Hey,
I shoot the moab and have had pretty positive results with it.
I do have a problem with the STS on it though.
When i shoot every few shots the rubber sts comes bouncing off.
The string is not center (1/8" off) on the rubber sts due to my sts pole.
the pole is just a straight piece of aluminum.
I think the string might be osculating to much and grabbing the rubber off.
the rubber is starting to get chewed.
did anybody else get a straight sts rod in stead of the bent one?
sorry for the long post.
thanks guys,
G

i thought all the martin ones had the dog-leg one.

You can epoxy it back on but that won't guarentee it will stay. Somehow you need to get it centered. Maybe loosen it all the way up and try to slide a thin piece of hard plastic on the one side, then sock it down. Maybe that will be enough to center it. :)

Glueing won't fix the problem, the string must be in the center of the STS. If you can't do it, you'd better take a new STS with a bent rod or make one yourself using a bigger rubber stop (i've made my sts with a rubber tip of a cane, have no problems :D ).

I have a sneaking suspicion that you should have a dog-legged rod on the bow. The reason I say this is because most bows and single cammed bows in particular have the string groove offset to the left for a RH bow. The straight rod would put the string stopper in the center of the riser, but the string actually tracks to the left a little (about 1/8") for a RH bow.

Even on a dual cam or binary cammed bow the string tracks offset in referrence to the center of the riser. The only ones that have everything in the center are the dual cams with the X system such as the Nitrous cams.

Reserve the string.


Your serving looks terrible!


And yep, i have to agree with Barry. You are in need of a dog legged string stopper.

You have now three possible ways to get one:

1) Call your dealer or Martin and let them ship you one.

2) Buy a string stop from an aftermarket company.

3) Build yourself one (which is what i would do. Just for fun...)!


I think you really need the possibility to adjust your stringstop...

I think you should be using the sts with the dog leg in it

Just take the bow back to your dealer and ask him to call Joel at customer service and request a dog-legged rod. If he asks real nice and Joel is in a good mood he may even throw in a new string. If he doesn't it's no big deal. Just reserve the string you have.

You are at a point where you won't get anything unless you ask.

bend it to where it is centered or buy a dog leged one, when not centered the string goes past the rubber and on it's way back jerks the rubber off.
