    Default New From the SF Bay Area, Ca.

    Hello all, I need to get re-acquainted with archery again. Used to be heavily into archery in the 1990's doing all the field and indoor shoots in my area until life changes in circumstances brought other needs. Dusted off my equipment a few days ago and it felt good. Very luckily, I still have all the equipment one gathers over time so won't have to buy things, not yet anyway.


    I have three Martin compound bows, two Pro X series and a Lynx. The Pro X are fitted with Check-it target sights, peep, and stabilizers. I tried searching for any info on the Pro X's but no luck, does anyone have a date when they were introduced? I think I bought them in the early-mid 1990's.

    Thanks TEN RING I found the exact bow in this forum in fact, what I have is the Martin Pro-X Firecat series 4400 in red, another in black. Apparently, it's older than I thought perhaps late 1980's? Well as long as they function well, I'll continue to use them. Fortunately I took good care of them and they look new.

    Welcome! Sounds like some beautiful bows! You should throw some pics up on the "lets see what you got guys" thread in the photo session....

    WELCOME TO THE FORUMS CARL. Hey, if you think bows have gotten expensive don't bother shooting one of these newer ones. It'll eat a hole in your wallet real quick.
