    No problem. Welcome to MTF. I recommend that you have a Martin dealer take a look at your new bow once you get your rest and sight put on. If you don't have one nearby, Take a look at Nuts & Bolts Book. it's free. I printed it out and placed it in a binder. It's always at the ready when I need something Archery related.

    We are all here to help. More info on the set-up, etc will be let everyone provide more info for you to make things even better. What arrows are you shooting/spine/length/tip size - what draw# and length are you going with?

    From there a good amount of information can be giving on where to start with things and how to get things in tune so they are shooting lights out. My Cheetah, not the highest end bow out there, I would put that up against any other bow from any other company any day of the week. Why, because I know the thing inside and out and have it dialed down perfectly for me.

    could be a few things... first I'd look over the limbs, see if there's any obvious signs of cracks, maybe even take a cotton ball and just wipe them down; if it tears the cotton ball up you may have micro-cracks

    second, look at the wheel (top) see if it has any noticeable lean one way or the other. If it does you can take the buss cable on the high side off and give it a twist or two to bring it even, or let out a twist or two on the other. (you'll need to either press the bow to do this or turn the weight on the limbs down until you can pull them off by hand.

    Last would be to take the limbs off, and grease the contacts, barrel nut and bolt with white lithium grease...

    Default squeaky

    Was just going to dab a little 3 in 1 oil on the pully or do you think that's a bad idea i originally put the bow together and took it to a very well known shop to have it tuned and the guy who tuned it put the d loop in the wrong place and just said ok looks goods and sent me on my way i don't want to bash the place i took it but i sure won't take it back granted he wasn't a Martin dealer and he was in a hurry but still

    Default top pully

    Ok i looked at the pully and it is straight from what i could tell so i just used a dab of that 3 in 1 oil on both sides of the pully right where the shaft goes through the pully and the squeak went away i can't wait to shoot again cause i had the rest and d loop redone and leveled it was way out of whack it was amazing it even shot at all

    One other thing to keep an eye on is the cable rod, I had this happen with my Cheetah and thought it was the idler wheel and also coming from the limb-pockets. The rod was a little loose so it made a creak when I cam to full draw as tension was placed on the rod as the cables came back.
