    I don't know if you're still looking for one or not but I recently put my 1-owner 2008 Firecat up for sale on AT. I'm selling it only because I bought another bow recently and don't have a need for...

    Thanks Ehunter. That's about as close to a 1 for 1 comparison as I've read about. Your assessment of somewhat smoother draw sounds like what I've read from others too. As such I'll keep using the...
  3. Thanks everyone for your feedback and...

    Thanks everyone for your feedback and experiences. Last night, just to make sure my DL and DW were indeed accurate I had my wife measure my DL while I was a full draw. Even though I was told the bow...

    Thanks for that feedback. You didn't notice any speed difference but did you notice anything else, like smoother draw cycle or more consistent shots and grouping?

    One of the best true stabilizers I've found and used is the B-Stinger. Its main purpose is to help the shooter hold the bow steadier so the sight pin doesn't dance around the target erratically like...

    Another thing to consider is that "super glue" is anaerobic (cures in the absence of air) and works best with non-porous surfaces. Rubber, being somewhat porous, isn't the best material to use super...

    Thanks for the quick feedback guys. I've kind of wondered if the slightly more pleasant draw cycle of the Nitro cam is due to it possibly not being quite as aggressive as the CAT cam. Do either of...
  8. How do Barnsdale limbs compare to Martin PowerTough limbs for speed

    OK everyone, after months of doing "honey dos" around the house, I finally got to shoot my hunting arrows through my chronograph this past week to check the speed. Just to get everyone up to date, I...

    I know this is a little late for helping but I've used Helicoils before in automotive applications and they worked very well. The main issue with elcid99's problem is the size he needed to repair, in...

    Novich, making your own bent cable guard rod isn't hard to do. If you have a bench vice and hacksaw (the 2 primary tools needed) you can make them using 3/8" aluminum rod from home improvement...

    I'm not trying to sound snide but if they were to have kept the standard mods from my original CAT cams they replaced recently just for cases like this, they might be able to send your those. The...

    I can attest to the new company not having much more than empty buildings with little to no parts for older bows. I was very lucky to have had my 08 Firecat almost completely rebuilt the first of...

    To continue with my update here are a few more pics. I'm almost finished as about all I need to do now is serve the string where the new dual string stops contact the string and replace the moleskin...

    Sorry for taking so long to update this thread. With warmer weather and a long honey-do list I had to divert attention to things other than my bow. So, without further adieu, I want introduce my...

    Interesting that this topic comes up about the same time as I'm finishing up my recently rebuilt 08 Firecat (thanks to the new Martin company). I've had dual string stops before but got some...

    Here's a little more info since my last post. I tied my D-loop on and measured the draw weight as it came from Martin. It maxed out slightly above 73-lbs. I turned the limb bolts out a couple of full...

    My bow is back and appears to be in good shape! After getting the box in the house and opening it and seeing that it was in one piece and appeared to be in good shape overall, I called Martin Archery...

    Well, according to the FedEx tracking system my bow should arrive at home today. My wife will be there to receive it and will carefully open it to see if it made the trip in one piece ;>). I can't...

    Very nice accomplishment. Those birds look like they really put on a show for you before you put the hammer down.

    You make some good points, Barry. The way I started into this was to get the shop where I bought the bow involved, figuring they already had reasonably good connections and rapport with the...
