    Default 2012 Martin Silencer Pro w/ Fury XT single cam-convert to HybriX?

    That's the question- can I install the Hybrix 2.0 cams on this bow, and then use the stock strings and cables that are used on this bow when its equipped with the nitro cams?

    The short answer is yes you can. However, you may need to change limb deflection as well to reach a specific draw weight as the leverage of the cams are different. That, and the cost of replacing the cams is high enough you would probably be better off picking up a good used Silencer with the Nitro cams already on it and be ahead price wise....

    Not worth the cost it to do it. The cams on their own are expensive and you'd possibly have to get new limbs and you would need a new string set. If you want Hybrix/Nitro cams, just buy the model with the Hybrix/Nitro.

    A complete cam set and strings retails at $403...you would likely pay much less at most shops but it would still be significant.


    OR...you could find the oldest, most broken, outdated Martin bow from a pawn shop or yard sale for $10-$20...give me a call at 800-541-8902. I can offer you up to $175 trade in credit towards a 2012 Silencer with nitro cams and you'd be looking at a brand new bow for $375 + shipping.

    okayyyy.....
    I'm convinced-it's not such a good idea.
    I'm going to purchase either the silencer or the cougar with nitro cams.
    I have an '09 Alien X with the Hybrix 2.0 cams and it just shoots beautifully.
    Thanks for the (sobering) info.

    Really debating this trade in business ... Is $175 a flat rate for all bows or is there a sliding scale of some sort?

    So far it's a minimum of $150-$175...doesn't really matter what bow you trade in. It has more to do with what quantities and models are available, margins, planetary alignment, if I'm in a bad mood, etc.. For an Exile the discount was $150...for the Onza it was about $175. We're pretty much down to Pantera and both cam versions on the Silencer.
