    Default martin bows

    just went to AT and looked at hunting bows. had to go 7 pages before i saw the first martin for sale and it was an "03 jaguar. imop that shows that once you own a martin it's hard to want anything else. seems to me they found out they spent way too much money for a lot of hype. i'm sure they're good bows but come on 8-900.00 for a bare bow. any other thoughts.

    I too out of curiosity went to the classifieds to check out Martin bows for sale. I didn't find very many. A lot of Mathews and Hoyts and many in between but not many Martins. That gave me a good feeling of purchasing a Martin bow this year.

    I've noticed the same thing at times. Seems to me you guys have your heads screwed on right. As for prices? How many think paying $1700 for a new Matrix is going to make you a professional quality archer right off the bat?

    I shot a lot of bows before buying my 09 Bengal last month. I kept looking for a reason to spend the extra money on hoyt,pse,mathews,or bowtech and couldn't find a reason. Glad I found Martin. Great bows at Great prices.

    Bet not. Never seen any bad reviews of Martins' on AT. There are just to many fanboys out there that think they need to spend the big bucks to get something good. It makes them feel all warm and fuzzy when they say, "yeah I only shoot a Mathews". Catch us if you can??, well boys you have been caught, weighed, measured, and thrown you back.
