    Why is it necessary to state that someone crawled out from under a rock?

    What?

    This is sad, I had a couple of the original 2010's and those things were silky smooth shooters and the retribution was the last bow I ever robin hooded with

    I don't think anyone knows yet but it's possible maitland could still design the bows and someone else manages the business aspect. If I had any say so in Martin archery I'd try to hire this guy.

    No I did not crawl out from under a rock. Jen told me a month ago Rob shipped my limbs...that day. Still not here.

    I have been curious about Maitland's fate also. Hopefully someone out there knows something and will share the info.

    Yes the reply was uncalled for. I have tried to help as many people on here as I can. I think the goals of ArcheryTalk should be to HELP others, to learn, and to share experiences. Negative bashing is really prevalent on here and I hope it can stop.

    Back to the subject...We know the business was sold...but most don't know who bought it, if Rob still works there, or if we can get parts at all.

    My comment was not to offend, but obviously did. I apologize.

    The question surprised me considering there is a 6 page thread on the Maitland brand specific page about the company being sold.


    hey...at least I didn't bash Bowtech or Mathews! ( that was a JOKE people!!!!)

    Well said? Seriously? Anything with "ass" in it is not well said. THIS is well-said...

    To be, or not to be: that is the question:
    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
    And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
    No more; and by a sleep to say we end
    The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
    That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
    To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;
    For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
    When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
    Must give us pause: there's the respect
    That makes calamity of so long life;
    For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
    The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,
    The pangs of despised love, the law's delay,
    The insolence of office and the spurns
    That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
    When he himself might his quietus make
    With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,
    To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
    But that the dread of something after death,
    The undiscover'd country from whose bourn
    No traveller returns, puzzles the will
    And makes us rather bear those ills we have
    Than fly to others that we know not of?
    Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
    And thus the native hue of resolution
    Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
    And enterprises of great pith and moment
    With this regard their currents turn awry,
    And lose the name of action. - Soft you now!
    The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons
    Be all my sins remember'd.

    This is sad. I always wanted a Maitland. Their designs were innovative rather than the usual "cookie-cutter" bows which we see so many of.
    This is a reason why sometimes it pays to wait and see... too many companies are here today and gone tomorrow.
    That said, I do hope the best for Maitland...

    Personally, I want the small guy to make it, especially with innovative designs. I went with K & K, was a great bow, but got burnt on cams ($160). I have 2 Martin Zeus, now can't get limbs for them. One $1150 bow is just sitting waiting for limbs and can't use it. I even sent Rob some NEW limbs back that were not the right ones. Now nothing....................... .......
