Why were the TRG/SOS taken off of the 2011 Shadowcat?

where did you find this information? It still shows that it is equipped with the set up on their website.

I found that two places:
1) Archery talk had posts stating it was gone and...
2) on the Martin website at:
http://www.martinarchery.com/2011/shadowcat.php

on the website it does not show the trg/sos or write about it being on the Cat.

hmm, thats weird. It still shows it equipped with them i the picture. I don't understand why they would do that.

For those that are curious, I removed the normal cable guard on my 2010 Shadowcat and installed the new TRG and SOS and it works fine. I have been using it for a couple months now with no issues.

The only thing I have noticed on the TRG is that it does wear the cables more if they are not wrapped like they should be for a roller guard. I would suggest wrapping the cables with HALO just like you would for a roller guard. This will make it more durable where they rub through the TRG. Just my experience after 2 months of use.

Really, you get a pic with TRG and SOS attached? The pic I get when I click on the link looks like the same pic as the 2010 Shadowcat.

once you get to the Shadowcat page, then click on the bows on the right and another page will load and it does show the Shadowcat with the TRG and SOS.

ah ha! joan-who-says-she-used-to-work-for-Martin informed me that the TRG and SOS wouldn't fit my 2010 Shadowcat.
So, have you noticed any benefit justifying the cost of the modification?

Yeah, weird. Of the link, the details note the rise machined from a solid block, as in no more 3 piece riser. And in the 2011 catalog it says the same thing, solid block aluminum riser, but then shows the TRG/SOS.

If you order a TRG and SOS kit, it will work on the 2010. That is all I did and it works fine. Now I will say that the specs for the 2010 show 7 1/2" BH will the 2011 is 7 3/4". I don't recall what mine is set at exactly, but again, the TRG/SOS does work on mine. I don't see or notice a difference either way. I just put it on there to let it do what it is suppose to do...eliminate torque on the cams...mine were running straight to start with. Either way, I see no issues.

As for the details stating it is machined from a solid block, that is true. The fact that it has a 3 piece riser is also true. You have to separate the two statements. The riser is 3 pieces. Each machined from a solid block of aluminum. They still use the 3 pieces. They don't say otherwise. What they are stating is that the riser is machined from a solid block of aluminum and not forged, or stamped, etc. But each piece is machined from a separate solid piece of aluminum.

Hmmmm...not fitted? does that mean they cannot be fitted? i'm really getting confused with this.

Does your SC have the "bent" cable rod like mine?

My 2011 SC did come with the TRG/SOS, in fact I ordered them cloaked. Now dont go getting all worked up you camo-haters out there. If you don' tlike the look of camo, then you don't have to look at all. To each his own.

later ones definitely don"t have the trg sos fitted. ( my guess is it's to do with the cable post clearance issue on the 1.5 cams at longer draw) if you draw less than 29 inch on the cat 1.5 a retrofit will work.Don't know about the no 2s. P.S bent rod on my 2010
