Martin or High Country
Hello I'm new to the Martin Forum page and this is my first post. Anyways I'm in the market for a new bow. As of right now I'm shooting a Martin Saber Pro SE. I love my bow it shoots good but want something with a little more speed for those longer shots. I've shot pretty much every bow on the market except the new Martin bows. I really like the High Country X-10 and Iron Mace. Those bows are nice but since I have a Martin bow already I would like to shot a new Martin bow before I pull the trigger and get something I'm not going to be happy with. My question is has anyone shot the new Alien or Nemesis and have also shot the High Country X-10 and Iron Mace. I have look and called every Archery Shop in the Oklahoma City and surrounding areas but nobody has a the new bows yet and don't know when they will get any new bows or if they will continue being a Martin dealer. I just someones opinion on what they think about these bows. Thanks for your help.
Welcome to the forum. Finding a dealer is a pain. I bought mine from eBay after doing a lot of research. The Onxa is my favorite. Good luck.

If the lithium shoots anything like it's four-father with single limbs, I buy it without shooting it. Wish I never sold it to a bud.

I've had plenty of Martins and shot them all very well and never had an issue. The Iron Mace is an awesome bow! 33.5" ata 7"bh, 340IBO. Smooth draw, solid wall, quiet, accurate killin machine. Let-off adjustable with limb stops from 65-80%. Also has rotating mods. The X-10 is supposed to be a step up from the IM. The 2014 Axis is the X-10 w split limbs but uses draw specific mods like Martin does.

Finding a Martin dealer with anything in stock you can try is difficult at best, and around here where I live it is impossible. If your interested in Martin best you can do is research the heck out of it, ask guys on here what they think of certain models, and go from there. If testing it first is a must a new Martin is likely not in your future. That being said, I bought mine (Nemesis) off ebay on a prayer it would be half as good as the reviews I had read and it has far exceeded my expectations. If you do buy online, I recommend using a dealer, like fishingandhuntingUSA. If I had been able to find a dealer when I was buying that had them I would have bought through them and not ebay, I like giving my money to more local shops that employ real people who care about the brand and know their crap.

If the martin bow you have is setup right for you. And you said it shoots good, but needs more speed. Why look anywhere else. Get a newer speed & power martin bow.
