nope not really gaining anything. your cable rod guide works great!! if you did get a ccs you would also need longer cable, or back your bow down about two turns to maintain draw weight. a good sts type system, and a good stabilizer will help more than the ccs though

You can't put a CCS on your bow, the riser isn't cut for it.

Drill and tap some holes. :) isnt the rod in a bracket, that has thesame bolt pattern as the ccs?

Not possible. It is a C channel cut in the riser.

See right below the 1 1/2" mark under the tape?

if your bow did take the ccs i would say do it.i did not have to get longer cables when i put the ccs on my bengal and i did not have to back out my limb bolts either.i did gain 3 lbs of DW but that is fine it has had no ill effect on my bow.my draw felt so much more smooth after i put my ccs on.i was juse a bit more ez to draw.

What year is your bow? Is it the same as the Martin Exile? They changed in 2011 as far as I know. Can you post pictures?

Sorry, I was thinking you had the 2011 version for some reason.

Lol, yeah should bolt right up then huh? No drilling required. And for the record, i guess ive never drew a cat/nitro/ hybrix camed bow without a ccs and never drew a accutrack/ mpro without the slider. I do know my buddies rock with a single cam at 68 pounds pulls way easier than my ax at 63 pounds. The ax is much much faster, but the deer dont seem to care about any of that!

OK, I've said this many times here and on other forums. Shoot both bows over a chronograph. Keep reducing the weight on your AX till the two bows are shooting the same speed. Then compare the draw cycles and weigh the AX to see how much less weight you need to draw to get the same speed. Bet that AX won't seem as hard as you think. And if using your last sentence as a pun, the deer don't care what the draw weight of the bow is either.

Yeah barry, the deer just dont care about draw weight but they have snickered a few time when they seen my skullz camo. (Thats a joke too ;) )
