    Chris Brackett, World Renowned Archer and Bowhunter, Signs with Martin Archery

    Walla Walla, WA – January 31, 2014: Martin Archery announced today the signing of Chris Brackett to a multi-year contract. Effective immediately, Chris will exclusively shoot Martin Archery bows, including on his Outdoor Channel television shows “Fear No Evil” and “Arrow Affliction.” In addition, Chris will be licensing his Fear No Evil brand to Martin for use on their products.

    “I was a free agent and vowed to take a hard look at all the bow companies out there and really understand who was behind them, what products they had in their line-up and most importantly, who had the most potential,” said Chris. “Martin was founded over 60 years ago by one of the greatest archers in history and they are an amazing and storied brand that we all know, our parents all know and our grandparents all know. When I heard they were looking for a new brand ambassador and wanted input from a blue collar, hard-working man who knows bows and how to make arrows dance, I knew that Martin was the company for me.”

    “I couldn’t be more excited to announce the signing of Chris Brackett to the Martin Family,” said Rich Weatherford, Chief Executive Officer of Martin Archery. “Chris embodies the same values and direction that Martin Archery does. As an established brand known for quality, passion and innovation, we are excited to be able partner with Chris. It truly is a partnership as Chris values our ability to produce quality products and we value Chris’ ability to bring excitement and fun to the archery industry. Booyah!”

    Chris Brackett is the creator, executive producer and host of the award-nominated “Fear No Evil” and award-winning “Arrow Affliction” shows on Outdoor Channel, America’s Leader in Outdoor TV. He is not only an ambassador within the archery community, but also in the broader public arena as he has been featured in media outlets, including CBS with Katie Couric, MSN, CNN, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune and Spike TV, among others.

    “In addition to being one of the best bowhunters and most accurate archers in the world, Chris represents what the Martin brand has become known for over the years,” said Martin Archery Director of Marketing Joseph Lok. “Martin is known for designing and manufacturing high quality bows that the everyman can shoot and grow with.”

    “Martin definitely makes some top-of-the-line shooting machines that you or I can count on day in and day out, whether out in the hunting fields or on the competition line,” added Chris. “I urge you to go and shoot one of these bows and you will not be disappointed. I am proud to say I FEAR NO EVIL and I shoot MARTIN!”

    In addition to shooting Martin Archery bows, Chris works with other sponsors including Mossy Oak, Scent-Lok, Muddy Outdoors, Lumenok, and Rage Broadheads.

    Good for Chris...hope it works out for Martin...

    Bottom line is money talks, if Martin wants to give Chris enough $$$$ in get him to sign, then good for both parties....you should buy your equipment based on what YOU think is best for you and not just because so and so shoots or endorses the product...sometimes it works against the manufacture..case in point: I refuse to buy anything that has BONE COLLECTOR on it...why---nothing against "the brotherhood" in fact I like all three of those guys..however by putting BONE COLLECTOR on a product it increases the cost and does not increase the quality...adds a goofy antler skull all djust an additional cost to the consumer into the brotherhoods pocket...on the flipside someone is not going buy a martin cuz they wont like Chris sideburns...

    Welcome back Rodney....ROFL

    Not sure if this is good news or Martin or not. I would personally never have Chris Brackett as my lead advertiser. He has a raucous following so he will probably sell them some bows but I know I will not support Martin having him as the face of their company. Heck he is banned from AT for bad behavior and now he is representing the company that once belonged to the owners of AT. What a tangled web.....

    Wow. A lot of hate for the guy. I have always liked his show. And he was pretty cool to me and my son when we met him. I think it's a good move for both Martin and Chris. Good way for Martin to spread the word on their bows. And a rock solid piece of equipment for Chris to make em bleed.

    AT'S hate for Chris runs deep but, AT is a small population of archers. The guy has a lot of fans outside of AT.

    I had a feeling when diamond and Brackett parted ways that Martin would pick him up.
