    I got a silencer about a week and a half ago and love it. It is light, fast, accurate, smooth and has hardly any vibration with nothing on it. This is a bow that is flying under the radar for some reason. The TRG and SOS are really cool innovations and work great! You would not be disappointed if you bought the bow. For the price tag on it, you get a lot of bow for what you pay. It is just an unbelievable bow from top to bottom.

    The draw cycle is smooth and it has a real solid back wall. As far as the grip, I like it a lot. it is comfortable in the hand and has a nice feel to it. Not to sure why you don't hear all that much about this bow. To tell you the truth, it seems as though all martin bows fly under the radar and dont get the recognition they deserve. Everyone gets caught up in the "popular" names such as mathews, hoyt, bowtech and such. But martin has the best customer service on the market. You should find a dealer near you and shoot the silencer. If they dont have the silencer, then shoot the firecat 400 because they are the exact same bow except for the claw deals on the riser.

    Not exactly, there are a few differences, like the 1 1/4" difference in A2A or the .2 of a lb differnce is mass weight, and I'm sure there is a difference on the price tag. But pretty much the same.

    I took my silencer into the local pro shop and hung it up right next to the FC400 and you couldn't tell the difference in the ATA at all with the naked eye. It is so minute that you might as well pull out a tape measure. Thats how identical these two bows are. And the .2lbs comes from the cat looking claws on the riser.

    I got this new silencer bow about a month ago. I bought it for several reasons. The bow is made in Washington where I live (support local companies). I've heard great things about their customer service, and the stats on the bow rock, especially when you factor in the price. It's amazing how flat and fast these arrows fly. I shoot 29 inch draw at 60 lbs with arrows weighing 374 grs. These things flat out move. I've got about 1000 shots thru mine now, and other than having to tighten up loose screws a couple times during the first 200 shots, I've had no issues. The draw is very smooth and is quiet as well. I've been shooting along side guys with Mathews and G5 bows costing twice what mine did, and am not at any disadvantage. VERY GOOD BOW!!

    I have not yet. I just dug out the croney to take to the range for rifle work. I will shoot a couple of arrows over it in the back yard tonight and let you know.

    Just got done with the croney..... And the answer is...... Out of twenty shots recorded I had a low of 185 and high of 194. I was expecting a little more like 300 to 310. How did you come up with your estimate rock? Still extremely happy with my new Silencer.
