What mods are you guys making to your Martin? Just got my 2012 Cougar and so far I've swapped out the stock cable slide for a Saunders Hyper Glide, and replaced the sts stopper with a Limbsaver stopper (just replaced the end piece). These are both mods I learned about here. Any other things I should consider replacing?

Thanks guys!

One thing I've already noticed is that the grip isn't going to last very long. It is already starting to bunch up and the wooden insert on one side is starting to slide out of place as the material continues to creep out of position. What can I do with the grip?

How do you like the Saunders? I am thinking about switching over to that as well. I switched the string stop to the mathews stop and put custom strings on it. I also took off some of the excessive serving on the string that the d-loop ties around. There is just a ton of it on there and to me it is excessive. I believe that is all I have done.

I like it, may just be my mind playing tricks on me but it does seem to make things smoother. I bought it primarily because I was reading on here where some folks were having excessive string wear with the stock cable slides.

Replaced the stock bumper with a MacDaddy - trimmed it down so when I shorten the rod up it isn't still pushing into the string with the longer bumper. It's kinda beat up so I might get another one or switch to a Limbsaver one. Saunders slide is a must imo if rod/slide on your bow. Got some Cool Kats whiskers and so far that is about it. I'll be ordering up some new strings sometime, just not sure when yet. Need to get a few other things in order first.
