    Default hybix cam pro mods?

    had a friend, previous martin pro staff shooter, tell me martin made "pro mods" for the hybrix cam system. apparently it changed the draw cycle considerably. anyone hear of these or have any for sale?

    I've never heard of Pro mods, but maybe he was talking about bows in general. Back before the latest change in management, Matrin has two series of bows.. Pro Series, which were sold only in autherized Martin shops, and Gold Series, which were sold in big box stores..Cabela's, Bass Pro, Gander Mountain, Sportsman Warehouse, and those type of stores. Could that have been what your friend was talking about?

    Can't say I've heard the term Pro mods and I've been a staff shooter for Martin since 2004. Martin came out with the Cat cam in 2008 which had two different size modules. The smaller was for up 29" on most of the bows and the long draw module covered from 29.5 to 30". Not sure just when the Hybrix cam came about, but it's basically a Nitro cam with Hybrix engraved on it instead of Nitro. At least from 2010 there were two size cams and they both used the same standard 80% letoff modules. The same modules are still in use today. No such thing as a PRO module to my knowledge.

    My 2010 Alien Z was delivered with Nitro cams when I got it. I called Joel about it and he was a bit upset that a Rytera bow would be built with Nitro (Martin) cams so sent me a set that were marked Hybrix. They were no different than the Nitro cams and used the same modules. Bow speced out the same and shot the same. That was then.

    Nice looking Z, really a shame that Rytera never used the anodized colors of the mid 2000's Martins.
