\r\n Martin Cat Cam-Optimum Settings-Advice-Questions\r\n

\r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n

\r\n
\r\n I\'ve been shooting the CAT cam for some time now. I\'ve learned a ton of things. One thing I have found is how to find the sweet spot. We all like a different feel and I would like for this thread to be used to help each of us find what we like. I have done lots of testing and I will continue to do a lot more. The one thing I know is that when you find the sweet spot as I have you will enjoy this cam as much or more than any cam you have shot.
\r\n
\r\nI wish I had some pictures and I will try to take some tonight.
\r\n
\r\nI want to help those that want help and to continue to learn myself.
\r\n
\r\nLet\'s define some myths and facts about the cam in this thread.
\n
\r\n

\r\n
\r\nLet\'s define some do\'s and don\'ts.
\r\n
\r\nI will try to start. I\'m always short on time and I will help each day that I can.
\r\n
\r\nMyth-At full draw the modules must touch the cables at the same time, Most certainly Myth.
\r\nFact-Your bow can perform at its optimum setting while the modules do not touch the cables at full draw at all, and where the gap between the module and the cable are not exactly the same. When you are in this setting, the draw stop becomes the key factor.
\r\n
\r\nDo\'s- Use the draw stop to your advantage. Long draw guys (30,31") we would need to discuss. I\'m a 28" draw.
\r\n
\r\nDon\'ts-Do not get worked up about the "Timing" of the wheels" get it close and work on the draw stop. Then fine tune. I can help with that.
\r\n
\r\nDo\'s-Get the cam wrapped up in the cable as much as possible without the cables touching the cable(Loop) post in the relaxed (static-not full draw) state. This gap needs to be minimized. Again the gap from the top and bottom do not have to be the same.
\r\n
\r\nDon\'ts-Do not try to shoot the bow with 80% or more let off. When you let the bow down from full draw and you feel like you have to push it to get it to come down you have excessive let off. I wouldn\'t want that for my optimum setting.
\r\n
\r\nLets work together in this thread to help one another get the cam in the optimum setting and listen to each others remarks to continue learning.
\r\n
\r\nI will not be on the thread often but I will do what I can to help. Work gets in the way.\r\n

    \nWhat he said. I have found this to be pretty accurate.
    \r\n
    \r\nOn the timing thing, the mod synch is pretty darn important. Otherwise the cams will "wrestle" each other.\r\n

    \r\n As for the cam timing. My cams do not match. I meant for it to be this way. If the cams match and I get just a little weak in the shot and creep just a touch the arrow will hit low at 40 yards about 3 inches. With the cams set just out of perfect timing I can pull into the wall about 1/16" and creep 1/4" and hit in the same spot at 40 yds. Therefore with the cams just out of perfect sync I have perfect nock travel. For a shooter this is what I prefer. I don\'t make perfect shots all day lone and I do want my bow to help if it can. That is why mine is set the way it is. I hope to have pictures tomorrow.\r\n

    \r\n I have attached pictures of both the top and bottom cams on my bow. The gap between the cable on the end cable loop post you will notice is not the same. This setting in my promotes level nock travel all the time. That is what I like and what shoots the best.
    \r\n
    \r\nYou may also notice the brass nock sets on the string and their location. For some reason I have found that this Cam likes more weight that the Nitrous or Furious Cam to get the optimum setting. I also found to have more on the bottom than the top. Location of these may very from draw length to draw length as may the amount (weight).
    \r\n
    \r\nI will try to get some pictures at full draw when I have another person around to help or when I get back to my shooting machine.
    \r\n
    \r\nLet me know if you have any questions.\r\n

    \r\n what\'s the location of your speed nocks? I know it may depend on the dl and dw of your bow, but could you give me some starting point? Thanks!

    \r\n Curious, how are you measuring nock travel? Through bare shaft testing?\r\n

    \r\n Cowboy,
    \r\n
    \r\nI use a Hooter Shooter at 40 yards along with creep testing to determine perfect cam sync. AKA Nock Travel.
    \r\n
    \r\nWorks every time.
    \r\n
    \r\nWhen I started I had a creep arrow hitting low about 5 inches from an arrow at my set draw length at 40 yds.
    \r\n
    \r\nWhen I finished with the adjustments I can creep approx 1/4" and pull extra approx. 1/16" into the limb and all 3 draw settings at 40 yds now hit in the exact same spot within a quarter size group. Better if I could aim the machine better.
    \r\n
    \r\nThanks\r\n

    \nSo what you\'re saying is............. you adjust your cam synch to fit your particular shooting style..............
    \r\n
    \r\nIf you creep 1/4", how can you pull into the limb 1/16"??????\r\n

