    I understand that maybe a couple of favorites are missing this year, but I thought it was a pretty good showing... And some much needed re-tooling of Martin's marketing strategy. Would you like to elaborate on your disappointment? Just curious as to why, that's all.

    Don't care for the split limb bows. I have always loved Martin bows because they didn't do what everyone else has.

    Now that I can understand. I figured there would be some grief over the addition of split limbs. I personally don't have enough archery experience to have a valid opinion on the matter. I'll have to wait untill I own one to pass judgement; having only shot a couple of split limb bows, a few arrows through each, doesn't give me an honest feel for the breed overall.

    I wish that they had offered the split limb as an option, that way you could compare, say an Alien with to an Alien without and see which you prefer... maybe next year

    If I see another post about "These bows aren't fast enough" I think I'm going to flip right out. I mean seriously is this all people care about? Buy a firgin rifle is you want speed. Shooting and hunting with archery equipment is soooooooooo much more than how fast the arrow comes out. And it is NOT the only way a company can move forward. If that is the case, we will eventually loose the connection with the projectile which is what makes archery so cool to begin with. If you need the bows to be any faster than they already are (> 300 fps) you are in the wrong sport. PSE, Mathews and Bowtech will be glad to have you. Rant over.

    Well I believe they were very wise to offer some in solid and some in split limb. It gives Martin a whole new look. But one thing I would say I have had both split limb and solid limb bows come through the shop. They both have their issues. I like both. But won't make judgement until I look and shoot them.

    Agree. It is the same people complaining about the bows not being fast enough, that were complaining that the bows didn't hit advertised speed. Now that they will hit advertised speed, they aren't fast enough. What a cycle

    Good point! I think this must be a typo.

    If I am reading the catalog correctly - the Alien and the Blade are available with single or twin limbs.

    I think page is just pointing out the features of all bows. If they were to offer both, they would need to versions of the riser because of the roto cup on the solid and then how the split pivot has a bolt threaded through the riser.

    I'm think I'll be passing on a 2013 for now and going ahead with tuning the bajesus out of the Bengal and getting some custom threads on it. Want to see how much I can get out of this bad boy with the Fury XT cam on it and then look at getting an XT later in the year or for the 2014 year.
