    Default Fanboys

    Some are just impossible to get through and avoid. Poor guy over on AT is having problems with the "M" company - not getting much help from their CS. While pointing out that his situation sux and hope he gets it taken care of, I made simple comment (not sure why I bothered because I figured this would happen) that my local guy says they are one the hardest to work with for CS purposes to show a little simpathy. Said they told him he needed to be an exclusive dealer or they wouldn't work with him on warranty issues. So he chooses not to work with them in return or order/carry their bows. Nothing wrong with that.

    Enter the fanboys that immediately jump in and say my dealer is lying or full of crap and can't be held to the high standards it takes to be a "M" dealer - he probably isn't a dealer because he does shady side business that "M" doesn't allow, blah blah. Really ... because I said the same thing that a couple others say and point out you aren't going to have these problems with PSE, Bowtech, Hoyt you should just shoot them instead ... blah blah - yep they get it too. However did I point out that he should be shooting something else, just said that where I call home this wouldn't be an issue.

    Again, not sure why I bother ... some people are just that ridiculous.

    I like to check those threads out for pure entertainment.
    A little common sense goes a long way, unfortunately it's in short supply!

    Usually that's about all they're any good for. Rarely do any of such fanboys have anything of any substance to add to a conversation.

    Well we all like to laugh! I think that's all fan boys are good for.

    I'm sure that most of the fanboys that I have read would be sure that "their" Bow manufacturer would demand the return of their product should they associate with the like of us. LOL

    That's what Like about this site. We don't have to deal with them. Over on AT we'd be the lowest of the low. Wonder how they'd react if Martin shut AT down.

    I have an inlaw that shoots an "M" bow that is about ten years old and on its original string. This weekend he will pull out his bow that has been collecting dust since last deer season and fling a few arrows at my targets, call it good and think he is ready. He is a "M" bow guy that does archery. I think of us as archers that shoot Martin. It kills me because he has the latest "M" t-shirts and window stickers but doesn't have enough hunting gear.... fanboys... I just don't get it
