    anyone out there have a 2012 onza 3 that came with the cable rod & slide if so what are the string and cable lengths on the sticker, would like to compare them to the 2010 lengths on the sticker. if they are the same that means that martin doesn't think the conversion makes any difference. mine didn't all stayed the same. i think it is real important that when the string & cable lengths are checked it should be under 90 - 100 lbs. of tention then you may still have to ad or remove a twist or 2 to get the bow in exact time.

    I'm no expert, so I differed to Martin on this when I ordered the ccs and sts to replace the trg/sos on my 2011 onza 3, they told me the bow was designed to have the ability to be set-up either direction. I had no problems out of my conversion!

    I know you asked about a 2012, my 2011 is string 59 3/4" cables 38". Not sure how that compares to your 2010, or a 2012!

    Bowgramp, I think you may be mistaken about the year of your Onza... The Onza 3 didn't come out until 2011!

    Bowgramp the numbers may reflect that your bow was atcually built in 2010 even though it's is a 2011 model. Does yours have the riser cut to accept the standard sts, mine was not and after messing with a frontmount I decided the bbow just did'nt feel right. Shipped it back to martin for a riser swap, string change and will comunicate on it when it returns to me.

    Ok, that makes sense. Even though it was produced at the end of '10, I don't think the specs would have changed... I'll check mine and see if the strings are the same length.

    LOL what do you know, mine was also produced in the end of '10. I didn't even order it until the end of April, and it came straight from the factory. Same string specs: 56 3/4 string 38 cables.
