I've been having mine for a year and have 29 years shooting archery. Yeah cheaper bows like this may have the occasional defect, but from what I've read on other reviews there are more defective newbies stringing them than bad bows. Also Martin archery stands behind their bows period, if its defective they will make it right! If you are a newbie go to a range learn how to shoot and string a recurve, almost every range has rentals. And I have yet to meet a rude stuck up person that shoots at any ranges(they all love to share advice, teach & learn, if not they wouldn't be there) Once you know archery is for you this bow is as good as any bow out there and costs way less than the majority of them. It breaks down & packs up easily. If you want to use it as a bowfishing I would suggest sanding and sealing the limbs sides to seal the wood core from water damage. Dont buy the higher poundage if you really want to shoot targets alot, the 40lb is my bowfishing bow and I can easily hit a 2" bullseye @ 20yards without wearing you out & killing your abilty to be accurate. This coming from a guy that shoots 80lbs to hunt. The one true statement of archery its an aquired skill, no one is good at it from the start, it takes patience & practice.

Fantastic bow. Goes together easily, accepts most compound bow accessories, about half as heavy as my compound. One thing to be sure of- make sure the brace height is set correctly. I shot for 3 months thinking this was a loud bow, but when I finally checked the brace height it was much too low (5 inches). I set it to 7 1/4" and put some cat whiskers on and you can't hear the thing at all.

This bow was a great decision. I use a cheapo sight on it and can easily put a group of 5 arrows in the bullseye of my practice target at 15 yards.

I bought this bow as my first starter bow. It is amazing considering it only cost 150 or so bucks. There are cheaper bows that start at 100 dollars but they don't feel as sturdy as this one.

The aluminum raiser (handle) is one of the most solid peices of metal I have ever had in my hand. And it feels more like you are holding a loaded gun rather than a bow. Some people prefer the lighter bows but I like that sturdy feel. The limbs are very strong yet they offer a smooth draw and clean release. The only downside for me personally was the huge wide arrow rest on the raiser but this bow is geared more towards hunters that trick out there bows where as I favor more traditional shooting but other than that this bow is flawless.

If you want to start shooting but not spend loads of money and yet still have quality equipment, this is the bow is it. It both apeals to hunters and begenniers who are just looking to practice or do some 3D shooting.

I bought this bow back in September 2012 and I have been using it quite regularly(for target practice) I am new to re-curve bows but I love the rustic feel of it. As for this product it has been working amazingly I have fired 3000+ arrows and still shoots like day one. I would recommend it to any of my friends!

When stringing the bow the first time, I sneezed and let the string slip on wrong, which led to a limb snapping... before i even shot the bow. I called the vendor and they gave me a free exchange! I'm now enjoying shooting this awesome (for the budget) recurve bow.

I had purchased this bow from Bass Pro shops, pulled back for draw length, never dry fired. Went out to their practice range and on my 10th shot the bottom limb snapped causing me to punch myself in the face. Bass pro immediately apologized and replaced it. I went home and looked online and it turns out Martin has issue with the limbs on the jaguar since it was released. They are nice and will replace broken limbs for free,.. by why bother? People have had the limbs snap 3 different times after being replaced. That said I returned it and switched it for a PSE Coyote who originally used the same limbs as martin but when the same issue occurred they ended making the limbs in house and quit using that company,... martin did not. Buyer beware.

The jaguar shoots alright if you can put it together, but be aware that if you purchase this bow, there's a decent chance you'll have to send it right back because the barrel nuts may not fit the riser. The holes in some risers are too narrow. When you attempt to assemble it, if the barrel nuts don't slide right in with finger strength alone, you're sunk. Return it or fix it yourself.

You can, as I did, rebore the holes in the riser if you have an assortment of metal drill bits, a decent drill, and a table vice. Of course if you go this route, you'll negate the warranty.

My best advice - don't buy this bow. Even if you do manage to assemble one, you'll always need an allen wrench to take it down, and you'll likely need to replace the plastic washers at some point (oh, and the arrow rest that comes with it is absolute rot). There are better bows out there.

A few months after I bought the jaguar, I purchased the Samick Sage Takedown Recurve Bow 50lb. I like it a lot more than the jaguar. It cost me $20 less, I can take it down with my bare hands, there's no cheap plastic involved, and it looks far more graceful.
