    Default Ccs

    Hey everyone.

    Do any of you have the CCS on your bows? I just bought a cheetah and was thinking about putting the system on and was wondering what the opinions are?

    Thanks in advance,

    Ryan

    I've got it on my 09 Bengal it adds about 5lbs pull weight. I think it silences the bow a bit and cuts down on vibrations?? Some claim it puts to much stress on the limbs and should be used with a 1/2 longer cable?? I didn't put the longer cable on and have had no additional problems.

    For me the jusry is still out. I've got a 2008 FireCat with updated limbs and such for make it a 2010 version. This still has the conventional cable rod/slide. I had a Moab last year with the CCS. Between the two bows I still prefer the cable guard rod/ slide.

    I just got a new Alien Z with the CCS. It came through with the wrong cams so the draw length is a little long, but I've shot it a few times and find that this bow is very very quiet. Just like the Moab it has a different sound to it, kind of a metalic sound, but very subtle. I can actually tell that there is a little less vibration because the cables aren't traveling forward, but I don't believe the difference is worth converting a bow that has a conventional rod/slide.

    I do know that the CCS keeps the cables from traveling to the rear as the bow is drawn. For this reason it does add about 1/2? draw to the bow and increases stress on the limbs so draw weight goes up about 5#. To counter this Martin increased the length of the cable(s) by 1/2" on bows with the CCS.

    I've got my own personal feeling that on a hunting bow I'd rather have a slide/rod combination simply because it's simpler. If a slide wears out or breaks it's easy to buy one anywhere and just slip it on and you're back in business. If the rollers on a CCS wear out then you have to get the parts from Martin. I don't know of any dealers that stock these parts so who knows how long you'd wait. Just some food for thought.
