cat/nitros. And after 3 model years ( my az is a 2010) my az isnt obsolete. and even better, there isnt any bow out there at any price id rather shoot!! Ive looked around and no one can offer anything better! Im still giddy when i look at and shoot my bow! Well done martin. As for 2013. If your qc has been straightened out your bows should sell like mad once any residual bad rep is shed. I personally had to refit my roto cups on my ax and az. Shouldnt have had to, but now iknow its done right. Btw. one of the things that influenced my decision to buy martin was they didnt have split limbs. I still dont like split limbs. Just sayin.

    I really dig the cut down look of the nitro cams this year might look at that nemesis 35 but that is the only bow i really am interested in at the moment.

    I like the fact Martin is making a split limb bow but don't care for the shape of them. Looks like the limbs on Bears lower line bows. Bear went away from that design and in my opinion it was for the better. Not a Bear fan but I love the Anarchy. I think split limb bows are easier to draw and are quieter than a single limbed bow. 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.

Those years were a low point for Martin archery and they certainly had more than their share of quality control issues, but, what about the 2012 bows? Martin has really stepped up to the plate this year. I have a wall full of Martin and Rytera bows in my bow shop and I would defy anybody to find any flaws on any of them. Every bow that has come in to my shop has been looked over, they all passed the test and then some. My customers are very happy with their purchases as well. As with any product there's always room for improvement but so far, 2012 is been a great year for Martin archery and I am proud to be a dealer for them.

    I have read posts on both forums and got to admit I wonder when is it gonna be my time for a problem with my 2012? I am sure glad I bought a bow from that year instead of buying a 2011 ect. I have had no problems with mine but I don't shoot like the rest of you do either. I shot the heck out of my new Martin this spring and early summer but since June have only shot about 10 arrows through it. So to say I have not had any problems is not anything to rely on. It is the guys who put thousands of arrows through their equipment that I listen to. That being said I love my Martin and am a devoted Martin customer since I purchased my other Martin Used in 2001. Never looked back. Go Martin and best of luck to you!!!

    Anyone know if those new roller cable guards can be purchased and bolted on my 2012 Silencer or are the risers holes machined differently?

    You may not like the shape of the Bear Split limbs, but i'm here to tell you that all the bear bows that i've owned....i have not had one limb issue...and that is with a couple of thousand shots thru them each. They shape them for a reason.
    Here is my list of bear split limb bow that i've owned
    instinct
    truth twice...
    truth 2 - 3 times now
    & now a Bear Strike...which turns out to be my favorite!!!!
    Not one problem with any of them.
    They have turned out to be right on IBO......smooth, super quiet!!!!!, vibe free, plenty of power!! Very accurate, especially the strike.
    This is just my opinion and experience.

    To mount a CCs onto a riser the riser needs to have a slot machined into RH side of the riser (RH bow). The slot is approximately 1/8" deep and 3/4" wide. Also there are two hole drilled through the riser to bolt it down. If there is no such slot (I doubt it) then it won't fit.
