Martin Onza???

Definitely on the fugly side, even makes a Mathews look ok...

From: pav

Could also be a Jim Cox Black Ram or Martin Black Ram II....thinking the Martin Jaguar version came first though.

Overdraws were the "buzz" in the early 80's. I seriously considered the handle forward design before settling on a shoot through riser design. Can you name this one?

I'm thinking Martin. Apparently Martin thought the concept was worth reviving in 2011 in their Rytera line with the "Seeker"

The initial, top picture looks like a Browning or Cabelas bow.

From: boothill

Looks like an old McPherson from the 80's.

Brotsky for the win

From: Paul@thefort
15-Jun-18
My guess, the bow is a 1984-85 Martin Jaguar.

Looks like a mouse ate the fetching off the arrows.

Yep, lots of history in the development of the perfect compound bow.

I am going to guess that pav's pic is of a York S-T-O (shoot-through-overdraw).

From: Errorhead

Pav’s pic , York STO, I had one! It was so ugly but different.

I was guessing the same as boothill.

I don’t have a clue but I’ll bet Ted Nugent had two of them. :-)

OK, ELKMAN, what do I win for "naming" the bow correctly.

From: pav
15-Jun-18
Cobie33 and Errorhead got the York STO (shoot through overdraw) correct. Not sure exactly....but bought mine new between 1982-1984. Not a bad bow for it's time....once you got used to loading an arrow! LOL

I’m with pav and Paul on the jaguar.

Back in the 80s, I used to shoot with a guy who accidentally got shot by his sister with a shotgun in his left forearm when he was a kid. He didn’t have much lateral strength in that forearm, so he rigged up a strap to the riser of his jaguar that went around his wrist to stabilize things. He won a lot of tournaments, plus killed a pile of deer and several elk.

Are they wooden cams? Feel like that cant be possible, but Lookin on my phone, so pics are pretty fuzzy....

Its a Jag

From: WapitiBob

It's a Jim Cox black ram. Late 80's give away is the slotted yoke wheel, and the clip holding the buss cable to the yoke. That clip was an after thought of some mfg's after Mel Stanislawski sold the roller guard to Martin.

From: Paul@thefort

After comparing pictures of all three extended handle bows, I agree with Bob, it is a Jim Cox Black Ram. The Martin Jag, had a slimmer riser and a slightly different extended handle. my best, Paul

From: x-man

The Jag had round wheels. I agree that this is a Jim Cox Black Ram.

From: t-roy

Jaguar didn’t have a wooden riser either, correct?

From: WapitiBob
16-Jun-18
not that I remember

From: ELKMAN

Perhaps a Martin Black Ram from around 1987 ???

From: WapitiBob

Martin probably made it for Cox.

From: ELKMAN
