    Default Martin C4 Cougar with nitrous cams?

    Trying to build a smaller bow with the Nitrous cams as my cam system, and I have a 2007 C4 Cougar with the SE limb pockets laying around. Was wondering if I could get down to 28" draw with the C cam and what the string lengths would be? I can't seem to find anything

    Thanks,
    Jake

    Not sure what the draw length range would be for sure but I may have the thread lengths in my pile of misc scribblings or be able to figure them out for ya.
    That'll be 32" ata or a bit over correct.?

    Right around there I would assume...32-33. I need to be at 28" draw tho. And I don't wanna have to try to swap for B size cams cuz that'll take even longer.
    Spiker, if you find the string lengths and specs let me know ASAP!

    Thanks

    33.75"/52.75" should get you real close.

    And that's for a C4 Cougar with the SE limb pockets?

    At the very bottom of this link, is the specs for the C3 SE Nitrous.

    http://www.martinarchery.com/chart/2...t/nitrous.html

    You'll notice that the DL is the same with the SE limb pockets, and the three inch shorter ATA.
    The reason is that the SE has about two more inches of brace height.

    That means that it has two LESS inches of power stroke.
    And as a result, loses 20 FPS of IBO speed.

    If you can find a set of standard limb pockets, I'd recommend swapping.
    I'd also STRONGLY recommend trying to get a set of B cams for your DL.

    Got a set you wanna swap some "C" cams for? I Also have the C4...dont know how much of a difference that makes. Main reason is I want a shorter bow than what my SlayR currently is, as for the moment, I have gotten out of target shooting in favor of finishing of school. Im trying to convert a C4 Cougar with the SE limb pockets and M-pro cam into a Nitrous Cam setup because it should be more compact than the SlayR I currently use. I have never shot a cam system better than the nitrous cams, and they are the only cams (other than Hoyt's Spirals) that I can say are truly smooth as butter. they should give me more speed, and I know The bow will be a shooter if I can get the correct string lengths

    Thanks so far for everything
