    Default warthog frankenbow

    I am wondering if anyone can give me some insight on string and cable lengths and specs on a warthog with cat2 cams 14" 4H or 5H limbs.

    The string and cable specs should be about the same as stock. Maybe 1/2" to 3/4" longer, for both the cables and the string.

    All you are going to gain is 1" of BH and add an inch to the DL.

    The 14" limbs are square at the limb bolt end and will look rather funny on a Warthog, since it has the roto-cup limb pockets.

    adding that inch of dl is kind of what I am hoping for. I have a problem with blowing up limbs with a 31" draw.

    I also know that the first Slayers with C.A.T. cams were known to suffer limb failures. Now, all the C.A.T. cammed bows have reinforced (pinned) limb tips.

    I have blown up a set on a firecat and a warthog in less than a year. firecat had CAT cams warthog had CAT2 cams. Both sets of limbs had the reinforcement pin in them

    I would recommend a used Bullet-X with 14" limbs and Nitrous C cams.

    That will have a BH around 8", and a max DL of 31".

    pantera is to short for me. didnt like the ata on the firecat so it is sold. I am thinkin a scepter 4 with the 13" limbs and cat2 cams might be the ticket

    The Pantera is too short, but the Warthog isn't?

    I thought the ATA was exactly the same!

    By the way, I am referring to the 2007 model year. Before Martin changed to the Roto-cup limb pockets.
