    well your cable is too short then, probably. take your cable off without untwisting it and see if it measures the same as the "split" measurement on the sticker on the bottom limb.

    If your BH is off check your axle to axle length most likely it isnt set to spec.Another thing you have to remember is the specs on martins web sight are not aproximent settings.Most bows come on or close to these,there not set in stone.

    Sounds like you're going to have to un-twist your string and cable. You do know that you don't need a press to remove string or cables on a Martin, right? Back out the limb bolts a few turns at a time equally, until you can see light thru the barrel nut in the riser. By that time the string will roll out of the cam or idler. Un-twist your cable until its the approximite length as stated on the lower limb sticker. Untwist the string, till its close to stated length. Reassemble.
