This is my first parallel limb bow and did I sure pick a good one.  Considered a workingman's bow with a $399 retail price, I added a drop away rest with containment arm, dead nuts sight and a front mount STS.  At 29" draw and 60 lb. weight, I am firing a 353 grain Gold Tip at 273 feet per second.  Very little vibration or hand shock and pretty quiet too.
 
My only issue has been with the string, I have had considerable stretch issues with it so after deer season I will be replacing it.  Other than that, I love the way it feels and shoots.
 
An extremely good value for the money.
 
Good shooting.

Glad to talk to all of you, but I'd rather be sitting in a tree stand on a cool morning trying not to move so that the bruiser buck directly below me doesn't figure out that I am watching him!

I have heard good things about the Martin bows.  Ohhh, if we only had enough money to have one of each brand.

No doubt, if I owned one of all of them, I could pick which one to use each day based upon my mood at the time.  Come to think of it, I think that is how my wife picks which shoes to wear each day!
 
Good shooting.
