    I'm sure that you could swap risers, as Martin bows seem to morph into all sorts of Frankenbows, so a one year updated riser should be no problem. Of course, we'll all want to see pics of the change. Perhaps you might give Martin a call and check on string and cable specs to be sure.

    I had a friend who ran over his hoyt alphamax a few years back...I guess bows dont fare too well with a 3/4 ton pick-up backing up over them.

    As for the riser, swap...Im sure you could do it easily...However, you will be paying a pretty penny for that riser...I know firsthand if I did something to mess up one of the risers on my bow...I would be in automatic franken-bow mode...not gonna lie, something makes me wanna swap the cams off my warthog for the nitrous cams on my slayer...but thats too much time, which i dont have a lot of right now....

    Anyways, sorry about the rambling...check the AT classifieds, find a martin riser, could be one from this year, last year, 5 years ago...play around with the possibilities if you would like...but on the other hand, just give Martin a call, Im sure they would bend over to make sure you get ur bow up and running ASAP

    After shooting nitrous cams, its easy to understand why you'd want them on your Warthog.

    Not that I have anything against the CAT 2 Cams...in fact I love them too, User friendly, and can be TUNED for smoothness...however, the Nitrous on the other hand...no tuning to make them smooth, and speed is more than impressive with them. I wish i had something to work off, like cam size needed, modules, string lengths, etc. to make my warthog franken bow...it would be an awesome project...

    Not a difficult conversion.String/cable lengths are really easy to figure.

    Difficult part is tearing apart a Slayer to get the Nitrous cams. Saw some for sale in the classifieds, C's and B's, for a C note!
