    As far as I know, the Scepter is the only true one piece riser Martin has right now...However, its been proven now that their three piece risers are structurally sound...at least on their shorter bows it seemed...overall, very impressive. That Bengal looks sweet with the flo. green roto cups...if only the cams were that color too

    NICE! I take it the Cougar replaced the Firecat? Looks like all they did was move the dampener i the riser. I like the carbon. Sweet bows!

    2012 Line......wow, impressed again!
    I have to say that the 2012 line looks very good.....My first impression is, okay i think Martin has finally recognized that if they don't hit a homerun for 2012 that there going to be in worse trouble than they already are in the eyes of many! So when i flipped thru the pages, i said yes! they are really trying here.

    The only thing i was dissappointed with was the grip still.....
    I can't believe they still have it......
    If you hunt in cold weather as does many, that grip is freakin cold....
    The two warmest grips that i have ever had and didn't have to wrap tourney wrap around were my mathews outback (woodgrip) and my Bear Truth 2 with that synthetic grip......they were exceptionally warmer!!!
    I wish they would take a serious look at that grip. I haven't heard one good comment about it....
    I couldn't shoot accurately with it......The curve needs to go.....Make it a warmer type....it's get cold in michigan u know!

    The other concern is....will they actually do their advertised speed. I really hate when bow companys give you a range of speed, example 320-330 ? I know this Parker, Mathews, and my diamond black ice are within 2-3 fps of their claims....to me that is very acceptable. But after owning a few bengals and a firecat, the speeds weren't even close. I hope your reading this Terry Martin or whoever. You have a tremendous ability for 2012 and 2013 to right the ship, because from where i'm sitting and often reading on Archery Talk and talking to my local Dealer in West Michigan, you guys are really headed in a direction with your company and the way the public perceives Martin as a compentent bow maker that will not be financially healthy. I know I have said this many times, i will not own a martin again, and i don't. I would like to and i will say that this 2012 line up get me a little closer. A few things have to happen for me to come back. Be able to accept the grip and the speeds have to be legit! & the bows have to be very quiet. The quality control problem with the limbs I would have to think are behind you guys. I really like the past / extreme parrallel limbs (god do i hope they hold up) and the new cam looks great!

    the Prowler looks the best to me! I wonder what the bare bow price will be.

    Junior bow......I think your missing the boat on a junior bow like the bear apprentice or the parker sidekick extreme....

    All in all I think you really stepped up (on paper atleast) I know you didn't have a choice. We will find out in the field and in the shop.

    In a nut shell........Good Job!!!!! You have me looking your way again.

    Is the cam on the Septer V a binary style cam? Is there some cam lean issues with this cam? I wish they would make that a binary 3 track shoot thru system. It would solve any cam lean problems and my problem of which bow to buy.

    I have 2 2010 Shadowcats and they don't have any cam lean, or have I heard of any. I don't see how they could have any.

    Well after last year I was disappointed and I've been looking at other companies for this coming year. After seeing the new line upI'm changing my mind Seems like they stepped it up for this year. I'm liking the Cougar. Also like the Onza and it now goes down below 27-1/2" draw so I'll be looking at it as well
