I have a Scepter II with Fury X cams, that I'm converting to Nitrous A cams,
and need some help with string and cable lengths, as near as I can guess the string is 55.5" and the cables are 44.75", as the Scepter II was not offered with Nitrous cams I'm guessing, could use some help!

For Nitrous cams

Shoot String length:
A Cams = ATA + 10.5"
B cams = ATA+ 13.5"
C cams = ATA + 19"

Cable length = ATA + 1.5"
(Same for A, B & C)

You might want to rethink how you post info...no offense. Just for example the A cam example would be 53.5" long, about 1.5" short. The 10.5" would however be what you would add to the cable length. Also its just my opinion but I get an better initial cam orientation when you make the string length 10.75" longer than cable for the A's, and 13.75" longer than cable for the B's.

good catch, I fixed it from "=" to "+"

thanks I'll try that on my next set!

Thats not the issue. The issue is the A/A + 10.5" for instance is still going to be lacking about 1.5" for the correct string length.

Ok, then it's shooting string 55.25", cables 44.5". thanks to Scepterman30x,
I was .25" long on both string & cables.

Correct... however you can use the specs you stated but your A/A will be a little on the long side.

say if I use the longer specs, won't that make the draw weight lower?

From my experience just a tad but not enough to make much of a difference.
