I have just pought a Martin compound bow with a broken string. How do I determine the model of the bow ans the length of the string required? the limb has the name PRIDE out near the cams.

Single or Split Limb?

Did i say single? I forgot how to call the opposite of split limb. Hmm...

The limbs are split right to the riser and on closer examination the bow is called a PRIDE Twin Limb XRG

So you should have one of those rare split limb bows that martin poroduced around 1996-1998. Maybe you should call the customer service with that information. They should be able to look up what the correct length as. I have to say that i am not able to help you any further.

Edit: If you could find out which cam you are using i may be able to help you... Can you post a picture so that dbd or someone else can identify the cam?

Honestly fellows. This bow was made long before I came on board with Martin so I haven't a clue. That where I have to pay attention and learn from some others.

I've only been with Martin for four years and because there isn't much of a following in these parts never really apid much attention to Martin bows, sorry to say.

Most of my knowledge is based on experience with many different brands of bows and is general in nature. Such as tuning----the process for tuning is almost identical for all the bow made over the last 35 years. A few quirks here and there, but not that much different.

Great pictures.

C'mon fellas, ya'll know what cam this is; it is the original "Fury" cam...

P.S. since it has a "4" on the cam it lets me know that it is the #4 Fury cam and the length of the string on this cam is going to be 18" longer than the cable length....

And lastly just so you know this cam is draw length specific.

So let us see...

Draw length 30
Cam Number 4
String length 56
Cable length 38

I hope we could help you. :)
