    Default ShadowNos

    Hey friends. I have a question for you. I started to make the string and cables for my ShadowCat -> Nitrous conversion. Now i ask myself what to do as the Nitrous-Cam is a tad wider than the gap in the limb fork:

    a) use the 14" Magnum limbs from 2006 and see what happens.

    b) use the 13" limbs from 2010 and see what happens.

    The 14" limbs have edges and i am not sure how to convert the bow from the ROTO cup to the traditional limb cup design. The 13" limbs are a tad too narrow. So what to do?

    I am putting Nitrous B's on my Nemesis and am sanding the inside of the limb forks for the cams to fit with really thin spacers on each side.

    I could take the Spacers i got with my CAT cam for this purpose (around 8 ultra thin black spacers....).

    Nice to hear that you will do this conversion. Let's see how you will feel with it. How do you sand down the limb forks? As you know i had several limbs break on me so i become real tentative...

    Simon, what's the "tad too narrow" in mm? I think that if it's not more then 1mm you can sand the limbforks a little as Scott has suggested. The worst that can happen is you to buy new limbs

    I cannot measure that good. But it is something between 1 and 2mm. I know that it has been done as there are a few people shooting these Cams on the new bows.

    Hm.

    I will get my grey ShadowCat in a few weeks to my parents home to sand the limbs down. I cannot do it here. I am really hoping for a great shooting experience.

    Oh. My new strings for this bow are blueblack/black/orange. Looks really good.

    I think it could become an awesome shooter. You must try it. And please post some pictures!

    Right at 1mm off each inside of the limb forks with the spacers I'm using.
    Due to the fact that the NOS X will eliminate all twist and the limbs are Barnsdales with the reinforcements at the axle - I have no fear.
    My only concern is what the dw is going to be.
    Maybe one of the Nitrous Wizards will have some insight...

    With 1.5 -> B-Cams your DW will go up a max of 5lbs.

    With 2.0 -> B-Cams your DW will go down around 5 lbs.

    With 1.5 -> C-Cams your DW will go down 5lbs.

    With 2.0 -> C-Cams your DW will stay the same. Approx.

    Thats the Info i got from the one that converted his ShadowCat to NOS.

    You may need to sand enough clearance so that it will be correct when you apply a sealer over your sanded limb tips, would'nt want to leave them unsealed. If you need 1mm each side, remove 1.5 mm then re seal, I'd go with two coats of sealer. Just another thought.
