My names Jonathon, and im new to bow hunting & this forum. I currently am shooting a 2007 Bengal. Its a great bow, I like it alot. My friend recently purchased an updated 2008 Bengal that has a straight and short cable guard, as aposed to my long adjustable one. Would I be able to cut a few inches off of my cable guard without effecting the performance of my bow? I have already smashed my knuckles into my cable guard a few times just messing around with the draw.
