Just wanted to say hello to everyone, as I've just joined you from over the pond in England.
Started reading this forum to try and get an insight into which new Martin compound to go for, and I've got my eyes on a '07 Cougar with Nitrous cams, partly because I just love the spec and the look of them, and with the Elite limbs have the axle length for fingers.
Anyway, back to the title, ie, reliability, I have been shooting a '94 Firecat for the last 14 years, and have shot well over 40,000 arrows from it. It has not slowed down at all, and even has the original string and cables still on it.
Needless to say, whatever bow I get will be a Martin, (although I am a bit nervous reading all these posts about cracking limbs - I hope they haven't let their quality control slide!).
