    Fortunately for some companies, they have such a good marketing plan, that they do not have to maintain a high level of quality to keep their large market shares.

    It amazes me that a company A can market their new limb as the "toughest" limb ever, and when they start snappin in half left and right, no one cares..... Now that is mega-marketing..... Not to mention putting plastic bushnigs in their cams.......and charging more for thier bows.... Thank God for blind devotion...

    I think I entered the archery scene at a time when Martin is moving back to the top. I know they used to be THE bow company of choice and I don't know what happened to them. I do know that some of the others are living on reputation alone and letting quality slip. Maybe that is what happened to Martin in the past. I know they aren't doing that now.

    I had to drive an hour to my nearest Martin "dealer". They didn't even have a Martin decal no the door, nor a single bow in the shop. Most of them are there to make money. They push what makes them the most money. I can't blame them for that, but just because the walls are covered with Company A and Company B, doesn't mean they make the greatest bow on earth....

    As far as selling in box stores. Reflex and Diamond are sold in box stores. There is a Mathews dealer at my local MC Sports which is a box store. Maybe Martin should just rename their lower end bows that sell in box stores to be like Hoyt and Bowtech. Or maybe they aren't ashamed of the fact that they sell a reasonably price bow to people that don't have a pro shop around.

    Without her, you wouldn't have anything bad to say about Martin.....

    JC if you dont mind I would like to save all these posts to a file on my computer.....so that when the next big thing comes along and you jump on that ship.....we can remind you of this......

    I can remember a time when you used to say the same thing about MATHEWS......

    I can respect your love of Martin, but what is wrong w/different brands being in the same house......

    MY problems w/Hoyt, Bowtech....have more to do w/the dealer than the actual companies.....and infact have nothing against the product them selves....

    that being said......I still think the Guardian and Commander may be the ugliest bows on the market.......but I think HUMMERS (the vehicle) are ugly also......NO OFFENCE.....

    Its all whats appealing to a person at the time.....right now, FORD has one of the quietest Deisels available......but I wont buy one because the cosmetics dont appeal to me.....

    now if you could put that engine in a Dodge, I would buy one in a HEARTBEAT... .......I like the look of the dodge......

    oh and the new chevy??? Man I thought that was supposed to be a MANS truck.....

    Didn't say they were crappy now either..... You like to put words in people's mouths don't you??

    Have you shot a Scepter IV, Pantera, or Slayer???? If not then what are you basing your non-sense on?

    Save away my friend. I didn't realize Martin was "the next big thing"....

    I used to say the same thing about Mathews. Their marketing works.....for a while....

    I really don't care what anyone shoots, if you like it shoot it, but I don't care for derogitory comments based on opinions passed off as facts...
