The only other Icon of the archery industry that I think compares to Gails passing is perhaps Mr. Fred Bear. Both were innovators, providing us with many new and exciting ways to pursue the sport of archery. Yes, he will be missed.....perhaps one of his sons will now step up to take his place. I know that we all are sending our deepest and sincerest condolences to the Martin Family for their tragic loss.
Dan & Terry have been running the business for years, decades in fact. Heck they are both at or close to retirement age. Probably just one of the other reasons the company has been for sale for a couple years. I like your comparison to Fred Bear. Both innovators and archery wouldn't be what it is today had it not been for them.
