    Default 2011 Cable Guard and SOS

    So what is the take on this design:

    1. Does the new cable guard really reduce torque? If so, how?

    2.Does the SOS allow for more consistent arrow/string release and noise?

    3. Are older bows upgradeable with these?

    Thanks.

    1. I would think it would because it seems to hold the cables at a lesser angle
    2. This I am not sure on, because I have never shot the 2011 Martins.
    3. As far as I know, the answer is no

    1. Compared to last years ccs, yes it will, it dosen't hold the cables in a static position, they will actually move back closer to the center line of the bow at full draw.

    2. On paper it should make a difference, but I can't say for sure as we never had any real problems tuning last years models with the low mount sts. It's really not much quieter than the low mount when both are setup correctly, although there is less riser movement with the sos than with the sts.

    3. The older bows that used a 3/8" cable rod mounted above the shelf should be upgradeable to this system.

    The SOS has a capture effect and movable. TRG does not house the cables like slides do. The cables are out in the open and slide on a fair wide angled surface - which I have to say it looks as a benefit. This of course eliminates the guide sliding on the rod. A secondary thing maybe, but no need of removing the cables from the guide to wax them.

    Does anyone with a TRG/SOS shoot FOBs? I'd like to know if the new system is in the way for FOBs?

    If I rotate an arrow fletched w/blazers so a vane is inline with the TRG there is appox. 1/8" clearance. The TRG can be rotated slightly to provide a bit more clearance if needed.
