    Ok, I'm jealous. Mine's a 92 Ford with 196,000 miles on it. lol Still kinda runs though. lol when I was younger, I fell into the "new is better" group. I was shooting a new Mathews MQ32 back then. Took 2 men and a mule to pull the thing back, but hey, it was new and expensive! Now, I shoot only Martin/Rytera. Faster, smoother, more accurate, and yes, less expensive. I prefer to put the extra money in the bank, instead of in a bow. I say, let people say whatever they want. Once they can outshoot me, I'll listen.

    As it stands right now I probably won't have anything other than Martin unless I win another brand or it is a gift.I am a pleased Martin customer.I also will not spend the cash for the most advertised bows,when my Martin's will do the same.They shoot better than I doanyway and the Martin customer is just great.Okay, I am through now- lol

    Default Martin Bows

    Some years back Hoyt, Mathews and Bowtech grabbed the spotlight and Martin was sort of forgotten. Martin PR wasn't up to par or something. I mean, Martin shooter Sally Wunderle has been Women's National Champion more times that I can remember, 17 or 18 times. Shoulder problems aways back, college and then married Sally (Wunderle) Robie nailed down 2nd in the recent Presley's Midwest Open behind one the nation's, if not world's, top female shooter Jamie Van Natta. Martin has had the World spotlight more than a couple times with World Cup wins and won Vegas not to long ago, Barnsdale and him using skinny arrows to boot. Alas, I never got to shoot the once crown of Martin, the Scepter.
    I often wonder if Martin receives some royalties as many current archery items stems from past Martin archery concepts. You have to look in Archery History.com. Martin is sort of like Darton. Many companies have to or have had to pay Darton for the half breed cam system. Martin evaded the Allen patient way back when by pulling the KamAct, but archery lost one of the most innovative bows to ever arise. Others suffered in court. Allen died in a car crash when in legalities. His family received mucho bucks.
    Prior to 2009 Martin had questionable strings that didn't help and the looks of the Gold Series risers were rather lack luster, but they could shoot with the best. I don't think it was so much string durability, but custom strings having less stretch and peep rotation. Okay, the new kids had come on the block and lacked knowledge of what it takes for strings to work in. Many of us knew some strings took a few hundred shots, even a 1000 before they settled in, stretching ceased, and peep rotation held and then these same strings would go on to give owner several thousand shots.
    Today, say 2009 and going into 2011, Martin/Rytera has some outstanding bows that are catching eyes. Perhaps I would example myself. For 10 years I shot Hoyt bows and then I shot a Martin Shadowcat. I am considering another Shadowcat and tempted by the Onza 3 and then the Alien Z and Nemesis has my attention and then I have to say I am not a short ata bow lover.

    Passing note; Has anyone looked up the word, Nemesis? I sort of like it and maybe it needs pushed. Save you the trouble; unbeatable opponent: a bitter enemy, especially one who seems unbeatable.

    Love my Black Ice...then I got a Marquis and loved that (both Diamonds)then I got a Brigadier (Bow Tech)...then I got a used 2010 Shadowcat.
    I don't think I'll need to bow shop for quite a while.

    Sonny, I like my Alien Z, but I'm pretty sure my 2011 bow is going to be a Nemisis. Given my short draw there are only so many options and this seems like the best one for now. My biggest obstacle is picking the color. I've heard the black is like the 2010 Carbon fiber look and I have that color.
