    Default Can you upgrade old cam system , for new cam system?

    I have an older martin bow , with older cam , steel cable ststem. I am wondering, can I upgrade the cam system with the newer modern cam setup?

    It is a Firecat to be exact.

    A tentative no. The limbs might not be able to withstand the pressures generated by the newer effecient cams. Maybe a M-Pro or Dyna cam. But you would have to guess the string lengths yourself, which could result in a shortstrung bow whish will wreck it quickly, or an overstrung bow that will not perform. I would upgrade the whole bow. New Martins have very friendly price tags on them.

    The Firecat Riser is cast Magnesium. It is not safe with the newer cams. I have a Scepter II that I put together with Elite limbs and Nitrous cams. It is the most accurate bow I have ever owned.

    Also do a search on Firecat (you will probably have to go at least to page three to get to posts on the old Firecat) and do a search on the postes I have made. I have replyed to a few threads on the Firecat.
