    I really appreciate all the input. And I did finish reading that thread on AT. Boy there sure are a lot of opinionated folks over there. I have to say that over the years I've owned a few other brand bows besides my Martin.......Jennings, Darton, Bear. Nothing glaring ever stood out with the quality. The only complaint that comes to mind was a Jennings Buckmaster 2000. The flim dip was missing in a few spots. Bear/Jenning offered to redip it for me but I just used a permanent marker. The bow shot great. Pretty forgiving. I couldn't shoot my Darton to save my life so I sold it. I guess it just didn't fit me but it was nicely made so I can't bash it for my lack of shooting form....lol. All in all I think the manufacturers produce a decent product. All mechanical things can have issues.

    The NAP 360 is a decent package rest, just make sure the nock point is set correctly or it will wear the arrow support pretty quick. For a single cam bow, the Trophy Taker Pronghorn SL is a very good, well made, simple drop away that is relatively inexpensive.

    OK Guys.......Ordered my Exile package this morning from Bowzmart. They even throw in a free Plano hard bow case and with free shipping, I consider that quite a deal for $399.00. Polaris, you'll be first on my list for unwanted archery accessories
