the fuzion cam uses modules to shorten/lengthen the draw length. You can get a full set of modules from Martin for less than $15 or you may get lucky and someone on here might have the module you need. What is your draw length set at now,and what does it need to be? On the module,there will be a designation such as "F5" which,I think,is 29" draw. But I don't remember for sure.

as was stated,pics of your cam and module will help. Once we get it all figured out,youll be cuttin' X's w the best of 'em. There are several guys on here shootin Jaguar Mags. Your in good hands. Stick around. Welcome to the forum.

Hi fellow Buckeye. The f6 appears to be 29" according to Martin. Try Martin archery website, go to tech info, at bottom of info click 2010 and older specs. I see fuzion listed at 2003. I believe the 1,2,3 pegs on cam are for fine tuning to the 1/2 inch after you find the correct module. F1=25, F2=26,F3=27,F4=28,NO F 5.. F6=29 and F7=30. This is listed for Jag Mag specifically. Again the chart shows 2003 not 2005 but I would guess the fuzion cam is the same.

F-1 f-2 f-3 f-4 f-5 f-6 f-7

25" 26" 27" 28" * 29" 30"

The Jaguar doesn't use the f-5 module.

You are correct. Peg 1 is a half-inch longer than what the module length is, and peg 3 is a half inch shorter than what the module length is. So right now, the bow has a draw length of 28 1/2".

If you have the F-6 module and are on the 3 peg, as AS stated your at 28 1/2". To shorten your DL, you need to go down in number on the module. I don't know how short you need to go, but since F-5 is not used, you will need an F-4 or F-3 depending on how short you want to go. If you do not have the module set that came with the bow when it was new, you could buy a set for a few bucks, trade with someone, or most shops should have a bunch of modules they could switch it for you. Good luck, and welcome to the forum. I have a 02 Cougar Mag with the Fuzion Cam.

I need the Dl to be 27 - 27 1/2 Its what I need. So I am thinking i need the F4 module. from what i am reading yes ? And some one said that the modules are in a package ? Is this correct ?

Yes if you bought the bow new, you should have received all the modules. If you didn't or bought the bow used, you can buy a set (Martin website lists them at $13.33 for the set), you could find someone that has the module you need, or you could go to the shop and see if they have one to swap with you.

If you don't have a shop nearby, or do not get anywhere with a new thread, try the classifieds on Archery Talk if you are a member over there, or even on Ebay I have seen some modules. I don't know if you would have any luck at a Dick's or Cabela's but you could try there too.

I've got quite a few extra mods on hand here, let me know which one you need.

The Fuzion cam was only made through 2003. 04-05 models would have had the Dyna cam.

How did you determine your draw length?

5'4" with a 27 or 27 1/2" draw length seems a little high doesn't it? :confused:

Sorry Hit The X, I made a mistake. Archerx7 is right. I gave 2005 specs, not thinking that the Fuzion cam was not made in 2005.
Check the serial # on your limb sticker, and the first two digits will tell you your bow year.

Unless you have ape arms then 27" is pretty long. You could measure your wingspan to get a close approximation of what you shuld be shooting. Wingspan divided by 2.5

For instance, I'm 5'8" tall and have a wingspan that matches;
68" divided by 2.5= 27.2. For some reason my most accurate draw length comes out to 27 1/8" as measured on my bow. Pretty close if you ask me. It doesn't always work out that close for others and that a good reason to have a bow that is adjustable.

Let Me reassure you I do not have ape arms . Not in the least. I have checked and rechecked my draw length and that it is what it is . I have done ot the way you explained and the DL comes out short and hard to shoot.

Therre are alot of variables in DL like the length of the release, How you wear that relese, how big your hands are and finger length. Also the final resting point of your draw . ( where it feels good to you ) I was taught to shoot with an old LONG BOW so I use a rear draw and a late anchor point, to get as much power as I could out of the long bow. I have come to realize that using these technics are not for the newer Compound bows. Now but I still use every one of the same things I did whith a long bow so it makes my DL longer

I thank you for your consern and worry. But I assure you I did and am doing thimgs as I know how we are all human and do things differently. I do what works for me . And I am pretty good at it.At my 3D shoots I am pretty much one of the better shooters on the line. Hunting Well lets just say My freezer is not Lacking and never has since i started to hunt at the ripe ole age of 13 Years old.

Hit the X,

As I said in my last sentence, using any of the various methods of measuring doesn't always work for everybody. We don't have the luxury of seeing you shoot or knowing your or others experience level so this was just a suggestion based on 4 decades of shooting compound bows. There was a time when I shot 28 3/8" draw and maybe I shrunk over the years, but I eventually got down to what fits me, not basedon some measurement but how much more accurate I am now and how steady the bow holds and aims. I have tried to extend back to 27 1/2", which I shot for some years, and find that I can't control the bow worth a hoot and that's only 3/8" longer than what works for me.

As I said, just a suggestion. I am aware that there are lots of variables. If what you are doing works for you then I'm not one to criticize.
