Okay guys. I'm going to make the change once I get some answers and hopefully new cables and string from Martin. The TRG is tearing up my new set too.
Here is my question. Martin Customer Service says just swap out the parts and do nothing else to the cables. E.G. no twisting or shorter cables needed. During my conversation with CS and he said they are making all new bows with a cable slide instead of TRG and they are using the same cables as before and aren't changing anything. I told my local dealer that I have a cable rod and slide to convert and he says I don't want to twist up my cables as much as it would take and I need new shorter cables. Without having tried it I would agree. It would be a lot of twisting IMO.
For those that converted your bows over how much twisting did you have to do. How far apart are the twists? Did the cable act like a pretzel?
It all works good with little to no fuss. Don't worry about it. Read on below.
