    I don't know if it was a misprint or what, but I looked it up on Bass Pro's website. It's hard to tell anything definitive from their pics. Don't know where they came up with the X4. Maybe they meant XT. So far as I know Martin doesn't have anything with quad/split limbs for 2012 and I doubt the 2013 bows are out yet. I would have heard. Don't lok for 2013 bows till at least November.

    Zoom in. It is a Martin but unlike anything on their website. I know Martin has always offered their bows to Dick's, Bass Pro, etc with different names, but this riser is different. It has split limbs. What is also very unusual is the limb pockets. Check those out.

    Kinda goofy lookin' the riser is different, looks like an older model. The VEMs aren't the most current for sure. Looks like it has a limbpocket on it to accept the old squared off limbs ... but they do look split.

    Bcriner,

    I hadn't taken the time to slide up and down on it. You're right on all counts. Now I'm wondering. It could be a prototype offering for 2013 for sure. The only thing I can see that resembles anything from 2012 is the cam and the strings, of course. I'll bet my sales rep doesn't even know anything about this. Makes me wonder though. How do you guys find this stuff? Way, way too much computer time.

    WOW that is not what I was envisioning. I'm not big on first year changes but I hope it is a shooter. Kind of like the look of it.

    Now this is interesting. For all those who might be wondering, the name "Exile X4" is on the grip. A split limb Martin, this might be getting good (Not that they aren't good already).
