After being away from archery for many years I got the bug again. There have been so many advances in technology since my last involvement I figured I owed it to myself to partake. Therefore, I ordered a new Martin Prowler in 60#.

My old bow was, and is, a Pearson Hunter Classic that has solid limbs like the Prowler. Does one use limb savers on a solid limb bow? I thought they were only used on the new, to me anyway, split limb bows?

Also, I have always been a finger shooter. The Prowler has a 33" ATA length. Does anyone shoot a bow of this length with fingers or is a release necessary?

They do make Limb Savers for solid limb bows, I have them on my Mathews Ultra2. As for fingers on a 33 ATA, I'd say probably not a good idea. Once you get used to a release, you will like it. I have a strong traditional background and I have a hard time shooting fingers with any compound.

Thanks for the input Shawn. I was over at the Academy store this afternoon and saw the limb savers for solid limbs.
