    Nice selection, a lot of happy Z owners out there. Another happy group are all the people who shoot with HHA's sliders, quite a few on this site do. Other great brands as well. Sliders have a single pin and offer an otherwise unobstructed view of your target.

    Photos coming. Bought some ammo and the rest to dress it today. I put a limb driver pro V on it but i am not sure i like it. It realy rings and the vertical string is close to the CCS and the Copper John sight. Tossed a few arrows tonight to get a quick feel. Just have to tune it and get a new release if I am going to shoot a D loop. My old tru fire is a close on contact type for strings.

    Is it just me or are the Hybrix limbs steeper than the Nitro 2 cams? Same poundage and these Hybrix seem to really require me to put me into getting them up to the plateau.

    On a separate note, what would I give up by going with nitro 1.5 vs 2.0 on say a cougar? Is there a good discussion on it here?

    What is the best layout for a d loop? Serving sets inside so you don't pinch the knock?

    The link above is from a thread on Archerytalk by nuts and bolts. I think it's a must have download for any archer. It's free. Download it and buy a cheap binder and keep it for reference. I think everything Archery related is in it.

    check out theses links on D loops. theres links in it on how to tie D loops.

    I downloaded the nuts & bolts and put it on my kindle, so I always have it to refer to. It is a pdf file, so it works on the kindle.

    Looks like i am going to be the care taker of a 2012 Cougar FC 60lb RH Nitro 1.5 cams next G1 camo in a few weeks. Not that i need two bows but what the heck. Did some horse trading and my dealer gave me an attractive price so this one didn't cost me anything out of pocket. Martin has to build it so it will be a few weeks in arriving.

    What will i be giving up going with the 1.5 vs 2.0 cams, all else being equal. I went with 1.5 cams so i could be in the middle of the dl range rather than right at the bottom of adjustment.

    That's a good looking bow Rootsy. There's a tone of info that I'm still absorbing even to this day. N & B keeps updating it too. So check out the thread from time to time for updates. Another good download is the Easton arrow tuning and Maintenance guide. Thanks for the pics...we love pics. We wish you the best.
