    Default String and cable lengths for a Phantom

    I have an old phantom that I am trying to setup with some non stock parts. I think the bow is an 01.
    The way it sets now i want to put a set of cougar se limbs (6L) and SE limb pockets. The phantom came with fuzion cam and would like to switch it out with a Vipro Cam (MPro). Does anyone know how to figure string and cable length for this project? This is just a winter project I have been working on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Bill, read his question more thoroughly. He wants to change to a completely different cam system. Now how much difference there would be I couldn't really say.

    Thanks for the info guys! Yes different Cam and Limbs/Pockets. Is there any way to figure this out?

    Try to PM LeEarl over on Archery Talk. He's done a lot of parts swapping and othe projects with Martin bows. Even if he hasn't done such a swap he still might have some sort of formula he goes by.

    Try JRH60 on AT. Best thing I can tell you is to look at some newer specs (Martin website) of bows with similar ATA using the Vipro or MPro cam and see what you come up with there. Doing such a project is a lot of trial and error. If you are changing from standard limb pockets to SE you can expect quite a change in the brace height. You might even call Joel at the factory and ask.
