    I recently purchased a used Martin Hatfield Takedown with writing on the limbs and riser MHTD 6289. I was hoping to learn the year made. This way I can determine if it is able to use any string material such as fast flight.

    Larry I'd like to ask ..... .... If I was to try and buy just one of the bows you designed, the bow of which you are most proud ... which one would it be? My eyesight is failing, my joints don't move as they used to, my memory is failing and I have COPD and Asthma... I've decided I want one...

    I acquired a Martin Hatfield TD last year. I really like the bow. My hand fits the grip perfect and it is faster than my DH Coronado with the same draw weight specs. It's a keeper. I noticed that the serial number on the riser (MHTD 3390) did not match the serial numbers on the limbs (3422)...

    Larry, please forgive the unusual nature of this question ... I'll explain later. Do flight archers ever experience target panic?

    Larry, throughout your distinguished career, did you ever consider or think about making an English style longbow?

Jus wondering if what I did find...

    I bought this bow new at least 16 years ago maybe 20+ Im not sure. I looked at some other threads here on similar bow and I think I can use fastflight with this bow, but Im not sure. No one had a picture that looked like this one. Here are pictures of both sides of one tip. I would appreciate...

    I am wondering whether it is worth warfing this riser? It currently has 52#@28 and with my 30.5" draw I am holding 61# so basically I can't use it. If it is worthwhile, how difficult is it to do? Thanks, Blair.

    My Estonian friend Aare has a Martin Hatfield T/D bow, he won 2007 WA3D worlds in 2007 with this bow, he wants to get lighter limbs 35# for either a 64" or 62" bow, can anybody help with sourcing some limbs. :thankyou:

    I have a riser from an older Hatfield takedown. I was able to get Larry to sign it and refinish it. I need a set of limbs for it. However it is the older design with the recessed pocket for the limbs. It uses smaller pins and the new limbs will not fit. Anyone know where I can find a set of limbs?

    Dear Mr. Hatfield, I recently bought a MHTD. Could you tell me how old it is by the 4 digit marking number, 6317? What woods were used? Original retail price? Any information would be wonderful. Sincerely, Joseph Royal Robert McArdell
