    Default Martin Cheetah string/cable length

    We have just acquired a Martin Cheetah bow and unfortunately the specs on the limb are unreadable.

    Riser length is 418 mm ( 16.46")
    Limbs are stamped 3H
    Brace height is 7.25"
    Axle to axle is 38"
    Cams are ZHL

    The bow need a new string and cables. The string and cables are very worn and the lengths above are probably not at factory specifications. Can someone please advise on lengths and specs?

    Any ideas about the year model?

    Thanks

    I missed the second half of your post. The limbs are wound right out and the draw weight is 36 lb. The holding weight is 14 lb.

    scepterman30x,

    I didn't realize there are two Cheetah models. I have the one that resembles this page...

    ... with the recurve on the limbs. My limbs are labeled "Martin Elite". Does this make a difference to the string/cable lengths?

    Yes, the cams are Z cams.
