    With the Martin TRG and my own, I have noticed an improvement in the draw cycle, most notably near the end as the draw force curve drops into the valley before coming up against the hard stop/wall. Both TRG types helped make the "hump" into the valley less pronounced. That's the biggest difference I've experienced. It's been long enough time since I had a straight guide rod and slide installed that I don't recall if there was much else different in the first part of the draw cycle between the two systems. Since both systems pull the cables very close to the same amount to the side at the first part of the draw cycle, logic would seem to indicate the "feel" would be very similar during this phase with both straight rod and TRG.

    Why must you tempt me with this.idea! ..I think I want to make a rod system like this for my cheetah... the bow is sooooo short which makes the cable / cam lean a bit if an issue...... rather than dumping $80 on a tilt tamer, I may just brave it.... and go with this route..... i an an electrician, and it really sems like a lot if the same geomerty i use during conduit bending.... just wish we had a 3/8 hydraulic bender. That would make it too sweet..... we shall see. I've had a lot of issues with my bow, and don't really.want.to cause more, which.is what scares me with this, but only time will tell....

    I have been thinking something of this style is a great solution... didn't know anyone tried it til I dug up this old thread. My dad used to own an archery shop that carried lots of Martin parts, including 3/8'' aluminum and carbon rods. I am gonna play with some of the long aluminum rods, and see if I can come up with something.
