The Xbow 3 has the front lines connected by a pulley with the back lines more in the back of the leading edge. So, i was thinking that this mean more stability and less bar pressure.

I believe the locations where the bridle connects to the LE on the CB3 is different enough from the CB1 that it would be tough to make that mod.

There have been so many improvements between the CB1, CB2, and the CB3, that you should consider upgrading at some point anyway. There are lots of deals out there on CB2's as the dealers are trying to clear space for the new hotness. If you're on a budget that upgrade is still definitely worth it.

Thanks, man. I have already the upgrade at the bridle from the Xbow 2. I've looked at the Xbow3 and i thought that an upgrade would be possible.
