    Does the Bowjax short stop insert make a noticeable difference as far as noise level or is it just supposed to be more durable or something?

    Definately nice rigs....

    You can get them at www.meanvarchery.com under accessories They are more durable, quieter, and eliminate any tuning issues due to the V catch.

    First off Dan, those are some nice looking rigs. I love my 82nd.

    I have got to get me the short stop insert, I like that one that you have.

    Question, is there a reason that you have a CSS with a short stop? Does it make a big difference?

    The 2 really work well in conjunction with each other. I wasn't the 1st to try it, but after talking with a couple of guys who had I decided to put one on.

    Good Move!!

    I put one of your Mean V CSS on my Tribute and that made a world of difference in how quiet that bow shot. I will have to order on for my 82nd and try that.

    Default Cam timing and maintenance

    It sounds like you can give answers to my concerns about the 82nd. How much trouble is it to set up tune and how often does it need to be redone. In the old days two cams were a real maintenance chore, have new strings and cables fixed that ?? Even Mathews is going to two cams for speed.

    I am 65 and want to back off on the 70# but want speed so I am looking at the 82nd 60# as a trade off.

    I have an 82nd. I put a set of Vapor Trail strings & cables on it last summer. I then set Cam timing, Cam sync, and tuned.

    After hunting with it all season it was still dead on.

    I love my 82nd after some growing pains.
    Had it almost a year now.....

    The short stop replacement insert that Meanv sells is a good ticket.

    I still have my original 452x cables/string on it from the factory and I don't have an issue with anything tuning-wise. I did put a limb driver on it from jcmorgan31 and will probably get a Meanv surpressor from Dan. He's a good guy to work with.

    I'm not sure why you have 2 82nd's in camo there Dan.... You need to check one of the camo ones at the door and get a Testarossa on like mine....

    Great looking bows there though.

    Ron, The APG 82nd is leaving! I had to make room for the 09's. I have wanted an all Black Bow even Black Cams, but just can't decide which model.

    The Mini MeanV (it is for the short brace height bows) has now become the Mini MeanV Maximum.

    It is made from 7075 alloy which yields a higher tensile strength without adding any weight. The regular MeanV also comes in a Maximum model now. I am pretty excited about them.

    They are Sweet!
