    Since this was first posted back in Dec 09, the Threshold has proved to be a lot of bow for the begining archer, and most report that they are very pleased with the purchase. In your case, it sounds that your anchoring kinda high, move you anchor point down some, and you'll find that you'll have an inproved sight range.

    Wow! new guys coming outta the woodwork. lol welcome to all of you. i dont have any experience with the Threshold. i doubt it's complete crap as stated,but neither is it top of the line. it is an entry level bow. something to get started in this great sport w/o breaking the bank. as long as the shooter does their part,the bow will kill deer. its not a parallel limb design,so it will be louder and have noticeable hand shock compared to higher end bow. there are plenty of products on the market that will take care of the bulk of the noise. look at limbsavers and bowjacks and the limbsavers stabilizers to start if you feel the need to quiet it down. also,a heavier arrow will absorb some of the energy making it quieter also.

    find a good pro shop that's a Martin dealer and ask if they have any 2010 Martins in stock. if so,you may be able to get a higher end bow for less $$. they will usually deal on the price to make room for the newer models. specifically,a Cheetah or Exile(same bow,different name). alot of members shoot these and will tell you,they're an excellent bow at a good price. i chose a Cheetah over newer Hoyts. it shot just as nice for 1/4 the price of a big name bow.

    if you need help setting the bows up,feel free to ask any questions you have. Martin bows can be worked on completely without a bowpress. with our help,you can be your own bow tech. Martin's customer service is THE best in the archery business if you ever need them. unfortunately,though,the CS department doesn't monitor the forums. so any issues you have as far as warranty work will require a phone call directly to Martin.

    this is a very helpful sight and the guys here are very cool and laid back. that's the way we like it and as long as you're respectful and keep attitudes in check,all is well.

    welcome to the forum.are you new to archery?do you know how to tune a bow?is this your first martin?

    so you have your self a bow that is really ment for the first time archer,and yes it can be tuned to shoot great.infact it will shoot better then anyone who gets behind the bow,take some time to ask questions about tuning your bow in a new thread and we can get you shooting it.or worst case throw it up on the classifieds here or on archerytalk(i bet your a member there) and get a bow that fits you.

    i do have a question,did you shoot the bow befor you bought it.all you problems should have been noticed if you shot befor you bought.

    again welcome to the forum.we are a bunch of goood ol boys itching to help a guy out.best of luck to you and happy shooting.

    No i did not shoot it first i bought it offline the bow has been tuned but still shoots like crab it is only shooting about 30 yards flat out i can adjust the sight all the way down at the anchor point and put the bottom pin all the way down and at 40 yards the arrow hits the ground 5 yards before the target at a loss of words for how disappointed i am in this bow

    First mistake imo. Find it hard to believe that you would have to adjust the sight that much, ever think that your center-shot was off or that it wasn't set up properly from the start?

    Other part of all of this, if you were that unhappy, what is the point in coming back 3 months later to dig up this post? And going off the first part, I'm going to put my money down that it is operator error and not the bow. This is where I'm going to get a little defensive in that this isn't a place for trolls. If you want to try to stir up drama and bash the company who's forum this belongs to - do that else where. Everyone is here to help and share what they know and learn what they don't.

    Digger asked questions specific to you that when unanswered until today where you come back for this? Really?

    Or, you could'a used that $100 and got a 2011 Ridge Hunter, Firecat, Bengal, or possibly a Pantera online. I watched a new (in box) 2010 Cheetah go for $174 + free shipping, yesterday on ebay. Take a deep breath, and start tinkerin with it rather than flame your choice. It's a good bow for the price if you give it a chance. You may want of move your peep one way or the other to help with the sight issue.

    Members have been trying to help you out here but you seem to not want the assistance. We would gladly try to help you . Post some pics, the gear your using so that we can try and help you. Post a picture of the peep, rest, etc. Right now it just seems that your trolling. We can't help you unless you want the help.

    p.s. I removed foul language in your post.
