    The modular riser on my bow has shown no strain. I am not sure doing modular risers gives any edge other than a more affordable bow and riser possibilities perhaps. I have to figure though that the way to be different is not to do whatever your competitor does. Anybodies modular riser fly apart on them? I have heard of people talking about a case or so in which they have failed but as someone mentioned it has to be quite a small percentage I only assume.

    As for the new website it looks great! I think who ever the new web developer is nailed a great look for them and its leaps and bounds better already. The new image for this company has really taken hold for me. I would also like to comment on some of the obvious things people have already mentioned such as 2014 bows essentially being another past design with different limbs and cams. My opinion is that they walked into this in October only in a financial standpoint of securing the possibility to bring Martin back. I am pretty impressed with what they accomplished in such a small amount of time. As well the Martin risers (Design) are highly sought after in my experience. It's the cam development people have questioned and 2011 was a rough year for cam issues in this company as well accurate machining specs. I've not held or been able to spend any time with a 2014 Martin but the appearance works for me. If you take the same riser and put new cams and limbs on then you really have a different bow. While not an innovative approach it was smart for this years line. The draw cycle changes, performance changes, weight changes, and among other aspects.

    I think most of us can appreciate whats in the positive for this year and look for Martin to WoW you in 2015. In fact I hold this new management responsible to deliver on something we've not seen yet from Martin in 2015. Otherwise, they are just keeping a company alive rather than progressing and restoring it.

    Which are solid riser and which are modular riser? That is important. Common sense says that solid is better.

    I'm not sure, so don't quote me on this, but it kinda looks like the solid risers this year are the Scepter, Nemesis, Alien, and Lithium... unless someone has other info on the subject.

    On a side note, the modular risers are perfectly fine. They are milled and pinned together and the fail rate is miniscule. Just saying.
