The Nitrous X system had a module on each side of the base cam. The cam was positioned in the middle of the limb fork and right down the center of the riser. Everything centered. There was about 1 1/2" between the cables, but if more was needed there was (is) a kit with longer axles (3 1/4") and spacers. Cables attached to one cam and attached to the opposite limb tip; two on each side. There was a following mostly among target shooters; not so much from bowhunters.
If a person didn't want to use X cables all that was needed was a pair of split (yoke) cables and a cable rod/slide and he'd end up with a standard setup. X system made it very easy to setup and tune (no mechanical torque). Some people even found that they could change or adjust cables by just pulling the cable on the opposite side of the limb toward the riser, unhook the one needing attention, and adjust or replace it. No bow press needed or turning out the limb bolts. I also might add that there were, at least to my knowledge, virtually no limb problems even though the limb tips were not reinforced.
Alas, this cam system was done away with after only 4 years (2004-2007) and replaced by the Cat cams and sorely missed by many, myself included.
I have a 2010 Diamond Iceman with the flex guard. bow is a shooter for sure, but hard on cables. I'm not convinced about the flexdeal on Martin bows, I remember the TRG/STS too well. I like what pse has done on their new bows. I am beginning to think buying a last year model of whatever bow has the least amount of problems is really the only way to go. Let the people with lots of cash be the testers for us on fixed, er diminishing incomes. For now I'll stick with what works, a carbon rod and slide.
Well just called Martin and my bow is there, but they won't know the "plan of action" until early next week when it is checked into the repair department.
I dont get how the TRG didnt work. If you look at Strothers bows from last year & this year, they all have basically the same thing. Confused as to why the TRG didnt work but Strothers did...
EDIT: I have the gray teflon slide in my Nemesis and it is better than the black slide that I originally had in the Onza, since it brings cables closer to the center, still providing ample fletching clearance.
Back on the main topic lol I got a call from Brandon over at Martin earlier today and was working but he left me a voicemail saying that he will be shipping out a REPLACEMENT bow when I call him back, Very pleased thus far with the customer service! Great work Martin.
