    Default How to properly install martin sts.

    I have a 2010 martin cheetah bow and i need to know how to properly install the sts on it. I cant seem to get the set screw to hold it properly over time, so what can i do to fix this and how did you install yours? I dont see why martin didnt just put threads in the riser like every other bow manufacturer out there. The set screw is a stupid idea in my opinion. Anyways, how do i get it to hold properly? Thanks.

    I don't know exactly what the problem is with your mounting it. I simply inserted the sts in the hole and adjusted it and tightened the set screw. It is still in the same place it was when I installed it.
    Could it be the painted surface on the rod?

    My problem is that over time it becomes loose and has some play up and down.

    Has the set screw have any play in it? Mine didn't. How loose is the sts in the riser hole? Mine wasn't. Is it a Martin sts or after market?

    Here is what we have done in the past on ones that loosened up. In the area on the sts rod where the set screw touches. Take a file and put a light 1/4" wide flat spot. Go to a hardware store and get a slightly longer set screw. This will give it more pressure and keep the rod from moving.
