    Default Info needed on Shadowcat string length

    i had to swap out my shadowcat limbs and sent my old limbs with the string and cable length info on them without writing the info down.

    its a 2010 model with the 41.5 inch ata.

    anybody know what they are supposed to be?

    If you go by the chart and are trying to get down to 27" DL then the chart is incorrect. You have to add about 1/8" to the cables to get it close to the correct DL. My Shadowcat as it came from the factory was about 3/4" long on the DL. With the mods in the 27" hole the DL was 27 3/4". Had to take 3 twists out of the cables so I could get it to 27.5" DL and that is with the mods set at 27".

    I guess no one wants to reply to my post. I guess it is because anyone with a Shadowcat knows that I am correct.

    the chart lists the ATA on the shadowcat as 39 inches. my sc measures 41.25 inches. i assume that chart won't work with my bow, right?

    (just got off the phone with Joel. he cleared it up for me.)

    So what are the correct string and cable length's according to NOV RUT?

    These are the current lengths on the website. So where is the change? The cable length is still wrong if you want to get the DL down to 27".

    Do you have any idea what the cable and string length's should be if one was to build a set of cables and string to get the true DL?
