Martin Threshold Reviews from Customers:
“Great Bow for Beginners to Advanced! I was shooting a recurve bow when I danced with the option of buying a compound. My worry was spending $500+ on a bow and not liking it. After a few weeks of research I found the Martin Threshold and bought it. It arrived well enough. Had to take it to a bow tech for them to install the correct pull length piece in for me. Once that was all set I took it out for a spin. Instantly fell in love. Once I had everything dialed in it shot great groups. I actually almost robin hooded last week with it. I think I would have if i didn’t switch to an easy pull point. But nevertheless the bow shoots straight and true. I did make some adjustments listed below. Not including arrows, arm guard and rest I paid about $300. Not that bad for a starter bow that I plan on keeping a few years before I hand down to my nephew.
Arrow rest – The one that came with the bow ruined a lot of my vanes so I changed to a whisker biscuit.
Sight – Its good enough, but with a little ingenuity and my friend’s broken sight I added two more pins to it and now it’s a 5 pin sight.
- Peep sight – IMO using a sight without a peep sight is almost pointless. You can’t tell if you’re torquing the bow.
- Grip – I put camo tape around the grip for a more comfortable feel.
- Kisser Button
- String Suppressors
- Bow Sling
I would highly recommend this bow to anyone who has to make a cost conscious decision when buying a bow. Its a great bow and if you get it tuned properly and dialed in correctly you will be shooting some really nice groups. My only regret, not getting the 60-70# bow =)” – Bill LE
“I was in the market for a Compound Bow that was reasonably priced, yet also integrated some of the newer technology and the Martin Threshold is almost too good to be true.
At $200, it is IMPOSSIBLE and probably ignorant to try and compare it with similar bows on the market simply because neither Bowtech, nor PSE as well as others make a Compound Bow with these features at this price.
The Bow itself is strong Aluminum, ergonomically comfortable and has a beautiful camo finish.
It comes with a decent rest ($15 alone for the cheapest one at a retail store), a sight ($17), a quiver ($20), as well as the standard stabilizer bar. Therefore it’s almost as if the Bow itself is selling for around $150, which is the price of a decent youth bow.
It breaks down easily (if you know anything about Compound Bows) and is easy to adjust.
I understand others’ complaints about wanting better instructions, but what everyone should do (the proper, safe and intelligent thing to do) is go to your nearest Archery store/Dealer and have a professional measure your Draw Length (the 60-70lb version adjusts from 26-31″), as too many people have difficulty with their equipment because of this simple factor. They can also help you adjust draw weight as well as your sight preferences.
Shooting this Bow is much like shooting my Bowtech, which cost more than 3 times as much.
It goes without saying that you need to purchase a caliper release w/T-strap, unless you honestly can pull 60-70lbs of concentrated pressure on the 1/4 inch area of skin between your pointer and middle fingers.
Overall this is a No-brained purchase for first time Bow owners, or anyone looking for an exceptional Bow at an amazing price.
Hopefully this helps and reminds buyers to review the product with logic and common sense and avoid spoiled, entitled remarks that have nothing to do with qulity and value.”- Protecting Consumers
“Awesome bow and great price. Only downside is it lacks setup instructions of any useful value. Some reviews say this bow is loud, mine is dead silent, makes me wonder if they have theirs setup properly. You also get a HUGE adjustment range in pull weights which is great for a person like me returning to archery after many years. I can start off low and work back up to 70lbs. Sights are great, the rest is great. Some folks complaign about the rest… it is fully adjustable in every direction. When setup correctly it has no deflection. It comes with different cams to adjust draw lengths. These are a tad tricky to install… sort of a 2 man job. Single cam bows also do not need to be “tuned” like double cam bows when replacing strings, another great selling point to this bow. Last comment… this bow is solidly made. It is not made cheaply by any means.” – John Avery
“Worth the effort. I really like this bow. Given that I am upgrading from a 25 year old model (BEAR) I did expect a lot of improvements, I just didn’t think I would get this much for the money. This package has me ready to hunt after an hour at the archery shop. Unless you have some knowledge on assembling these things I would let a pro handle it. I thought I could figure it out but had a couple of things wrong.
Even with paying 50 bucks for assembly this was still a deal. I was able to get a 10 inch group at 30 yards right out of the package which says more about the bow than any skill on my part. Highly recommend to anyone looking to get into archery.
- great value
- very accurate
- difficult to set up
I plan to upgrade the rest to a full capture style but will still have a hunt ready bow for about 350 dollars. Thank you Martin Archery and Amazon!
UPDATE: After a few more tweeks and some range time my 30 yard groups are down to 2 inches. The learning curve has been very easy and I like this bow more every time I use it. Highly recommend!” – FatFrog
