    NO, I was thinking Mathews. Martin is THE bow. Mathews is the other M bow.

    Maybe Martin should advertise as "The Original "M" Brand Bow"..... I used to shoot a Mathews, but I'll never go back to them after shooting Martin. Yes, I was a sucker for the advertising once.....bad me...shame shame....

    I know this post is old, and you'll probably want to shoot me for this question. But, what is so wrong with the "B" Bow? I shot a bear bow when I 1st started shooting. It was an old Black Panther. I never had any issues with it, and upgraded to the Cougar Elite. But, why such a bad taste in the mouths on this post?

    The "B" spoke of probably was Bowtech, not Bear. Still, there wasn't so much "bad mouthing" of bows as there was of cost. And it is aggravating, trying to get some one new to archery involved when the cost can be outrageous.

    Wife and I both bought 2010 Bengals from The Bow Depot in northern Colorado. The shop owner Doug wasn't pushy about what brand for us to buy. He showed us matching Bengals and we decided that they were comfortable and his words were "they make an excellent beginner bow." So we ended up buying them and have truely enjoyed having them. Over this past year of owning them, our shooting skills have improved greatly and we are extremely happy for buying them. One our biggest reasons for buying new and not used was warrenty, but at the price we bought them for, the bows were still cheaper then the quest and pses he had for sale.

    Good choice. Of the ones I've set up and owners shooting the Bengal is one darn good bow for the cost. I could say more bow than what the cost reflects.

    I apologize. I read fast and saw the **** and kept reading and saw the B. Now I realize my mistake. Archery can get expensive, but it doesn't have to be. If they want to spend that kind of money, its their fault. I'll shoot what I can afford, and shoot it great!

    I think alot of new archers get turned off the sport when they purchase
    some of the most unforgiving bows made and wonder why they can't hit anything,and end frustrated and give up on it.Only good thing is you see alot of good deals on barely used bows.
