    Sorry for spamming the forum, but I couldn’t find where to edit or delete my previous post.  That post, in hind-sight, is a bit convoluted.  Let me try again.

    1.  Can a Z-cam be added to an MQ1 riser and limbs?  If yes, Would I need to change the original upper wheel and the entire original lower cam assembly to accomplish this?

    2. If the answer to #1 is no, could either Z-Max or Z-Flight limbs be added to an MQ1 riser?  If yes, then I assume a Z-cam assembly can be added, but what about the upper wheel, would that need to be changed also?

    My goal is to reduce the draw length, plus have the 3-post bow length adjustment features that are built into the Z-cam construction.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this re-post and for any information you are able to share.

    No frankenbow designer here, but I think that the most important question that you need to have answered would be “Will the limb deflections for my current bow allow me to take a cam system from an entirely different bow and intall and use it safely with my current limbs and riser?”  My gut feeling is that the answer to that question is “no”, and that your energies and money will be better spent in another direction.
