Can anyone advise me on what I can do to increase the holding weight on my Martin Cougar 2000 bow. With the limbs bottomed out, it is 45 lbs. The holding weight is only about 11 lbs. which is way, way to light causing it to be so critical it is impossible to shoot accurately. It has a Fuzion cam on the bottom limb with a round wheel on the top limb.

Thanks, Mark R

Thanks for your reply. What setup would you suggest to end up with somewhere around 50-55lbs. total weight and between 15-20 lbs. holding weight?
Do I need to change limbs and cams...If so, what is the most accurate combination on the market I can put on this Cougar 2000 riser?

55# with a 65% let off mod should give you about 19# of holding weight

if your bow maxes out at 45 # then to get up to 55 Im sure you will need new limbs... as for the holding weight if you max at 45# then a 65% mod will give you about 15# of holding weight.. I think you are at 75% now as for the limbs or getting a max of 55# if you go to archerytalk.com and PM joel C or PUG they can help you out or call martin archery and talk to joel or jake.. mark

From all the info I can gather, it looks like Elite limbs and Furious X cams might be the way to go. Do you or anyone know if this setup will work on a Cougar 2000 handle, or would I be better off not messing with what I have and buy something like the S4.