    \r\n Spectre,
    \r\n
    \r\nNot exactly.
    \r\n
    \r\nI never choose to creep or pull excessively. I choose to shoot my bow at my said draw length each and every time. However, I am human. I sometimes get tired. I sometimes get excited when aiming. Therefore I set my bow up to hit in the middle which ever way that particular shot occurs.
    \r\n
    \r\nNow if said properly what I mean is if you happen to creep just a little at my setting I will have the same impact. If I happen to pull a little hard a my setting I will have the same impact. When I shoot a great shoot at my draw length I will have the same impact. All good things.
    \r\n
    \r\nAs for my setting!! Wheel sync is wheel sync just the same. Not just for me.
    \r\n
    \r\nThanks\r\n

    \r\n I have read through this post and it has been a tremendous help. As I am approaching the optimum setup, everything is falling in line. I had some cam lean on my 09 firecat that is slowly disappearing as I get the cams wrapped up. Thanks\r\n

    \r\n Well after Martin was gracious enough to upgrade my 09\' Firecat to 2010 limbs, limb cups and cams I\'m trying to get back in tune myself using the info in this thread.
    \r\n
    \r\nSooooooo, how do I look?
    \r\n
    \r\nATA.............@ 32 7/16"
    \r\nBrace height @ 6 15/16"
    \r\nDraw weight @ 60#
    \r\nDraw Length @ 27.625
    \r\n
    \r\nModules set on 28" draw setting and draw stop set to approx. 27.625". So less than 80% let off (I\'m guessing approx. about 73-75% let off?)
    \r\n
    \r\nArrow weight = 312 grains
    \r\n
    \r\nLoaded string (meta peep, string leeches, d-loop) shooting 60#, 27.625" DL and 312 gr. arrow at 299 fps.
    \r\n
    \r\nI have not experimented with speed nocks yet. I just have 2 top and bottom at the moment.
    \r\n
    \r\nAny suggestions?\r\n

    \r\n Guys, as a new Firecat owner, just setting my bow up I have to thank you for a great string! At the same time I have to say that I am a bit daunted by the posts and the thought of going backwards once I start tinkering... Has anybody ever done or seen a utube vid showing the processes discussed in this thread?
    \r\n
    \r\nIf so where?
    \r\n
    \r\nIf not, how to entice someone?

    \nI dont think there is a video of the process. It is pretty easy tho - Look at the pics in the post above yours by \'Fowl Natured\'.
    \r\n
    \r\nThe following is a post by Nuts&Bolts that explains this much better than I do.
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\nRemove the screw out of the DL module
    \r\nand rotate the DL module,
    \r\nand re-install the screw for the DL module
    \r\ninto the hole that is 1/2-inch LONGER than your correct DL.
    \r\n
    \r\nIf you shoot 28-inches,
    \r\nthen install the screw into the 28.5-inch hole
    \r\non the DL module.
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\nStep 2.
    \r\n
    \r\nStart twisting up the bowstring,
    \r\ni.e. ADD twists to the bowstring,
    \r\nto shorten the bowstring,
    \r\nwhich will adjust the starting rotation position
    \r\nof the bottom cam.
    \r\n
    \r\nKeep TWISTING and TWISTING until the bottom cam looks like this picture.
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\nThe bottom cam has a hole near the logo.
    \r\n
    \r\nAs you keep ADDING twists to the bowstring,
    \r\nthe bottom cam will rotate
    \r\nand the edge of the hole will get CLOSER and CLOSER
    \r\nto the face of the bottom limb.
    \r\n
    \r\nWhen the edge of the hole just kisses the face of the bottom limb,
    \r\nthen you have added enough TWISTS to the bowstring.
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\nNow,
    \r\nobviously,
    \r\nthe bowstring is much shorter than NORMAL.
    \r\n
    \r\nSo,
    \r\nyou may find that the bow DL setting is now too short for your liking
    \r\nor
    \r\nyou may find that the bow DL setting is a skosh too long for your liking.
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\nEasy fix.
    \r\n
    \r\nAdjust the bow DL just right,
    \r\nby moving the draw stop in the slot.
    \r\n
    \r\nMake teeny tiny adjustments,
    \r\nto the draw stop position,
    \r\nuntil you get the draw length setting you like.
    \r\n
    \r\nHump will be ZERO.
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\nSo,
    \r\nwhat if the DL is now perfect,
    \r\nand the HUMP is ZERO....
    \r\n
    \r\nbut,
    \r\nthe holding weight is too high?
    \r\n
    \r\nWell,
    \r\nmove the draw stop away from the riser,
    \r\nand the holding weight will drop down.
    \r\n
    \r\nBut,
    \r\nwhen you move the draw stop away from the riser,
    \r\nthe holding weight goes DOWN,
    \r\nbut the DL also goes UP.
    \r\n
    \r\nWell,
    \r\njust add more twists to the bowstring,
    \r\nand the DL will shorten a skosh.
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\nAs long as the edge of the hole in the bottom cam
    \r\nis pretty close to touching the face of the bottom limb,
    \r\nthe HUMP will be ZERO.
    \r\n
    \r\nAll I would like to add to this is that once you twist up the string and get the bottom cam hole lined up with the limb - if the hole in the top cam is farther from the limb - then untwist the cable that is connected to the outer peg on the top cam another twist or so untill they match. If it is closer to the limb or starting to go behind it - add another full twist.
    \r\nOnce both are the same - your good
    \r\n

