    I do agree that there is a normal wear factor with single cam bows ,most of it being with cable wear. The problem thats talked about most in this thread concerns mostly shooting string wear at the top end of the cam. Ive experianced this problem twice with my Pantera. The last time was just after a cam and string change. I found what seemed to be the problem area at the top of the cam, sanded and polished it..........so far it seems to have worked. Im carefull to keep lots of wax in that area and hope my luck with it continues.

    Call and find out whats going on, I had to send my Bear in for service a couple of years ago and it took forever, I called them and came to find out they accidently shipped it with the wrong address and it got stuck in limbo had to be returned to the factory and then reshipped, simple mistake it could happen to anyone, my point is get the facts before you jump to conclusions and go on a rant about customer service, Martin has a great reputation so I'd give em a fair chance

    Unhappy string wear

    This is a new 2 months old. been in shop for two weeks. New cam and string. shot about 60 shots same problem. Shop said they couldn't fix it they sent it to Martin cs They've had it a month.I think they 've had a fair chance. Only owned it 2 months. my hard earnrd money paid for this bow I think I have a right to want my bow back.

    A month is'nt all that much time when you concider the bow is traveling cross country, twice, your shop could'nt figure it out in two weeks, might be that the techs in Walla Walla are working hard on your bow, give it some time.......Just sayin.

    ^^ And if it is warranty it isn't going to cost you anything. Better than having to drop $70 on a new set of strings and if the cams are defective, they will be replacing those as well. Think of the cost that could be associated with this if you were shooting another brand that isn't as generous with their customers. I know not having the bow in hand really sucks, but for what they do for us, it is worth the wait in my opinion. Everyone here understands your frustration, but as Joel said once here - "you'll catch more flies with honey"

    My hard earned money just paid for a new Bengal as well, I waited 2 months to get it and if something goes wrong with it I'll send it back to Martin and wait to get it back, thats just how it goes, if you think it's taking too long quit whining about it and call them.

    Just want to check on this myself to prevent any wear if possible. I know you aren't going to be able to stop all of it, but any is good. How does this rotation look, I'm guessing it might be too far and that the tick near 1 should be parallel to the cable? **Edit** Figured out that the minus should not be parallel ... guess just trying to figure out what the correct "stop" would be for the cam rotation. Don't want to over do it.
