View Full Version : Martin Bengal CCS and Cam

08-30-2010, 05:44 AM
I have just started shooting my 2008 Bengal a lot. I have already noticed the string fraying some at the CCS. Also, the string is clearly rubbing more against one side of the cam?
I know I have read some on the forum about this before. I'm looking for some tech advice or a refresher on this topic.
I bought the bow last fall as a total package, so all I've done is sight it in.
Not sure what I can do about this or if it's something that I shouldn't be too concerned about?

thanks for any help,

I would get the area where the cable is running thru the CCS served and also serve the string that rolls over the idler wheel.

seems like there has to be something causing the misalignment though..

Wheels, I would get that string replaced. That's more than just a bit of fraying to me. I'd also check the cams for a rough edge hiding somewhere when you have the string off. There's gotta be something snagging that somewhere. If you find a burr on the cam or CCS, just sand it down with some 600-800 grit paper, or an emery board. That should solve your problem. I just bought a new string and cables from H&M for my Firecat, and it was only $45, shipping included. Everything was served where it should be, and a very nice set of strings overall. Took about 2 weeks from the day I ordered them until they showed up. Pretty good turn around, good price, and great product. Can't ask for more.

also need to get the lean out of the idler wheel , by twisted your yoke cable on one side.
