    In October I called every single pro dealer listed on Martin's site in Michigan. Very few had any stock and fewer had anything 2012. No one planned on stocking much if anything in the future.

    In my case, this has brought the Z into spec in some areas. Out of the box it was too long ATA and failed to meet max draw weight rating. BH has always been 1/4" long. As far as performance and...

    I do it the opposite way by twisting the cables to advance one cam over the other (and wrap up both cams). I leave the string alone. The draw length and max draw weight will both increase. I then...

    Are you stating that the raw material is sourced from china but the limbs themselves are completely fabricated (from the foreign raw material) in the US? Or are these partially manufactured limbs...

    To answer your question earlier Lab Rat, I think I am still going to tune on the Z for a bit before getting into the Cat. I need to sit down and document what I have done and the results in a...

    Now that my shoulders are tired for the night....

    I opened the top gap with 5 more cable turns. Top gap is just shy of 1/8 and bottom gap is half of that. Draw weight between 62 and 63 on scale...

    27 really is my optimal draw length, very comfortable for me. 28 stretches me out too far, almost to the point where I have to lock my elbow and that isn't a comfortable shooting style for me. I...

    I seem to hang onto things. My Pro Safari was a birthday present in the 80s.... I shot it for years and through college leagues, etc and finally upgraded to a cougar 2000 in 2001. I still have the...

    DONE and DONE... Good thing for the adapters too. On the Z it is a real PITA to get the blocks through the limbs ahead of the cams... FC should be easier. Pressed the Z tonight to open the cable...

    I was looking at this portable press. Is there any issue with cam to limb cam pocket clearance to get the portable's T ends through? For the money it looks handy and I may have to own one by the...

    So we need to modify some numbers, for the better. When I buy a bow I have the seller (store) pull it on a scale @ max weight and then turn it out one turn and pull, then a second and pull. This...

    Not knowing specific differences between the 1.5 and 2.0 I cannot answer that.

    I will be giving the FC a good inspection (in regard to some of what Lab Rat was speaking of) and see how it is...

    I think if I can work something out to make the grip more comfortable I will be GTG on her. Maybe the thermal grip Martin offers will do the trick.

    Should be able to order it right from Martin. Check their online store. They had a few different STS models listed when I was browsing earlier today. Don't remember if the carbon was there or not.

    Cougar, for me, has a superior grip, but I have small hands. The one thing I don't care for on the Z is the pierced grip but that is subjective and you aren't contacting the side surfaces when you...

    I would venture to say out of the box my Cougar is quieter than my Z. Not a lot of difference but a slightly noticeable amount.

    The biggest noise maker on the Z was the string from the limb...
