If you got nowhere today I would pester Martin through AT and Facebook. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, an if Martin truly does want to turn things around as they say, they will take care of you.
I would complain to Terry on AT it's actually his product and he is the one that sold out everything he could to pocket the money before they went under.
Rich and Jason will try to make every right for all the old warranties but they are at a loss with no parts to do it with. So you can complain all you want but know that they really do not even have to help you. I know they have covered many warranties that cost them a ton of money already and will do what they can to help you to but no one is perfect. Yea Yea I am 100% backing the new Martin, they have done every thing they can to work with me and I know they will take Martin back to the top of the chain

certainly hope your right, as i for one want to see Martin continue as a viable option for some one chasing a topline bow.

Honestly, the new management team would not have had to honor warranty issues on bows sold prior to them taking over. The fact that they do is a testament to their desire to bring the company out of the pits and make it profitable again.

This actually pisses me off and makes me glad I switched brands when I did. OP, I just PM'd a link to this thread to "Martin CEO" through AT. I'll be checking back with interest to see what happens. On a side note, ... nevermind. Good luck with this.

Peachtree doors sold to another company and they would no longer honor the Peachtree warrantee... any company I were to make a major purchase from; I'd take into account their prospects for long term survival. Peachtree's was good at the time but ten years later they failed, so you can never be absolutely sure... you just make the best assessments at the time. The 'new' Martin has a lot to overcome; the 'old' Martin having just failed. A smooth transition from the 'old' to the 'new' almost has to include the burden of honoring the commitments the 'old' company made. I sure as heck will never buy another Peachtree company product, no matter who owns them now; nor, if I notice they are the parent company or an affiliated company with Peachtree, will I ever purchase from them. I despise Kohler for similar reasons; they sold a toilet, the kind with the pressure tank inside, that would and did blow up on occasion! Ours failed but didn't blow up and they offered no warrantee other than like Martin is doing here, 'pay us more and we'll sell you a cheaper item in replacement'... a regular tank for almost full retail for that 800 dollar piece of crap they'd already sold us. No thanks... got a TOTO so we'd never come home and find Kohler has dynamited our @#@$ house!
So, anyway, 'lifetime warranty' is a rather deceptive phrase, isn't it.... well, depending on what the meaning of the word 'is' is.... o
P.S. Oh, in this case please disregard the signature phrase below; I DO wish to besmirch these two awful companies, and to warn others of their business practices. Kohler and Peachtree, that is, not Martin, the 'new' Martin. Hope they get this handled.

Anything I may post is in no way meant to besmirch anyone or any entity in any way, so please don't take it, wrongly, as such. Thank You.
Am I the only wondering how a defective cam lasted 5 years then suddenly became warped?
