hello, i am new to the martin archery world, i am a previous hoyt user, but recently, switched to a martin cheetah. i usually shoot more expensive bows but i really lked the way this bow shot, and felt. Made in america, and full lifetime warranty. i have realized lately that alot of people shoot certain bows because of the name that is on them and really dont take the time to read and shoot all the brands that dont have the hype behind them. so i just wanted to say thanks to martin for making an amazing product for the new working class economy. keep it up, and thank you.