    \r\n gjstudt, Thanks for all the help. Even tho this is an old post it works!! I have the new Martin Silencer and it has the new Nitro 2 cams on it. This information is spot on (for any dual cam bow I think). I was shooting 385 gr arrows at 280fps with 60# and 29"DL. I twisted the cables and untwisted the string until I got to the short side of 1/8" gap top and bottom (slightly more top than bottom) then I moved my draw stop to bring my DL back down to just over 29. This got rid of the harsh letoff that it had before. It increased my hold weight from 12# to 20# and gave me a nice solid wall (little valley) which is a great feel for me. End result, those same arrows are now moving accross the chrony at 303fps.\r\n

    \r\n Would this work on a Shadowcat to lower the knocking point? I shoot fingers and my knocking point is crazy hight, still can\'t get the tail low condition out of it.

    \nADD a full turn to the top limb bolt.
    \nREMOVE a full turn on the bottom limb bolt.
    \n
    \nSee how that works for you.
    \nIf things get better,
    \nbut you STILL have some tail low condition...
    \n
    \nADD another 1/4-turn to the top limb bolt
    \nand
    \nREMOVE another 1/4-turn off the bottom limb bolt.
    \n
    \nKeep adjusting this way,
    \nuntil you get level arrow flight.
    \n
    \n
    \nCONFIRM that you have the same DL module setting on the top and bottom
    \n(same screw hole in the top DL module and same screw hole in the bottom DL module).\r\n

    \nHello Don:
    \n
    \nJust start from where your bolts are currently.
    \n
    \nSince you are getting a nock low condition,
    \nthe bottom limb is working WAY TOO HARD.

    \r\n Well I have been playing around with cam settings, so far I have picked up 11fps just by doing what was suggested in this thread.
    \r\n My numbers before any tweeking were..28" draw, 55 pounds, 321 grain arrows going 265 fps. After the saig cable twisting and such my speed went up to 271 fps. I cranked the poundage up to 60 pounds and am now at 284.5 fps.Next I will try adding some speed knocks and move them around to see if I can bring up my fps.
    \r\nI am also going to refletch a few shafts with feathers to bring the total arrow weight down, but I still don\'t see how I will be able to get the weight down to IBO (or what ever the letters are)weight for 60 pounds. I am shooting Harvest Time HT-2\'s in the #400 flavor with 75 grain tips.
    \r\n I will keep ya\'ll posted with what I come up with. If anyone has anything to add, jump in.
    \r\n OBTW... This is a non-sight finger bow.

    \r\n I found that by adding a bit more weight below the factory speed knocks on the bottom cam gave me a few extra fps .And try a tied knock set.Victory hv shafts will get your weight down.\r\n

    \r\n Start with 3 brass nock sets and locate them half inch from each cam. This will be a good start. \n

    \r\n 284 fps at 28inch with 321 grns at 60 lb WITHOUT the factory speed knocks. Thats one fast cat ( it should make it\'s rated ibo speed easy) You should pick up another 5 to 10with the knocks.\r\n

    \r\n I don\'t have CAT cams, but I\'ve read thru this thread at least a half dozen times thinking that the same general ideas (if not exact measurements) would apply to my Hybrix cams.
    \r\n
    \r\nNow I\'m wondering how many of you have eperience with the Hybrix and would be willing to share. I\'ve tried starting a new thread both here and on the Martin forum with no luck.\r\n

    \r\n Butch,
    \r\n I have Hybrix cams on the Shadowcat I have been tweeking on. On my other Shadowcat it has written on the cams....Nitro.1.5. If you stack them one on top of the other they are the same. So tweek your bow to your hearts content. It is awsome what you can get out of these cams.
    \r\n If you have any questions, just ask.
    \r\n Don.\r\n

