I figured, with all the negative threads and badmouthing of the Maitland brand, I'd attempt to offset it a bit. I'm the PROUD owner of a "like new" Halo 31 bought from a fellow AT'er. And, while I must admit to having a bit of an obsession with trying a little bit of everything, I do NOT regret buying the Halo without having ever shot a Maitland, or for that matter, ever having even seen one in person. NOW... is it ALL THAT and a bag o'chips? I'd say... no. But, hold the phone... before you all (or, most of you) go off half-cocked, remember this. Why did you buy a new bow last year? Or, the year before? Or, are waiting for the next big release from your favorite brand? I know MY answer... it's because NO BOW IS PERFECT! I LOVE the Halo for what I'm going to use it for (Hunting). Just like, I LOVE my CHILLR for what I'll be using it for (3D). And, I love my Prime for what I use it for (Target/Spot). So, while the bows may not be perfect... they are an AWESOME testament to what ONE little guy with an awesome design can do when he sets his mind to it. MY OPINION on the matter is this... If you thought a "little guy" or a "boutique builder" was going to be around long enough to honor warranty issues 3,4 or more years down the road, you were either delusional, or were willing to roll the dice and hope for the best. Looks like you bet on red, and the wheel landed on black. Who ya gonna sue in Vegas when your gamble doesn't pay off? I just get tired of seeing all the negativity. If u have something positive to contribute in the MAITLAND section, I'd LOVE to see and read it. If all you spew is negativity and "woe is me" talk... I wish you'd post somewhere else so I don't have to read through your ****E to get to someone's comments who have something worthwhile to say.
THESE COMMENTS ARE MY OPINION, AND MINE ALONE!
THANK YOU ROB MAITLAND FOR A FANTASTIC BOW!
