    Default Shadowcat X?

    Has anyone thought about a 'Cat with a shoot through cable set up? I love shooting my 'Cat, but I think that would put it over the top.

    Could we get the designers at Martin to work on it?

    I guess you're talking about a newer ShadowCat. I have a 2005 model with SE limb pockets which rakes the limbs back more giving it a more parallel limb configuration. It's 32" long with a 9 3/8" Brace height. B nitrous X cams. Home brewed STS where the cable rod would normally mount.

    That brace and your 26.5" draw is going to give you a pretty short power stroke isn't it?

    Yes it does, but the speed for my hunting setup was still in the mid 260's thanks to the Nitrous cams. And for average hunting distances I've said it before. Speed is a non-issue.

    This is the bow I'm thinking about replacing the limb pockets with standard models and make a ShadowCat mag out of. When I get to it I'll be in need of assistance from CopterDoc.
