They carry APA's, Bowtechs, Diamond's, Ross' and some PSE's.
However, Cheryl will order anything in that you like.

They are great to deal with I would recommend them, very helpful with tuning your bow or any problems you may have.

I tried to deal with the guys in Calgary Foothills and got the run around about a fairly new bow that had the cams in it that had been nailed for patent violation. I was told my bow was junk now. I took my bow to Lane in Lethbridge and not only did she put the new cams in but she tuned the bow for free. I was so impressed with the level of service that she provided that I bought $200.00 in new arrows and then as I was going to be giving my bow to my son, I took a look at the BowTech Top Gun. Shot it in the archery lanes, had it tuned to me in 5 minutes. Bought on the spot. You could not ask for nicer people who know their stuff. Oh and BowTech shoots really nice!!!

dennis and cheryl are awesome!! they were instrumental in helping me with my first bow (a 20+ year old browning) when i took it in they helped me with everything I needed, gave me some great tips and pointers and had a private shoot in the back with dennis that felt like a golf lesson from a pro. thanks to their help and a ton of practice I was able to harvest a WT buck on my 4th day as a bowhunter!!

Cheryl and Dennis are the best. They will not lie to you about anything, and they will do the best they can by you. They carry APA, Bowtech, Diamond, Ross, and they will order Elite, Hoyt and Matthews. They do good business, and are a great asset to the SABA too!

They have helped me out a ton. I bought a used bow off of them and they set me up and gave me free lessons. I will be going there about once a week to shoot. The bad part about that is they are so nice that I want to buy something every time im there haha. They are both very patient and will answer absolutely any questions you have.

I bought a used martin from them that they set me up with. I held a few different ones and they said from the looks of things that the martin fit me the best and have been very good with setting it up and tuning it in for me.

i bought a martin from cheryl about 15 years ago. something must have happened between then and now. like many said, they are 2 of the nicest people around. and are willing to answer any questions you may have. they also carry a very good supply of accessories and a good line of camo.

Default Re: Martin Bows

Repeating (hopefully accurately) what I was told recently: All parts, etc. coming into Alberta stores had to come through a 3rd party, who sounded to me like he was a PITA.

Apparently Martin in the US is supposed to be good to deal with, but I have been waiting for a response to an inquiry for over a month... doesn't sound like good customer service to me.

Default GREAT to deal with

I bought my first bow from Cheryl and Dennis this year. It was substantially cheaper at Lane Archery than it was at Bass Pro, which was great. They set me up, tuned the bow, taught me how to shoot, and have been great with service, accessories and answers.

I would recommend Lane to anyone, and have. Got my buddy into a bow too!

Absolutely best place EVER!
Like 4 or 5 others, I bought my first bow there, and Cheryl and Dennis took almost 3 hours with me. whereas when I went to Bass pro recently I got some of the worst product advice in my life (Remington has really gone downhill). Any who I don't there is much they wouldn't do for you, I gotta get down there soon for more arrows and to get some bandaged up! Hit up that great outdoor range too!
