    Default CAT 2 CAMS fs

    I think I recall someone here was looking for a set of Cat 2 cams. Just saw a set fs on Archerytalk for $40.

    Does anyone know if these will fit my limbs without issues (such as needing different axles and other parts)?

    I assume it's for your 08 Firecat, replacing the Cat Cams for Cat 2 Cams? If so, they should be OK, may need a spacer kit which is just an assortment of different size spacers for the axles, and available from Martin or dealer.

    I would suggest however, if the current cams are working OK, don't change em

    Also cat cams usually have re-enforced limbs, a pin thru the limb tips...

    Thanks guys. I was just curious if they would be a direct fit replacement for my CAT cams on my bow, in case the urge hit me for some reason down the road. Right now I'm very pleased with how my bows shooting and don't have any plans to change out parts such as these but you never know what's in store in the future. My latest changes have been adding a TRG/SOS system and new VEM modules and so far I'm quite pleased.

    The interchangability of Martins limbs and cams is hard to resist, seem like its always, what if..........

    I'm not so sure there is much of a difference between the cams, but changing to the newer modules is definitley worth the price. The older ones (2008) had a pretty sharp edge and if the cable rubbed on it it would eat up the end serving. The newer ones have more rounded edges and are slightly narrower. Still they have sharp edges on the inner side of the track and need touched up with a fine file and/or fine sand paper.
