    take some fine sand paper and go over that area lightly until nice and smooth I had to do this to some bow modules.

    I put the onza in the draw board the other day to take a close look at where the cable sits in the module as it is drawn. what is happening is the cable guard tension pulls the cable off center from the can slightly so that the cable is not in the center of the module groove. this causes it to right along the beveled edge instead of in the center of the grove. with all the tension on the cable, i guess it is squishing the string and serving against this flat beveled surface, flattening it out. It is not too bad on the bottom cam because the cable distance is longer on the bottom since the cable guard is closer to the top cam. I guess the problem would be most obvious the shorter the axle to axle length the bow is. Looks to me the only cure for this is for martin to get ride of the beveled edge and to have wider tracks in the modules like other cams by other companies...I noticed the tracks on my hoyt is much wider and I have none of these such issues.

    where exactly are these edges located that you're suggesting that should someone sand to remove these sharp edges ? is it along the cam string track, or the actual mods themselves? also what grit sandpaper is recommended?
    is this procedure able to be accomplished with the strings still on it ?

    The part im talking about is the edge that is on module closest to cam I have a circle around it that whole edge can be sharp and cause serving wear so a light sanding is what I have done till its nice and smooth.I use a very light grit sandpaper maybe 180 or higher doesn't take a very coarse grit.

    Picture not very good.....
