    I remember the old Mach III, only around 6.5lbs/hp and one of the few factory bikes to break the 13 sec quarter.
    It was a bit too much bike for this young kid back then.
    Things sure have changed since those days. My current Husky TE510 dirt bike is only 7-8hp down from that old Kawi, putting it about 5lbs/hp

    Default Which Bow?

    Yes, the RD was a 2 cylinder - I worked/rode for a Yamaha dealer for about 4 years. (Better get this back to archery) And my racers would just fly and ever so often would nail a bale of straw (groan).

    Not alot of Martin shooters around here either. Only two shops anywhere near that carry them. One is a garage shop, great owner, been here a long long time and was an Olympic archer back in the late 40's/50's. Not alot of people know about him or are turned off by the shop being his garage. The other Pro Series shop only carries a few new Martins, if any, and will be the first to steer you to an other brand.
    The Sportsmans Warehouse in Colorado Springs carries Gold line and usually has 3 or 4 models on hand and the Dicks only ever has a couple year old models.
    Actually there are quite a few people around that shoot older Martins but they just hunt, arn't really involved in the archery community and either do their own work or just shoot'em as is...

    I guess I must have deleted my own post last night. Maybe I PM'd it. How about Baker's Archery Supply in Halifax. Try a call to Jeff Roe at 717-571-9872. He's the regional sales rep and certainly should know who his dealers are.

    Thanks for the replies. I called Bakers and they don't have any in stock. I'll call Jeff Roe and see what he has to say. I work sometimes at Durabond Pipe in Steelton. We did some work on their presses. Good fishing in the river there. Take care and thanks for the help. PaLuke

    That's cool. I know Durabond well. I worked at Beth Steel for 29 years and then retired in Jan 2003 at 55 1/2 years old. The pipe mill was owned and operated by BS at the time. I filled in there a few times. I only live about two miles from there.

    Fishing isn't as good as it used to be, but still beats working.
