    Sonny, Any standard 3/8 rod will fit, the offset rod does seem to be a logical choice as it would allow some adjustment. The TRG is headed in the right direction, but IMO it is set out too far, a person could darn near shoot full size uncut feathers and have no contact issues with the cables. This system would be perfect if they would use an offset rod and allowed some way to loosen the TRG on the rod so it could be adjusted when the rod is adjusted.

    Default TRG System HELP!

    If you study the TRG system from the riser, I'm now a little disappointed. First, that the hole is so far off center that the hole is exposed to full depth doesn't leave a "clean" looking riser. Second, I don't understand why the unit could not be adjustable throughout. Okay, you can move the SOS, but not the TRG. Third, for some 12 years and more the standard slide and guide rod has been used quite successfully and more so successfully provided a hardened offset guide rod was used.

    To have a open mind, think outside the box, have ideas is great, but then there is acceptance by the public. Some ideas are really great, but need "eased" in or "hammer tested" before going full throttle.

    To me it sounds like a business opportunity for someone who can make a TRG out of Delrin or Teflon.

    Or a Binary X cam system. Remove the rod/slide or TRG altogether. Does Nitrous X jog any memories?

    I called Martin CS and talked to them about this thread and issue. I actually got to talk to Joel as well. He said that the starter of this thread didnt have the serving of the TRG right and was causing the TRG & Strings to eat each other. Also, I am sure the TRG & SOS system prototype went trough exhausting trials & I can't imagine a company like Martin would establish a new product like the TRG & SOS system if it failed after a few 100 shots. That doesnt make for good business.

    From what I was told by my Martin Rep, they originally were going to serve the cables where they went through the TRG, but found that it didn't work well. As far as wear on the TRG, after 1000+ shots on my Firecat, I can't see any sign of wear, other than the small amount of plastic that ends up on my cables. It's easily wiped off with a piece of old blue jean material, then I just re-slicken the cables with conditioner. No visible sign of any wear at all on the TRG system.
