    Default Well took my bow in to shop...:( sad day indeed

    So I had the wife take my bow into the shop. Noticed some issue with the bottom and top limb yesterday. The shop said that the limbs are delaming. So its going back again to Martin. This bow was replaced by Martin already and had issues with draw mods and now this. Makes me sad...Kind of miss my Hoyt. The Martin is a Shadowcat so I love the longer axle to axle. my Hoyt was a Vulcan. Short axle to axle. Loved the bow just wanted something longer and lighter in the draw wt. The shadowcat is a 60lber. So now I am in a holding pattern to see what Martin will do for me. this time. I'm mad but glad I caught it before it did it at full draw...

    All my dealings with customer service have been excellent, I had an issue with thread lock on every screw on the bow. One of my friends had an issue with his onza (early 2011 model). Martin is sending it back to him with a new riser, rod and cable slide, sts, and string. Before you get frustrated give the c.s. dept. a chance. Good luck

    Dry fire my bow LOL I am drawing between 54 and 62 lbs and shooting 408 gr arrow... It does suck and I know the c.s. will take care of me but still frustrating. I have owned 2 hoyts without any problem for the 4 yrs I had them. I had 3 bowtechs. well 2 bowtechs and they replaced one because the top limb bolt stripped out of the risere and blew up in my lap....that was fun. happened 1 month from hunting season. After the season I gave the bowtech to my father in law. If my hoyt was longer axle to axle who knows maybe I would of kept it. Love how the martin shoots though,but also love the bridged riser look. Like the looks of the nemesis from rytera. Would love to see a it longer then then 32 axle to axle though. My reason for buying the shadowcat was the idea of shooting with fingers. did that for a few weeks to just frustration so I tied on a loop and shot with a release. so my ideal bow would be a 34+ axle to axle since my draw is 29.5 like the longer bows. I have a feeler out on the alien Z since its 36 a t a. looks like it could be a great bow.. Well hopefully Martin will let me knkow whats going on with the bow when they get it.

    This is just picking a straws, but the Nemisis is 34" long. I have two of them. Still not a good finger bow for you though. IMO the Alien Z is too short, too, even at 36".

    well I tried the finger thing and well could shoot ok but not good. so I gave up the glove and stuck with the release. If I were to pick up a new bow right now today. I would be looking ofr something in the 34 a to a range. longer is good for me I like the longer a to a. My last bow the Hoyt vulcan. was a shooter 32 a to a and a 6in BH. But with sore older shoulders had to get rid of it. Makes me think sometimes I should of kept it. more so when I have a bow less then a 1yr and its been replaced total replacement, cams replaced,strings replaced. just seems like alot of issues for one guy and one bow. With what everyone says Martin will take care of me. I just hope the let me know wat is going on with it.
