View Full Version : Cougar II cable/cam configuration

04-02-2011, 12:30 PM
Hey, I've posted a few threads here about restoring a Martin Cougar II, and I have the bow almost ready to roll. The only thing I need a bit of help with is figuring out how the cables are supposed to lay across the cams.

I think I have the cams in the right position for 50% let off. There was a guy named Proto57 that posted here with an identical set-up ready to shoot, but he was a guest and not registered, so I can't get in touch with him.

I have a few pictures of the bow the way it is now; the first two are the top cam, second two are the bottom cam.

Thanks a bunch.

Not quite sure what you are asking, but let's look at the first photo. The cable needs to be wrapped counter clockwise on the wheel. You have to put the teardrop through the limb fork and up over the top of the wheel. Just opposite for the bottom.

Does this help?
