I reciently purchased an old Firecat. Unfortunately the draw lenght is a bit to much for me. I need to be about 28". I believe that currently the draw is 30".
I can't seem to find the correct mods and my local bow shop, while being VERY helpful, has run out of options for now as it is of course ramping up to the season opener. I am attaching pictures to see if anyone can tell me what type of cams these are so when I go out looking further I can be sure to get the correct one. I found cams on the giant internet auction site but they say they are for "sonic" cams. My archery shop talked to a tech at Martin and he was pretty sure this is a 1988-89 aer Firecat with Fusion cams. The bow # is 71121.
I have attached pics of the cams. The bow currently has #4's. I think I need #2's but finding them is the trick. :rolleyes:

That's definitely not a Fusion cam. I believe that is an Energy cam - is that correct Barry?

Energy cam is correct.The #2 mod would make it a 28 inch draw.If you can post a pic of the mod I might have some around still

So here is a picture of the mod.
I sure hope you have one laying around in a box somewhere. :D
I am pretty sure I need a #2
Thanks for all your help!!

I know it says sonic but if you look at it it sure looks the the #4's match.
There is only a #3 but does this seem right??

They look like Energy Cam mods to me on the spec sheet I have the hole is not drilled in mod #3 just like in the link you posted its solid no big hole like the others.Now if he only had a #2 mod

BOWPRK -
Does the spec sheet you have show the dimensions of the mods?
I have struck out everywhere and I know a hobby machinist that might be willing to make some, assuming I can find the specs.
