Got this 2010 Warthog. It's supposed to be a 70# bow. It maxes at 62. BH 6 1/8th. ATA 34 7/8ths. It has 5L limbs. I'm also curious as to what the extra countersunk holes in the cams (as pointed out) are for? What am I missing here? My '09 Firecat didn't have these extra holes that I can remember. Thanks for your help!

I'll bet if you move the module same of hole will line up with that hole

Ten, the mod holes do line up with the countersunk holes already. There are 3 holes in each cam that line up with the mods at the same time. Almost had me wondering if the Warthogs had 3 module screws instead of the normal two. That's what's got me thrown here. That, and I think it has the wrong limbs to be a 70#'er. lol

Anyone know if the 5L are the right limbs for this to be a 70# bow?

Looking at Martin's 2010 website, it shows that the mod screws can go in either hole on that side of the module. One picture shows the screw in the back hole, one shows it in the front. So that problem is solved. Still wondering if these are the right limbs though. Just under BH and ATA specs, and still not up to draw weight.

The CAT II cams used two different modules.
On the Warthog the standard mod gave you a 27-30" dl.
The long draw mods added 30.5" and 31".
I think the additional hole in the cam was to accommodate the
LD mod.

These bad boys really rated at 350?? They make pretty decent speeds??

:cool:YES:cool: I don't know if they actually get that speed or not though.

Drop, I haven't shot it through a chrono yet, but it does zip them out there plenty fast. Shooting it at 66 pounds, it has as flat of a trajectory as any of my 70# bows with the same arrows. I'll let everyone know some speeds after I get it on a chrony.

You got it right. Those extra holes are for the long draw mod, which isn't being used any more.

Well, I finally got it on a chrony. Shooting a 28.25 true draw @69#. 359 gr. arrow @298........386gr. arrow@286fps Turns out this is about the same as my Onza III at 70#, or my 70# Alien X at 67#. The Alien will bump up to 74#, and it'll shoot a 434 gr. arrow at 300fps. Granted, I have not tuned the Warthog since I put new limbs on it. So figure that might bump the speeds up a little. Will it hit 350???? Not that I can see. Looks to be basically the same as the 2011 FC400 or Onza as far as speed. Still not dissapointed though, as this thing is a REALLY accurate bow. Must be the longer ATA.

Just got an offer from a guy on AT that dips 10-12 bows a week. He said for me to come on down and watch how it's done. That'll be a big help. Hopefully, he's not too far from me.

Sounds like it needs some fine tuning cuz it can be faster.
