Buying a Martin Bengal compound bow?

A note of precaution though. There have been some reports of the parallel limbs occasionally ending up in a twist and thus putting the string off the center of the idler wheel. The string tends to wear out and you might want to be very careful when shooting in such conditions. Also it comes with draw weights of 40-50, 50-60 and 60-70. Some archers feel that it does not go beyond 66 in the final category.
