Thanks Hutch. With the way these mods have turned out, and how effective they are, (I've shot them on 2 different bows. 2011 Firecat, and "08 Moab), Other than cosmetically, I don't think a doinker type end is neccessary. However, if using only 2 mods, it might not be a bad idea. I'll try that set-up, and let you know how it shoots. Gonna send them off to dipping tomorrow, so it'll be a week or two before I get them back. Found a company that uses Next G1 camo dip, so it'll match Martin bows perfectly.
Hey! Where'd the first pic go?
Okay! When can you ship for a test hop?
Suggestions: End to riser tapered or stepped down to give cleaner match riser. O-ring or rubber between stab and riser - no maring of riser, added grip. Removable end cap - rubber maybe - no clang if it hits metal, treestand or ladder.
Looking pretty good, where do I get one?:)
Elkslayer4X5, this is still a prototype right now. I am looking for someone to manufacture them, thinking maybe Martin might want to get in on it even. Going to talk to my local rep as soon as he gets back from the road, and see what his ideas are as well. Martin gets first shot at it, but if they aren't interested, I have a couple other places in mind. I'll keep you all posted when I find out more.
Sonny, I thought about narrowing down the riser end, but when it's on in front of a wrist sling, it looks pretty good. Also, not tapering it will keep the manufacturing aspect as well as the ordering and stocking aspects simplified. I thought about a rubber end cap or some sort, but wanted to see how well the camo dip silenced it against knocks before I worried about it. If nothing else, just a simple slip on end cap should work as long as it fits snugly. Thanks for the ideas!
