I've been looking for a RH M-PRO cam to replace a damaged one on a 2007 Cheetah. LMK if you have one.
Thanks!

Jst a question, but what kind of damage is it and how did it happen? If you'd rather not sat here then PM me. It's quite possible it would be covered by the warranty.

Well, as I was lowering the bow to the ground out of the tree, the rope snapped. The cam is dinged with a sharp edge and it is unsafe to shoot. I called Martin about it and they said I would have to get an accu-trak cam, new idler wheel, and string for about $140. Which is a fair price, but I can find a used Cheetahs for under $200, so I didn't want to spend that much. And I am hoping somebody has an extra cam lying around.

Do as AS said above. In the interim, depending on how bad it is you could possibly use a rattail file to remove any dings or flat spot. This may allow you to continue shooting. I know I use a file on all my cams to remove any sharp edges that can cause serving damage. It works just fine so far. Is it possible for you to post a picture so we can see just how bad it is?

Yeah, I've had a post up on AT for about 2 weeks with no response yet. WHen I get a chance, I'll get a pic up.

Also, my dad is a metal machinist, and he COULD grind it, but I also have a concern about weakening the metal on the cam that is under so much pressure.
