    Default Cheetah Bow Model? SN 0669768

    I just bought a used Cheetah bow but cannot tell the manufacture date and lack any other documentation.

    The tag on the bow reads:
    weight 55-70#
    Draw: MP"
    Bow: 0669768
    Let Off: H
    Shoot: 87.5
    Split 35.75


    I am a first time bow hunter and any help determining anything about this bow is appreciated. It doesn't have the "lightening" holes that I see in the new model cheetahs but it does have the cheetah "inset" picture on the bow itself so maybe this is a different cheetah model?

    I appreciate any input.

    My goal would be to have the correct manual and ID for the bow. Not sure what all the stuff on the tag means, too.

    I could be wrong, but I would say it is a 06 model. I say this because of the 06 in the begining of the serial number.

    See if we can help:

    55-70 is the weight range adjustablity
    0669768....06 is the year of manufacture (ID?). 69768 is serial #.
    MP means MPro cam
    Letoff---H means High/80%
    Shoot....87.5"......... length of the string
    Split....37.75.........length of the cable

    You shouldn't have any trouble with a manual. The manual for all the bows made that year is the same. It has information about every cam system and general info about their bows. Check Martin's website or any dealer should have one.

    If you check Martin's website try going to the 2007 catalog, page 22-23. The Cheetah wasn't offered in 2006 so you probably have an early 2007 model.

    Hopefully I have given you the right information for your particular bow. Can you post a picture to confirm?

    Default So is it an early 07 Cheetah model?

    So is it an early 07 Cheetah model?

    Now that you have the pictures can you say with reasonable certainty that this is, in fact, an early 2007 version of the Cheetah?

    Thanks for your help. It is so cool to get this kind of enthusiastic response so quickly.

    Default It does'nt say Cheetah anywhere...

    It doesn't say Cheetah anywhere... There is no indication of a model on this bow that I can see. I'm just assuming that the picture of the animal is a cheetah (but I always tell the people at work never assume anything).


    Anybody shed any light if there are bows with no names (models)?
