I'm sorta new to bowhunting, I've always had a bow, but it was more just for fun. Now it's time for a new bow to replace my 20 year old (and REALLY loud) PSE since I want to get into the actual hunting part. I'm kinda stuck between two bows: the Fred Bear Instinct and the Martin Bengal. I'm wanting to spend around $400 on the bow alone. I've checked out both websites, and as far as I can tell, these two bows are fairly comparable in terms of specs. the Bear is 31" vs. the 32" on the Martin. I want a 28-31" draw length adjustment with 60-70# draw weight. I've heard nothing but good things about the Fred Bear Instinct, I've shot it, it feels good, it looks good, it's quiet, etc. Not one review said they regret buying it. I really like this particular bow, mainly the draw length adjustment modules. My only gripe is the absence of a threaded hole for the STS on the rear of the riser. Does anyone know if the Instinct has a one-piece riser? I haven't seen all that many reviews on the Bengal, but most were good. I've never actually seen one since the closest dealer is on the other side of town. Although, I don't care for the 3-piece riser. Anyone have any experience with this bow? I will probably end up getting the Bear since it has a shorter ATA length and it's just a great bow for the price from what I've read. I will be shooting with a release, so nock pinch is not a factor. Any experience with customer service from either company? I'm sure I will have more questions as the day wears on.
