It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle: when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.

    Ok, nice to see Martin making quality hires. Can we expect to see quality hires in the bow design department?? That's more important to me as a archery consumer than how you market your products.

    Hey guys. I'm new to this site...I just bought a Martin saber takedown and a saber Compound 2006 in mint-shot cost: 480.00. Did I get burned? The takedown is new. In addition, can you give a rundown on the pros n cons of each model? Thanks.

    So, my question about Martin now... What models/model lines represent the new regime in reference to design, quality control, improved engineering etc.? Are we already seeing them in the models available today on store hooks? Or, are we waiting for new models to usher in the "new era" in Martin?
