I was pissed, big high to big low. Oh well I called Martin and got a RA# and sent the bow back. Took awhile shipping, customs, Xmas etc. but I finally got the bow back and am really happy. Martin upgraded the string to the new green and black one on the 2011 bows. They also put on a new idler wheel. So that eased the pain of being bowless for awhile. Thanks Martin. Cheers Roscoe
My friend bought a Firecat last year and he has the same issue. He took it back to the Martin dealership and they fix the problem in no time. The cam had a very sharp edge and lead to one side. I hope Martin will improve their quality control and stopping these type of human error on their products.
