Take the bow to your nearest martin dealer and get the cable rod and guide setup,then get some new string and cables,then your good to go.

yeah i have the sos/trg but will the dealer replace the string cable and slide for free? or will this 350dollar end up being a 500 dollar

You have to get the parts from a dealer,but the work you can do yourself. Martin bows don't need a press to remove/install strings. They can be completely dismantled w/o a press

Go to your dealer. They are replacing the TRG/SOS with the cable guide rod, and if there is excessive string wear, there have been a few guys reporting of a new string being included at no charge. The dealer may charge to set it up, but as stated in a previous post, you could do the work yourself. Good Luck, welcome to the forum, and keep us posted on your progress.

Excuse me? :confused::confused::confused:

uh...what? That's the beauty of Martin. Back out the limb bolts equal turns(3 turns top,3 turns bottom). In the riser just below the limb pockets are barrel nuts on each end. Keep watching through there while backing the limb bolts out until you can see the bottom of the limb bolt in the middle of the barrel nut. At this point,the strings/cables can be removed. ATTENTION: If you have no experience with the string removal,it helps to snap a few pics to refer to when you're ready to put them back on. Pay special attention to what string goes where on the cable slide,what side of the slide rod the strings are on,and the string routing on the cam.

It's still a bit early for me to be trying to explain stuff since I've only had half a cup 'o coffee. Hopefully my instructions make sense. If not,ask questions and I should be prepared for a better explanation by then. LOL

Is that what the :confused: was about?

Extremely interesting! I know how to work with bowpress and strings/cables, but I have never known that you could actually loosen the tension so much with Martin bows without using a bowpress. Is this actually told in the bow manual? I have owned a Martin bow since 2003 and I have always used a bow press when doing string/cable work... :p

Thanks for this, your explanation was very clear!

the no press is great for in the field.i dont like to bring anthing more then i need so if i did fall and de-rail a string i could loosen the limb bolts and put it back together.most all martin bows can be takin down at aroun 10 full turns.well thats what it takes for me bengal

I tried this with my Onza 3. I certainly still prefer a bow press if only there is one available; the tension is still relatively high to work conveniently with strings and cables. I suppose you could change them, though. I did not want to go all the way and try that now, since I did not have immediate access to a bow press if I would get in trouble...
