    Default Big thanks to Brandon

    Just wanted to send out a big thank you to Brandon at Martin tech repair. Joel was away in meetings, and Brandon stepped in and took care of a bow that had been "lost". Got it back yesterday, and this thing is a shooter now. 2008 Firecat updated to 2012. They did their typical great job, and a VERY fast turn around time once the bow was "found". Thanks Brandon and Martin!

    Ya, I've seen a few of these on AT, 2008-10 Firecats with 2011/12 limbs/cups and Nitro 2.0 cams... You'll have to let us know how it shakes out, and how it compares to the CAT cams!

    my buddy with the firecat blew another limb, and ended up with nitro 2 cams on his 2010 fc. got the bow back from martin with new limbs, and the nitros. first thing he did was check the timing, and it was ok, so he shot over the chrono and it derailed. he put the string back on and shot again and it derailed again.... after the third time he sent it back to martin..... and the sent him a differnt bow with a blown bearing.... hes currently waiting for new cams...... he hasnt got to shoot any shoots this year.....

    Got about 40 shots through it so far, and this thing shoots! Seems plenty fast, VERY accurate, and quiet, even without limbsavers on it yet. Still need to do a good tune, but want to get 150 or so shots through it first, let things settle in. Just so you know it's actually a real bow, here's the pics guys. lol 100_0729.JPG100_0730.JPG

    very nice! How does it seem to compare to the old setup?

    Actually, it's significantly quieter, zero hand shock, and even though I haven't put it through the chrono yet, I think it's faster than the original set up. Put the HHA sight on it, and this is the first bow that had me using factory tapes that had markings out to 80 yards. I'm guessing this is shooting right at 300fps. That's at 28.25 true draw, 59#, and a 364 gr. arrow. Plenty smoking fast, and it's the quietest bow I own. Can't say enough good about it. One conversion that is well worth having it done. I did change out the string stop and tossed some Monster Jax on the limbs. I doubt you could even hear this thing from more than 6-8 feet away. I'm talking quiet.
