I have to replace the String and Cables of my Cougar 3
It's a 2004 with Elite limbs, Nitrous X, B cam. In the spec string is 56 3/4 and cable 43. Is that ok ?
The string presently on the bow is 56 15/16 and cables 43 1/2 and they are twist to the max, i can't go to 43 with these.
I know there is two model of limbpoket. Is that can change the lenght of cables ?
Is BCY 8125 ok. or 452x is best. How many cable strand is the best. I'll appreciate your help. Thanks

The tech info chart on Martin's website show the same figures as you have. You could get new cables and just twist up the string, but I'd go with a complete set.

If you want the best instability then I'd use 452X. You could get the best of both worlds and use 452 for the cables and 8125 for the string. 8125 is just a tad faster, but should almost equal 452 for stability if the string maker does his job right.
