    Default Can't install Martin STS on Saber

    I have a 2010 Martin Saber for which I bought the STS to upgrade the bow (part 8897). The thing does not fit in the hole that was drilled for this thing. Any suggestions?

    Most likely there's some of the camo inside the hole. Clean it carefully with a proper sized drill bit and it'll be ok.

    Yep, drill bit can work. Or a reamer. 3/8" diameter.

    Even sandpaper wraped around a dowel will remove enough of the camo dip to allow the rod to slide into place.