    \r\n Forgot this thread existed. I don\'t know how many Martins with Cat Cams I\'ve played with, but enough of them and the Rytera cams are no different. I\'ve had 3 Shadowcats, two 2010s and one 2011. Down to one and one now. You know, the manual works. One cam hits before the other, twist the cable that feeds into the module for that cam. This wrapping of cams and whatever, fine, but always check draw length and draw weight. Go out of specs, long on draw and heavy on weight, and you\'re just fooling yourself.
    \r\n
    \r\nMy 2010 and 2011 are set to a bit over 56 pounds with 28 1/4" draws. Using a 284 gr arrow they cranked out 286 and 293 fps respectively. The 2010 doesn\'t not have speed nocks - so the 7 fps difference?
    \r\n
    \r\nI have advanced the Cat Cams quite abnormally, but held ata spec. Speed was not effected and if anything the draw seemed a bit smoother, but these were Shadowcats of 41 1/4 and 41 1/2".
    \r\n
    \r\nSo far, depending on the bow, having the top cam hit a bit before the bottom seems to work wonders. Hoyt people have found the same thing. I did the same with my last two Hoyts and they shot great.\r\n

    \r\n Kyle, check out post #219 by Spikelaot on the previous page. He copied an earlier post from nuts&bolts that nicely describes the process. Read it carefully and apply the steps as described. You should be able to get the cams, DW, DL and let-off set just the way you want by following these steps. I know, I\'ve used the process a few times myself when I\'ve changed cables and strings. Also, nuts&bolts has some very good and clear photos on the first page of this thread so everyone can visualize just what they should be striving for. If you have a bow press it makes the whole process that much easier than turning the limb bolts in and out. I have a BowMaster portable press and it works great with my 08 Firecat.
    \n
    \nI recently got a little smarter and started using my cordless drill-driver with a 1/2" adapter and 5/8" socket to fit the hex head on the press\'s jackscrew (threaded bolt) to draw the limbs in (take tension off the strings and cables) and let them out, making it a much easier and faster process. In case you\'re not familiar with it you can check it out here (http://www.prototechind.com/). It costs about $50 and is worth every penny. I take mine with me when I\'m out hunting just in case - it only weighs a few ounces. The one thing I do that I haven\'t seen mentioned is I apply a drop or two of light machine oil to the jackscrew threads every now and then (wiping off any excess) as it helps reduce friction, making it easier to turn the jackscrew in and out and I feel sure it helps reduce wear and tear on the main body.\r\n

    \r\n I\'m glad to see this thread come back up. I set my Nemesis aside mid-way thru hunting season because it developed a creaking noise. Time to get it back out and tear it down for a cleanup -' + '- maybe build a new set of strings -' + '- and get it re-tuned. I reallly like that bow.
    \n
    \nJust as an aside -' + '- I recently picked up a Bowtech Invasion. I\'m shocked at the similarities between it and the Nemesis. Very similar feels, but I think the Nemesis is quieter when it\'s in tune.
    \n
    \nBest of luck to each of you.\r\n

      Martin Cat Cam-Optimum Settings-Advice-Questions

      I've been shooting the CAT cam for some time now. I've learned a ton of things. One thing I have found is how to find the sweet spot. We all like a different feel and I would like for this thread to be used to help each of us find what we like. I have done lots of testing and I will continue to do a lot more. The one thing I know is that when you find the sweet spot as I have you will enjoy this cam as much or more than any cam you have shot.

      I wish I had some pictures and I will try to take some tonight.

      I want to help those that want help and to continue to learn myself.

      Let's define some myths and facts about the cam in this thread.



      Let's define some do's and don'ts.

      I will try to start. I'm always short on time and I will help each day that I can.

      Myth-At full draw the modules must touch the cables at the same time, Most certainly Myth.
      Fact-Your bow can perform at its optimum setting while the modules do not touch the cables at full draw at all, and where the gap between the module and the cable are not exactly the same. When you are in this setting, the draw stop becomes the key factor.

      Do's- Use the draw stop to your advantage. Long draw guys (30,31") we would need to discuss. I'm a 28" draw.

      Don'ts-Do not get worked up about the "Timing" of the wheels" get it close and work on the draw stop. Then fine tune. I can help with that.

      Do's-Get the cam wrapped up in the cable as much as possible without the cables touching the cable(Loop) post in the relaxed (static-not full draw) state. This gap needs to be minimized. Again the gap from the top and bottom do not have to be the same.

      Don'ts-Do not try to shoot the bow with 80% or more let off. When you let the bow down from full draw and you feel like you have to push it to get it to come down you have excessive let off. I wouldn't want that for my optimum setting.

      Lets work together in this thread to help one another get the cam in the optimum setting and listen to each others remarks to continue learning.

      I will not be on the thread often but I will do what I can to help. Work gets in the way.
