I'm thinking of putting together a Slayer with 13" Mag limbs and Fury cams. (I've always been partial to the Fury cams.)

I'm looking to end up with 29"/60#. I don't have complete access to all the older Martin specs, but my best guess would be to use the specs for the Cougar2000, but go up 1 cam size. So, would 4M limbs, a #3 Fury cam and string/cables 56.5"/41" sound about right as a starting point?

Any input accepted, without blame if it's wrong.

On a Slayer with 13" limbs, your brace height using Fury cams will be around 5 inches :eek: The Slayer w/ 13" limbs came with the Nitrous C cams, with the ~1 inch "lobe" on the back, and had a brace right at 6". The B or A cam Slayers had 14" limbs to give an acceptable brace height, since their rear "lobes" were smaller than the C cams. Since the Fury cams have no rear lobe, such that the string will be just behind the axle at the limb tips, you won't have a workable brace height. The 14" limbs would probably still be under 6"
