    Default Does anyone from Martin come here?

    Has anyone seen anybody from the new Martin here on the forum?
    They sure are busy on facebook promoting the heck out of Chris Brackett and a few others that are shooting comps.
    They are always asking questions about this and that, and when people answer they never reply, just wondering if they really care?
    One would think if they wanted any kind of feedback they might pop in here once in a while to see whats going on.

    In all the years (9 of them) I've been a member of this forum the only factory person I can remember getting on here was Joel Clark and not often for him till the very end of Martin being near.

    I've always been rather supprized that Martin didn't keep much ( if any ) presence here on this board. All sorts of feedback here!

    You're right. Not that we know it all, but if they paid attention to some of the suggestions on here most of their quality problems would be a thing of the past. I know they are addressing some of them, but there are a slew of good ideas that come from the members here.

    that's pretty well said coming from someone who is investing in martins products , and glad to see you in support for martin and their recent efforts . im sure they are savvy enough to realize that if when needed, this forum is a resource of ideas,info etc from its members , and if any of these ideas,info will translate into better products , that are still cost efficient, or ways to keep old customers satisfied while attracting new ones they'll jump on it. how many hours managment spends or doesnt spend on stupid face book isn't a very viable indicator of whether they are heading the "right direction" . I'd much rather a CEO be involved in the plant or engineering room etc vs posting polls on social media on how to run their company and saying hi to everyone daily.

    Martin, 'new' or 'old' would go a long ways before they found a more loyal customer base than most here. I don't think anyone here wants to sit down with their engineers to design new cams and such; just want a chance to offer ideas which might HELP Martin, be it CS improvements or bow lengths, ect, ect. These good folks BUY Martin bows; most, it seems, have for years and years, so might just accidently have ideas to offer as to WHY. These are Martin's return customers. They don't wish to compete with Martin in the market place. They would just like to help Martin back ito competing in the market place!

    Wow! I finally remember that word a Canadian friend of mine used to use; 'Snarky' it was!! Maybe my memory is... is... is what? Best, all... o
    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.
