    Default who's switching from TRG/SOS to cable rod/slide

    alot of talk about this subject lately and just wondering who's actually going to make the switch...FOR SURE. I really would like one or two of the TRG set-ups to tinker with in an attempt to figure out a workable solution for an innovative system that just needs some bugs worked out. I have one carbon rod,one aluminum rod,and one slide if someone wants to swap. I'm positive I can make it work. I've been builing my own mounts and brackets for years for my trucks,mowers,go karts,etc. I'm sure I can handle the task of making the TRG functional.

    I've switched, I'm trying to sell the bow and want to include the factory parts with it. If it doesnt sell for some reason, I have no use for it, so you could have it.

    it's only "fixed" until I get my hands on one. Then it will be repaired. Horizontal adjustment is what I'm thinking so the vanes have proper clearance

    Unhappy 2011martin pantera problems

    I switched to a slide/rod and have nothing but problems. The bow feels different at full draw and now I can't fully see my sight appiture. The first time I shot my bow after the swap I was shooting 18 inches low ar 50 yards, I adjusted my sights but can't seem to get the accuracy I was before. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Sounds like your draw length has changed. Do you use a peep sight?

    I like the innovation behind this, I think they just need to kick it up a notch and find a material that isn't going to wear down and cause the issue with the strings/cables that everyone is complaining about and experiencing.

    I would like to think there is another plastic/resin/something that will fit the bill.
