I shoot a Phantom II and love it.
Before that I had a old style Prowler/Lynx and liked it enough to buy the new Phantom II. I wouldn't say I loved that one, it was more a love hate relationship. But most of the problem was because of Bass Pro's incompetence.
You know this is a Martin sponsored site, yet every bow poll done here on what bows people are shooting Martin isn't even close. Kinda funny. I know there are Martin shooters here but they are outnumbered by at least 10/1.
Doesn't matter to me who sponsors what or how many others shoot what either. I have a Phantom II Magnum and quite pleased. Short, quiet, fast enough for my purposes, which is only hunting. Added a few accessories, and switched to a Berry 452X string/cable set. I have read other's comments about other bows, and I've checked them all. I'm also a gun nut and have a lot of them, so I'm not shy about checking out different brands. But so far, I can't seem to justify buying another bow since this one completely fills the bill. :beer:
I have been shooting a Hoyt Proelite for a couple of years and now I'am at the cross roads between a mathews LX or a Martin. I hoot with a release and like how the cam and 1/2 work. For those who don't know when you anchor you get to a wall and I like how I have to pull against the wall to get my shot off right. Now on the other hand I like how the mathews LX shoots, It's smooth ,quite and on point. I would like to make another investment in a bow but don't know which on to get. Any suggestions?
Funny thing is, Martin claims to have the most accurate bow on the market! Guess what bow I shot my best score (296) ever with? Bowtech OG, Hoyt Protec, or Martin Phantom 11?..........yep the Martin Phantom 11. It is one accurate bow!
