No problem. It's a Nitrous cam. Should be marked with an A, B, or C. "A" being the smallest. "C" the largest. Comparing it to the Elite limb it looks like an "A" nitrous cam.

the bow is a pro series would the limb still be an elite limb...and would you have any idea of the draw length range?

I'll look and post back, but you should be able to find this info on Martin's home website in the Tech Info section. And yes, these are Elite limbs.

OK, 25" to 28" draw length. String length is 47 1/2" and cable is 37".

Does this match the limb sticker?

Don't rub it in, John.

A question was asked. Which cam is better. Most people prefer the Nitrous. It's predacessor was the Fury cam. The Fury cam was not draw length adjustable, a feature many people like, thus the Nitrous cam along. As I understand it many people liked the draw cycle of the Fury cam more than the Nitrous. So the Nitrous bit the dust and the Furious cam about. It's supposed to be an improvement using the best features of both the Fury and the Nitrous.

I never had the pleasure of shooting Fury cams, nor have I shot the Furious so I personally can't comment about which is better or why.

It's an obsession, and a curse!

I have Furious cams on my P3/Magnum and will likely install them on the P3/Elite I got off someone here.... I find the draw cycle to be quite "harsh" it ramps up very fast and has a very short holding valley. VERY fast and "punchy" compared to the Nitrous. They are fine for me, and I prefer them... but my daughters and wife dislike them for the same reasons I like them and shoot Nitrous-X (they tried them on Tigress/Elite and ShadowCat/Elite and even a Cheetah w/14"magnum limbs...)

Would the letter to identify the cam be on the cam or the mob?

It is on both cams. Look for a letter with the size of about .5" . It should be in the section of the cam that is pointing to the other cam.

I've posted my dislike of the Furious before; in my humble opinion they should scrap them and bring back the Nitrous.

Some have a letter and some do not. Either way if they have the round cable attachements on either side of the cam then it is a NOS A cam. The NOS B and C cam have one tear drop shape under the string groove on each cam.
