      Hello there, first let me explain that I am an end user, not the retailer. My bow however, looks exactly like the one pictured. And I am very pleased with it.

  • Q:

    I am trying to choose between the Martin Hunter and the Mamba. I have a 28 inch draw. What would I gain by choosing the Hunter? Would it be easier to shoot more accurately due to its length?
    Thanks for your time.

      A:

      Yes, The longer the bow the smoother the draw will be. Also the longer length helps stable out the bow a full draw for better accuracy.

      A:

      I forgot to mention the finger pinch, the longer the bow the less the finger pinch, until I switched to Martin longer bows I suffered from a numb third finger, with the longer bow, the numbness disappeared.

      A:

      I’m not an expert, but I remember that the longer the bow, the less stacking and therefore the smoother the draw. Works for me.

      A:

      Hello Fellow Archer!
      Gosh, Have I been here! About a year ago I spent 3 solid months researching both bows. And I mean researching! I compared weights, AMOs, FPS (where I could find it documented), I even did my own estimates about shot distance with my arrows. 
      When the dust had settled, it came down to 2 different points that I focused on.  Accuracy and Draw. Since I haven't had the good fortune of living next to a traditional archery range (are you listening 3 rivers, now would be a good time to start your own line of archery ranges across the US, with movies like The Hunger Games and Brave inspiring young women to pick up a bow!), and being able to draw and test fire each before I bought them, I had to go on other reviews and reading TONS of books about archery and what makes a good recurve design. 
      Now I do own two other bows: a Bear Patriot long bow and a Martin X-200. I loved the power of my long bow, but I longed for the smooth draw of my recurve and feeling of no hand shock. And like you, I also have a 28" draw length.  
      I won't go into all the details of my research, but after everything was all said and done I chose the Hunter. And man, what a bow it has been. It has the accuracy at 30-45 yards to do small game hunting (rabbit, squirrel, raccoon, etc) and it has the power to take down a dear at 60 yards.  
      One of my big concerns about the bow was how long the AMO was. I kept thinking "Gosh, I hope I don't get caught up on branches or vines in the woods and miss a shot!". And to be honest, I have gotten caught in some trees and weeds, but in every situation, the shorter AMO would not have provided any different results. 
      All in all, you'll be happy if you get the Hunter, its a classic bow and with some good care it could very well be passed down through a family for years to come. 
      I still like the idea of owning a shorter bow and someday I very may well pick up a Mamba for myself and really compare the two. But until then, I'm happy with my choice. 
      I hope this info helps!

  • Q:

    Is the Martin Hunter tillered to shoot better 3 fingers under, split finger, or does it not matter? What is the difference in setup for both shooting styles?
    Asked on 10/24/2013 by PDB from West Seneca, NY

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      You should not see any type of change in performance shooting 3 fingers under or split finger. There can be a difference, but it's very small and would be hard to detect. The only difference in the setup would be the nocking point on the string would be higher.

      A:

      The limb with of the Martin Hunter is approximate 1 3/4" wide there are very few production bows that will have a 2" wide limb width.

  • Q:

    Hey 3RA,

    I have a 27" draw and am highly considering this bow as well as the Martin Mamba. I have shot this bow and I am in love with the smooth draw. My question: Does having a shorter draw length and a longer AMO have any negative side effects, as compared to the Mamba? My concern is that i'll notice stacking on the Mamba vs the Hunter. Since I haven't shot the Mamba I am not sure how the shorter AMO will effect the draw. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

      With a 27" draw you should not feel stacking on either of them.

      A:

      I am sure that the shorter draw will reduce the poundage of the bow, I think it’s one or two pounds per inch of reduced draw length (I would make sure of the numbers though) and then simply order a bow with a higher draw weight to reduce to your desired poundage at your draw length. Hope this helps.

      A:

      With a 27" draw the mamba will be a great choice. I have a 31" draw and I used to shoot a 57" bow. In my opinion 27" to 30" draw length shooters can shoot a 57" bow with no stacking
      Thank you

  • Q:

    What is the grains/per pound for arrows for the hunter?
    Asked on 3/7/2013 by Nate

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      If you are target shooting you can go down to 6 or 7 grains per pound. If you are hunting I recommend getting the arrow weight closer to 8 to 10 grains per pound. The weight of the arrow should increase as the size of the game increases.

  • Q:

    Interested in starting an archery hobby is the Martin hunter a good bow for a beginner? Also how would I go about a quality inspection of a bow?
    Asked on 12/11/2012 by Sam from Jacksonville, NC

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Yes, the Martin Hunter is a great bow for beginners and more advanced shooters.

      There are a number of things to look for in quality. The finish of the bow is normally the first impression. After that you want to look for stress marks and possible glue voids.
