    You know (not to hijack the thread or anything, sorry), but I'm really kinda upset that they've changed the names of all these bows... I had to look on the website to see which one you were talking about. And I know its the Eclipse now but yes, the Bengal is a sweet bow... I bet its nice with the new limbs!

    I think they had to change the names to get away from the old brand and the fact that most of them were slightly redesigned. I don't know that I fully like the particular choices in the names, but still think it was necessary to do so.

    Know what you guys mean abut the name changes. I constantly have to refer to the catalog or website to see which bow resembles the older models.

    My world evolves around Slayr, Slayer, Bullet X, Phantom, Slayr, Slayer, etc...................to infinity and beyond!
    Addicted to Slayers or Slayr's, have more than one. Probably enjoy the mechanical side of archery the best. I have really enjoyed the articles and the stories on this site. I strive to help others with what little knowledge I have.

    Overall the Martin names are a good thing ( i think), yes getting into the "new" is why the name changes. I got a Alien in yesterday in the black carbon, WOW as well. I have sold...Blades, Lithium's, Alien's, Scepter's and Eclypses. I can say that the Blade is the only one with a little hand shock. However, for the cost, I could overlook it as a buyer. All have been very easy to tune and set up.

    Let me know if I can help in any way.... I love being a Martin dealer....very impressed....it has changed my business for the better.
