    I see the STS seems to be designed for more adjustability. Looks like a mounting block similar to the original STS. Not so sure I'm in tune with the CCS roller system. My 2010 Alien Z has it and it pulls the cables too far to the side. Guess we'll see.

    I like the flex options you see from some of the other manufacturers, but I've seen some guys say they place a small shim where the CCS mounts to kick out the front of it a little more so the back end comes in a little close not pulling the cables out too far.

    Yes, I would say that was the IBO for 2012 as well. They seem to have been overrated by at least 5fps.

    Say this will replace the current Nemesis model. Anyone else notice the difference in the cams? Looks like a new design for this year?

    Default Martin archery in 2013

    I don't know if all the 2013 models have gone away from the stabilizer quick disconnect and have gone back to steel inserts. But I do know that several have.

    I did that with my Alien Z. Used a small 1/8" spacer. The angle changed called for me to ream the front hole in the riser and use a longer screw, but it did seem to help with both the cam lean and smooth out the draw cycle.

    I'd bet it's just more metal out of the center to lighten them up. From what I see of the pics it looks like the same module as the last 3 years.

    I had heard they were going back to steel bushings for the stabilizer. It would be one of those OLD way of doing things that didn't need to be changed. Much better than the QD slot and/or a drilled and tapped hole in the riser

    The IBO for the XT cam was stated as 320-330 for 2012. For 2013 it's 315 which is a more realistic figure as few people could even get close to 320 let alone
    330. Frankly I would rather see the lower figure that is more honest rather than some high number that can't be achieved. Personally I'd like to see the ATA step in and do away with the IBO specs as they are. I'd rather see them require bows to be rated at specs that represent the average archer; 60#, 28" draw, and 350 grain arrow. That isn't going to happen any time soon though because nobody is going to accept lower speeds. Many are still wishing and hoping for 400 fps to be reached. They can't fathom dropping down to something closer to 300 again---God forbid we go backwards.
