    Mark, I can't remember, but did you ever get this problem straightened out? And if so what was done to alleviate it?

    i got the problem on my onza fixed by working with customer service [ joel ] he sent me a new set of cams with the thinner mods and the beveled edges. couldn't be happer ! just another note , i think the cams are ok , by replacing the mods on two other bows fixed them also , by useing the thinner mod gets the cam and mod grooves more inline with each other!

    I think you've hit it, cam misalignment. My cables are wearing exactly where they make the transistion. I'll call Joel tomarrow, bummer I'm 2hrs away from any Martin Dealers and they don't like working on Martins.

    I think I might see if I can shim the cams back to alignment. I have a set of strings, not that old that I'll have to replace.

    IMO your best and cheapest bet is to send the bow back to Martin and have them take care of it. One way shipping is a lot cheaper than paying the labor rate for a shop to work on your bow. The labor for the shop is not covered by warranty. They had my bow 8 days.

    Yes your all right, send it back I will. This bow has been a pita with the trg/sos and the riser not cut for sts etc. I will call Joel today and get his input. I was looking at buying another Martin bow but $ is short for us old disabled guys on SSI. Hope it gets back in time for me to take it Turkey hunting in late March.
