I Called Martin today B fisher. To check if they still had the two part numbers you mentioned 612, 616. They told me that wouldn't be the way to do it. the best way would be a quick disconnect. They also told me that they don't use them any more. but the 2010 catalog shows some bows with them. :confused:
So what do you recommend to do?

One way. What I would use is a adapter thingy that came with a cheap sling (allen brand), has a longer thread. Or make something up yourself.

Not a perfect solution though. :)

Or drill it out and use a insert (helicoil). Never done it before but found this link:

Sometimes manufacturers use too short of thread for their stabilizers.

If the thread of the stabilizer hole isn't completely ruined you can put some teflon tape on the thread of the stabilizer to tighten it.

Huuutch! Were you reading my thread? I just explained what I did n didn't even strip out my threads. I drilled mine out to 7/16 so I can use a stainless steel bushing. Do it in stages. Each bit larger than the next till you get to 7/16. Stab hole is 5/16x24. 1st bit-21/64,2nd-23/64,3rd-3/8,4th-13/32,5th-27/64,and last-7/16. Insert SS bushing n forget ur problem forever.

That's because he gets his fingers going before his brain. There just isn't any help for DUMB. LOL.

Don't feel bad Hawg. I do it too, and so does everybody else although some aren't going to fess up. For instance take a look at the Belated Birthday thread. DUH!!!!!!!!

Wow a blast from the past. Hawg good thing that bow is long gone. Drilling out my new 2010 might not be a good idea. It will void the warranty. :p
