    Yea mine are both 1.5 Nitro, 60 lb max and set at 28.75, but the first one I received has a shoot string length of 58 3/4 and cable length of 44 5/8
    2nd one exact same specs say 58 5/8 and 44 5/8. No that the 1/8 make much of a difference just wondering what the correct one is.

    Are those 2 lengths what the strings actually measure or is that what is written on the limb stickers?

    Limb stickers. I have been shooting the bows for a couple of weeks and am ready to order new strings. I don't want to take the strings off both bows and measure because both have stretched.

    I looked for the 2012 specs on the Martin website and they have no string lengths listed. So, which bow is shooting better? The longer or shorter strung bow?
