    I setup 2 - 2010's for a customer, both had the 1.5's set for 30", one was his indoor bow and the other was for IBO use. Initially, out of the box, they both had issues with the cables rubbing the post. After getting both in spec and playing around with the cable rod position we had clearance on both bows, wasn't much, but the cables did clear the post.

    Seems like a lot of you have had this happen. When I talked with Joel at Martin about it he had never heard of this. Maybe they should get a heads up so they can work on it.

    Yeh that's the third time I've head "martin have never heard of this" Got to wonder why they have taken the trg sos off the 2011 bows.Don't get me wrong I like the bow it's one of the best finger bows I've tried, just don't like having the cable guard pulled right out to clear the peg.

    String and cable lengths, don't assume they are correct out of the box. And before anyone makes any comments.........., its not just Martin that ships bows with strings out of spec, their are at least 3 other companys that ship bows with strings out of spec as well as changing specs in the middle of a model year. When you make strings for a living, this makes life a bit complicated, trying to chase down all the correct specs.

    I do have a different set of specs for the Shadowcat w/1.5's, than what is listed on the limbs. I'll dig through my files tomorrow and post them for anyone interested.

    How very true. I spent two weeks trying to figure out why my brand new $1200 Oneida Kestrel was all over the place and would not stay in tune. Finally sent it to a dealer in Maine and it had the wrong string and cables on it directly from CPOneida. Presto chango and everything was so sweet.

    Be interesting to see,I've adjusted mine from one end to the other, making the draw from 1inch long to 1inch short( cam under rotated to cam over rotated)and then setting the module ,always with the same result.when actual draw length gets to 29 inch the cable hits the post ( actually i did manage to get an extra 1/4 inch with the cam under rotated and the module on the 29 inch position.And that was with the bow set at 2011 spec. Anyway I am hoping your right, but I just purchased that set of no 2 cams on archery talk, just in case.

    The alternate specs I have are, String 60" Cables 46.25 . these are for the 1.5 cams.

    If you are switching from the 1.5's to the 2.0's, remember that you'll lose appox. 7-10#'s DW if you are using the same limbs.
