    Exclamation TRG System HELP!

    Hey everyone, Does anyone else have a problem with the new TRG system? It appears to me that the TRG and the Hammerhead String are eating each other up on my new 2011 Exlie Bow. I asked the dealer to check with Martin but I am not sure if they really are or not because all I get from them is that they are waiting for a response back from Martin. I have had the Bow a couple of weeks now I first noticed it within a few days and brought it to the dealers attention. They said they would look into it.
    Other than that I love the new Exile. It's light and fast! It should prove to be a great hunting bow. It shoots great as long as I do. Meaning that it isn't very forgiving of my shooting sins. I just have to get better if I want it to hit the 10 ring more often.
    Also I'm still waiting for the new 2011 online catalog to be available. I want to put on the SOS system because I need to quite this thing down. It is little to loud for my taste.
    HELP!

    you would probably have the TRG figured out faster if you called Martin customer service. How many shots have you put through it? I have around 100 through my silencer and have no problems with it.

    Question TRG Help Continued

    I probably have about 500 arrows through it. However I began to notice it after 100 shots or so. I was hoping it would just go away as it wore in but it doesn't appear to yet.

    Your dealer can order you the SOS. It is part #8811.
    If they wont contact Martin about the cable wear issue you can call CS and talk to them yourself. They will help you out.

    I contacted CS and spoke with Joel. A+ He has me covered. I should be straightened out in a few days.
    The bidg question is why couldn't the dealer do that? it was pretty easy actually. Thanks!

    The dealer doesn't have as much power, then the voice of a customer.

    I ran into it on my Firecat. Looked closely, and it's not a cable problem, it's the plastic from the TRG rubbing off and sticking to the cables. Started using Bohning's "string conditioner" on that part of the cables, and that seems to have drastically cut down on the problem. That string conditioner is alot slicker than regular wax. But ONLY use it right around the TRG. Get it near a peep, D-loop, or string silencer and they'll start to move.

    Default TRG System HELP!

    Well, R&D must not have done their job. To me the TRG looked to be a benefit, but then I said the test of time would tell. I just hope that the standard offset guide rod can be installed and work..... I dislike new stuff until proven.
