Why do you not see more Martins at 3d shoots than you do? I shoot a few ASA's a year and most of the time can count the number of Martins that I see on one hand.
Because only the really SMART people shoot Martin..
Was that my outside voice?
Because most 3-D shooters are hunters, and with Mathews's advertizing that's all you are going to see. Plus the other bow companies droped a lot of the lesser known shooters and they were picked up by Mathews. So it seems as thought everybody is shooting Mathews.
Don't know about anywhere else,but in NZ most of the really good shooters get Hoyt bows almost given to them by the main hoyt dealer here.
It doesn't bother the shooters what they shoot, so if some dealer offers them an almost free bow,most of them will take it.
They don't shoot any better than they would with any other brand,but the dealer gets to say "hoyt wins more"
I have a friend that shoots a Hoyt at 3D to keep the dealer that gave it to him happy,but he still shoots his Martin recurve in the bush.
Go figure huh !!
I would definately agree with that......same way here.

I myself will be at the ASA shoots and several more Martin shooters will also. They are great bows and preform well at 3D, Spots and Field. Along with making great hunting bows! With the cam systems available on the Martin/Rytera lines of bows. You basically can have a bow built to do just about anything extremely well!!!
and most of them don't like shooting in the rain.....There i go again speaking when I'm thinking.....

I think to many people follow the heard ,they don't know what to buy, don't try different bows, they go in to a pro shop with an opinion from a friend and don't try other brands out . I have been in a buch of shops were someone will come in with a friend and pick bows of for them bashing brands that they have never owned or shot. Then that mentality gets passed on .
I for one started with a Martin and tryed several "other" company's and have always come bacK to Martin. I may not have the most popular bow at our local shoots but I don't seem to have a problem beating the others just about every week
