Sorry, the 2013 bows are still too new, not too many people have them. Assuming that the hole for the STS is the same size, and center you should be ok. The only way to know is to call in and talk to CS... I know that the carbon STS for 2012 wouldn't fit on most 2011's because the hole was different... I would assume that the 2013 bows would be interchangeable for most parts.

Josh,

What kind of issue are you having with the stock string stopper? My Rytera Aliens have the same type of string stopper and they really work well. My Onza 3 has the carbon STS which I don't see as a tremendous upgrade except they may look a little better. I kind of like the bent stopper rod that is on my Aliens because they are thinner and work well with my tilt tamer. At least on my 2012 Onza the carbon STS is a fat straight rod with a smaller diameter rod coming out both ends which are offset from one another to avoid the cables. At least on the Onza it is installed into a drilled hole with two set screws securing it just as the other stopper rods are. The rubber stoppers themselves are just fit over the ends of the rods just like the bent stop rods.

well they bump where it contact the string was off about 16th inch and i would like to move the bump to where it can be touch to string and when i release the arrow and string hit the bump and it move back and not keep contact after it stop so i just want to put bump in where it string contact when it not draw in full but i need bump to stay where i position and not to move everytime i draw and shot so i like to have bump lock down

If you want the string stopper to just touch the string at brace and after the bow is fired it is pushing the stopper forward you will need to loosen the two set screws on the riser that hold the rod in the hole and back it out a little maybe a 1/16 or 1/8 inch at a time and reshoot to see what happens. This is if I am understanding your problem correctly.
