    Default Which Bow?

    Hello everyone, I'm new to the site and need help picking out a bow and finding a local dealer. I now shoot a Hoyt 737 and I'm thinking about a Onza 3. Does anyone have one of these bows and what are your opinions on it. I live in South Eastern Pa. And can't find a dealer with Martins in stock. I checked the dealer list on the site and no one seems to carry a selection of Martins. Any direction would be appreciated. Thanks for the replies. PaLuke

    Default Which Bow?

    Hi there, PaLuke. See link below. Long time Hoyt lover here, but never could come to love the 737. Everyone said it was the older UltraTec, but ain't no way, not after I've owned 11 of them from 2000 forward.

    Onza 3 is a surpriser. It's listed under the Gold series, but every bit a Pro series bow.

    Keep a eye open here and someone will find you a dealer.

    Thank you for the replies, I want to shoot one of the Martins and must admit I've never shot one. It seems nobody really shoots them around here. It's either Hoyt's , Bowtech or Mathews. Everything I've read about the Martins is always positive so this is what spurred the interest. I live in Schuylkill county and would appreciate pointing me in the right direction to a dealer. Do a lot of people shoot Martins where you live? Thanks for the replies.

    Yeah, it probably has something to do with the name of this forum.

    They don't know what they are missing. In fact its all about fad's and money. Martin bows are not as expensive but the are as good if not better. I have owned only martin and have many others come through the shop. And I am still not impressed. That is why we are a martin family.

    Generally same bows in my area, probably more of the Diamond bows than actual Bowtech labeled. Also see a couple Elite Bows around.

    No.
    I was at a 3D bowshoot last month, with another 150-160 people and appeared I had the only Martin bow in the place.
    Last year at the 5 or so 3D shoots I went to, I remember seeing two others with Martins.

    Used to be more around here, but the dealer I went to for bows is long gone and the one shop in town that was most recently listed as a Pro Series dealer apparently isn't anymore or at least rarely has a Martin bow
