    Ya got my 2 cents in on that post too......But what gets me is some of these people over their think that AT represents every archer there is.So ten people have limb failures on AT well then martin must be going out of business or a couple of people have a bad CS moment so it is awful.
    What about the thousands of happy customers around the world.they dont count.
    I usually dont comment on those threads but some just get my goat....

    What strikes me as funny on AT is the classifieds. Granted, the "Big 3" Bow manufaturers have more bows out there than Martin, but I don't think it's as high of a percentage as there are bows of their brands for sale. When you see a Martin or Rytera for sale, it usually sells pretty fast. The others seem to be for sale for a lot longer time, and so many more of them for sale. Just wondering how a "second rate bow company" (not MY words) has such a fast resale time. Not to mention how many of the guys that own one of the "big 3" end up buying Martins.

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    Hey Guys,
    After reading this string I went over to AT and read the string that all of you are referring to. I go under a different name over there, but I, too, had to write in defense of Martin. I was very frustrated last year when one of the two Martins that I bought failed....my Warthog and it's limbs went south until Martin, without complaint, replace them, the cams, the string and the cables. Now it seems to be as healthy as the Bengal that I bought. I also bought a Hoyt last year, and I must be the most unlucky guy around because it had a catastrophic failure....in front of several witnesses with whom I was shooting. Hoyt did NOT want to repair the newly purchased bow. Am I happy about the Martin failure....no way, but they did their best to make it right. Will I buy a Martin in the future....absolutely. Frankly, both Martins had a finish that would easliy rival the Hoyt and was perhaps even better. Honestly, I paid as much for the Warthog as I did for the Hoyt...the difference....my Warthog is still shooting. Anyway, I know that you guys don't need to be told that the AT string is full of hot air...but my story strongly indicates which of those two companies actually stand behind their products...and I'm certainly not going to go on this forum or AT's and bash Hoyt. Anyway, sorry for the ramble. Take good care, all.

    Hey guys,
    It's been a while for me as well...I have gotten out of the Martion loop over here, and I sure miss it...I go by a different name on AT as well...I shoot Hoyt right now, not my first choice, but my local shop gave me my big break and decided to sponsor me...I ended up selling my Martin Firecat, however Im looking ever so closely at finding another one to hunt with, I missed that bow soo much...Dont get me wrong, I love my Hoyt, but that Martin had a certain feel to it and I miss it...I will be continuing to shoot as a "Hoyt Staffer" however I plan on buying a Martin for hunting

    im going to put in my 2 cents, i have a slayer and it is awesome i love to shoot it, never had a problem with it or my dreamcatcher. try finding a slayer or dreamcatcher for sale anywhere on at or ebay. but go looking for a bowtech, hoyt,pse, matthews or the like, there everywhere! the guys at my pro shop talked to a matthews rep. who told them in meetings they are not permitted to bring up any topic from AT or anything they have read from AT. i love this sight you all are very supportive it seems like some of you have been there done that so your direction is sought after. thanks i no longer go to AT as there is not alot about martin that i care to read.

    lol maybe, I just miss that Firecat soo much...ya it had to get warranty limbs a few months after I bought it, but it was a dream to shoot!!! the person i sold it to is getting a crossbow next year, as regular bows are just too hard on his shoulder now...I plan on buying that bow back for hunting, it was fast, quiet, light, and I could tune that bow any which way I wanted
