Tigress Elite Nitrous-X
AKA: "Icky's FrankenMartin"(r)
So my daughter lovers her Tigress riser because it "fits her hand as is not too heavy. She likes Elite limbs because the "look sweet". She like "X" Cams "just because".
So, I started assembling pieces and parts....
Originally, I had some strings off a Mystic Furious X.
Shoot String : 52-1/2"
They gave me:
Axle to Axle of 40"
Brace Height of 7"
But the were just too long and caused the control cables to slightly rub the inside of the limb cut-outs. needed to go a bit shorter...
I put some spare cables off a P3 Nitrous-X
This gave me:
Axle to Axle of 38""
Brace Height of 8-1/2"
Took care of the contact, but it did pre-load the limbs too much and I think the brace height might be a bit long...
Soon as my Tax Refund gets here I'm going top but a string making jig and try my hand at making my own strings.
I'll start at:
That should bring my A/A to 39" and bring my BH down to about 7.5", or so. Near as I can guestimate.
I'll also need to order some 0L Elite Limbs from Martin since these 3H are just a tad too heavy for her even backed all the way out 5 turns.
But all things considered, I think it's coming along nicely. That "Black Chrome Ghost Flame" is really cool next to those Elite Limbs, don't you think?
