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 quality.....in the fit.....in the finish.....in the way it feels.....in the way it shoots....in 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
