    Default New Guy Here!

    Hello all! I recently embraced my desire persuing archery and obtained a Martin compound from a friend. It is an older model but I'm not exactly sure what model it is, the info sticker is completely blank. I do know that it is a Pro Series with Fury XRG Series which is still barely legible on the arms. Can anyone help me determine what model/year the bow was produced? I know it probably doesn't matter in the long run but I thought it would be nice to know. I am going to take it to the local shop here this week to get it restrung and adjusted. Thanks!

    1997 Martin Fury XRG. Checkout the following link. You can check the axle to axle lengths and the brace height to see if they match the specs given in the link. The shape of the riser and the cams looks correct. If that is the case that was a blistering fast bow at an IBO of 320 fps for 1997?
