Contact either your local Martin dealer or Martin customer service. They will swap the TRG for the rod/slide at no charge.

They will normally ask for the TRG to be returned, I have seen a couple members on here that were not asked to return theirs, but I have been asked to return all the ones that I have replaced.

Fairly easy to swap. Just pop the string/cable out of the TRG and loosen the 2 set screws and slide the TRG out and the new rod in, tighten the set screws and install the slide and put the string/cables into the slide. You may need to back the limb bolts out in order to get enough slack on the string/cable before removing them from the TRG though.

does the cable rod slide in without any resistance? on my onza i had to force it in with the alien screws completly out , actually had to hammer on it.

Where are you calling from? They are in Washington state so if you are in a different time zone, maybe you could try before work.

Yes, you do need a slide. If your time schedule won't allow you to contact Martin then you could order a slide online, either through Martin's website or one of the other online stores. Martin has them for under 2.00, probably much less than you'll find them elsewhere.

Yes, you do need a slide, but it doesn't necessarily need to be one from Martin. You should be able to get on from any archery store (even box stores). While you're spending the money I'd also recommend to bite the hullet and get a Teflon slide. They're more durable and les problems with chattering or squeaking when they get wet or dirty. There's maintenance involved with any slide. Periodically take a cloth or paper towel and some alcohol and clean the rod. Clean the inner diameter of the slide while you're at it. Use no lubricant.

Bowgramp, call them again and tell them what you need. They do come in different lengths, but the fact is they are all cut from a 3/8" carbon rod and can be cut to any length you desire. Heck, ask them for a 9" rod. You can always cut it shorter if it's too long.
