Single or Double Cam

3 posts in this topic

Time for a new bow -- I've shot a Hoyt single cam in the past and was ok with it -- now wondering whether I should consider a double cam -- interested in others thoughts on the advantages of each.

Well, thats a can of worms... I have a couple of 2 cam bows.. and I have a cam.5 or a cam 1/2 but not a solo cam bow. The advantages of a single cam bow is tuning. Straight out they are easier to tune! The advantages with a 2 cam bow is speed...With todays bows, and how fast the solo cam bows are and the cam.5 bows are, I think the easier tuning drew me in. I still have my 2 cam bow for 3D, where speed is everything.

A 2 cam bow usually has a harder "wall" that some people prefer. But that isn't always the case either.

Get out to the shops ans tart to shoot them... you will find one that just "feels" right to you.

Like Dietz said a single cam bow has less parts to adjust and less aprts to fail. They are easier to tune, but conversely, they are less tunable.

A dual cam bow or a cam and ahalf design (I have a Darton cam and a half) and they simply have more adjustability and more tunability. I prefer the multi cam designs for that reason. Nowadays, any of the top of the line bows are done be exactly that, top of the line. The right bow for you is the obe that you shoot best with. Its not like buying a car or boat.

Get out there and shoot as many as you can. Find the designs you like and do well with and then find the one that fits your price range and your style.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
