ArkMartin welcome to the forum. I respect a lot of bow manufactures but I think you made a great choice. Most people don't know how nice a Martin can be because the market is not saturated with TV and magazine ads like many other brands. The more popular their brand becomes and the higher sales they make the higher the price goes on their bows. A higher price should justify a major performance or technological advance. Look at me running on and on here.... Welcome again to the forum!
