    Well guys would have to agree. I'm too very curious if so is true, but will make my decision once I here from some one of management (Martin) and or read something in the Media section. I've sold two bow and will pick up a 2013 bow this year, but will keep my Fire Cat 400 which the riser is about to get dipped in Predator Brown Camo, limbs will stay carbon. I research a few archery companies and within their respected catalog they will tell you were the limbs are made: Example limbs made by Gordon, Montrose Co. which also sell power tuff. So what's the bottom line. For me only: I would prefer a bow and or fire arm made in the USA.

    If those are the prices I am definately going to be looking at other bow companies or at least used Martin's and Ryteras. I liked Martin because they built great bows that were lower price than anyone, the prices of the higher end bows are no different than other companies

    I think the big change in price is because those bows have a solid riser no more 3 piece. the blade 4 had a 2 piece riser and that bow was 349. alot of people wanted a solid riser well they got it. The whole reasson martin did the 3 peace riser was to give the consumer a savings.

    Default Prices and limbs

    Do we even know if those prices are official? Wish someone from Martin will clear up this issue on the prices and limbs (made overseas or in the US) for us. If the Nemesis 35's limbs are not made by a reputable company then I am not buying a new bow this year. However, if it is then

    I think I might be a good idea to give Joel a call so he can answer all your questions. Just a thought.

    Those prices are roughly about $25-$30 above MAP, not suggested retail which is what you should most likely expect to pay.

    Although it is second hand info My local dealer went on a martin tour 2 weeks ago and was told the limbs have been out sourced. I believe he said china. We live right down the road from the factory and have many friends working at the plant. I dont think this is a rumor. I think its a shame that they needed to outsource but i also believe it is a better limb than what they had previously. Everything else is made right here locally.

    Ok, so I phoned Martin Archery, the limbs of the New Nemesis and Alien are sourced out, but to a company in the US! The prices are up as stated, the Nemesis 35 will retail around $850. If it shoots like I think it should then it still has my vote.
