to make a long story short, i was asked to be a staff shooter for obsidian archery out of canyon city oregon. one catch, i had to give up my trusty alphamax and shoot a martin. itold them to send me a bow and i'll think about it. i recived a nemisis about three and a half weeks ago and have been shooting the stuffing out of ths thing. remember i am a hoyt shooter from way back...........this is like nothing i have ever seen from martin, and im not talking about the split limbs, this bow is the the the way it the way it the lack of vibration and noise. a home run for martin. if you have not shot one of these do yourself a favor and go shoot one
