    Default Cable guard .vs. Trg ?

    I guess I like to see a few years on a product before I buy one. So needless to say, when the Trg came out, I wanted to see how it performed first. When all said and done I think I will stick to the cable guard and slide. Or at at least till they perfect the Trg.

    Order a cable guard and glide and there won't be a next bow or see if they will trade it for one at Martin.

    You guys do realize that the TRG can be replaced with a standard rod and slide don't you ? The TRG rod is the same size ( 3/8" ) as a standard rod.

    Isn't it great to have the option? Has anybody seen an actual cable failure due to the TRG?

    I know where you're coming from Hutch. What's your take on the CCS?

    It works but is not perfected. Do a search and and see the derailment problems and the cable wear problems.
