I don't own a Bengal Pro, but there are a lot of owners here on this forum so they can help you. I will just throw in my opinion, changing the cable rod out to the CCS will not be straight forward. The pictures that I have seen of the Bengal Pro have the rod slide into the riser with a couple of bolts holding it in. The CCS is mounted flush into a slot that is machined into the riser. Also If you managed to install the CCS into the riser you would have to get new cables since it will preload the limbs a lot adding more weight. If you are trying to quite the Bengal down you are in the right place to ask questions. You may be able to add a better cable slide such as a Saunders or add a cable slide stop. I hope you enjoy your Bengal, those are awesome looking bows, and now that all of my bows are Nitro and Hybrix cams I have been thinking about acquiring a single cam. Droppixel will probably jump in here and steer you in the right direction -- if not you could send him a PM everyone here are very helpful. Good luck.

yes i have noticed the slot that the cable rod slides into. i am a master precision machinist and have decided i am going to fabricate a solid aluminum block so it fits flush into the slot and will be secured by the two existing bolt holes and then i will drill two new holes into the new piece of aluminum for the ccs to be mounted. this is my idea. i think it will work fine and i dont have to drill holes into my riser so my warranty will not be voided. any more ideas guys?

Maybe you could slide one of these into the riser and then you would be able to adjust the limb pre-load by the length of the shaft from the riser.

That roller guide is installed on the Mathews bows. If you have a dealer around I am sure that you could get one from them. There are probably other manufactures that use a similar setup. I have thought about messing with one on my Onza, but my current setup works pretty well with the cable slide and cable slide stop.

Good luck, I'll stick with the rod and guide, much simpler and works. Have a Diamond Iceman with the flexguard. If you figure out how to put a rod and guide on it I'll pay you to take the Flexgetinthe wayGuard.

Here's another spin. Prime makes a couple one that flexes and one that doesn't. The cables are routed through ceramic sleeves that don't have bearing to wear. They are also probably a lot cheaper than the Mathews system. The one that doesn't flex is the called the I-Glide and the one that flexes is called the I-Glide Flex. Here is a link to the video.

Bob,

How is the roller end of the flex guard attached to the flat flexing arm? If the roller end block is bolted on could you just replace the flexing arm with something that doesn't flex and bend it to where you want the guard to be placed for clearance.

Lab Rat; it's just a miniture bow limb attached to the riser with one screw in the back, the front is set in some guides that keep it from jumping all over. It just has never been the cats meow for me, I have to load arrows with cock vane out whitch puts one vane down, not my favorite setup for a fall away rest. Bow draws like silk but call me old school I just don't like rollers, they belong on skates. Theres been some failures on them starting to pop up and if I could replace it with a rod and guide it would be done. Bow shoots fine, but Blowuptech is the most unfriendly of Archery companies to deal with, you must go through a dealer for anything. Closest dealer is 2 hr. drive. This is where Martins cs has always shined for me. Hope the new owners don't squash that, or I'll be out of business. On fixed income and a 4hr drive for a easily replaced part is not good. One more Martin should see me through my archery career, a nice target bow in 40-50lbs.

Stock slide was the first thing that was changed from my Bengal before any other accessory was installed on the bow. I run a Saunders Hyper Glide and can't say anything bad about it and I'm sure the others that do will say the same. Might take a look at one of those prior to trying to figure out how to machine something for a CCS mount and need to take into consideration that with the CCS it is probably best that your cables be served where they pass through the rollers. Just one more thing to think about.

I do like the idea to being able to change out the rod for others that have rollers like Matthews or the flex like G5, but don't think that is possible really unless they are willing to sell you that part direct - even then it would take some testing I'd think in order make sure they all function properly because they may have their's placed in different locations of the riser which might not match up with how the Martins are centered/etc.
