Is your '11 drilled to accept a rear mount sts? Mine isn't, but a friends has a cutout in the riser like the cable guard rod. I've got a limb savers front mount sts on mine.

its got a side cut out that you can slide a stop in and tighten two allen bolts to keep it tight its not threaded

Pretty easy to tap and not expensive to buy the tap.

theres not much room to tap it. i think il just search for something that fits in the fitting it already has

I had the same thing, had to tap those 2 holes on a Onza III. No problem. Still got the tap. Cost of tap was darn near nothing, 2 or 3 dollars.

That string stop that bolts to the front by the stabilizer - IT SUCKS!

I had the same issue on and older pantera, bought a 5/16 rod. Fabercated it; by heating it up with a touch and putting a bend in the rod. Had to cut to size. Painted it black and used electrical tap at the end so the string stop would fit. Under five bucks.

It does its job. It just looks like crap. I'm going to put my Exile on a drill press and drill it to accept the 3/8" rod

Even better for those who don't have access to a metal lathe.:cool:

Well, the one I worked on was trouble right off the bat. One, the owner's stab didn't have a bolt long enough to get through the mounting hole and into the quick disconnect barrel nut. Two, using a longer arrow rest bolt we got the thing tight, but really had to hold the STS in place until the bolt was dang tight. So the owner left to find a longer bolt for his stabilizer.
