    I shoot with a couple guys that have bowtechs and both like my cheetah just as much as their bowtechs. My cheetah cost half of what their bows cost and I can out shoot them out to about 65 yards. I think for the price and quality I will never buy anything but a Martin. For me it is about accuracy and speed, My cheetah shoots 278 fps and the bowtechs guys i shoot with are at 277 and 278 fps. Again for half the price i will stick with my equipment. Hope you enjoy your bow no matter what you choose.

    Probably not,,but I have been shooting my friends bow who is the same drawlength as I am for a month or so. I have no trouble putting 5 arrows in the boiler room at the range.

    From what I can tell from the specs..the only differences I see is that the axle to axle length is 1/4in longer on the MOAB. And the Brace height a bit larger on the MOAB. What are the other differences?

    Well, as far as i know there's also a difference in the angle of the limbs and may be the strings - the Pro bows have better ones.On 2009 model there's also CCS and STS.
    2008 Martin MOAB - 45-60#, set at about 51-53# / 55#" Perfect Line" compound/ 55# Mongol horsebow/ 45# "Perfect Line" takedown recurve/ 45# Bearpaw Grizzly hunter recurve/ 55# Samick Longbow Cheetah ... and several homemade bows

    So does this make the MOAB shoot better,is it a better bow in general?

    I haven't shot the Bengal, but have read posts here saying the MOAB is smoother bow and i really like mine. I can only suggest to try them both and find which one suits you better Good luck!

    Yeah well that`s the trouble here in NY,dealers don`t set up a bow for people to try out. These guys expect you to somehow just know if your`e going to like it after you buy it.

    The way I got to shoot the Bengal and a few other brands was asking people who I didn`t even know, to shoot their bow. Fortunately,all of them said yes,but I don`t think I am going to run into anyone shooting a MOAB at the ranges I frequent. Lots of Matthews and Hoyt`s with some Bowtechs mixed in.

    More money than brains?? Follow the leader instead of being one, maybe?

    That's what i did when bought my MOAB, but luckily it is a hell of a bow and for almost a year it has caused no problems. My advice is to take the risk-don't know what's the difference in price, but it can't be very big.
