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.

      Made it out to North Center today by sunken island. Not very good, one perch. Marking them just not committing. Lots of water on ice, but ice is fine. 17 inches.    As far as north access, off Nelson road on east side there is an access. Put money in the box and don't be a Richard, I believe it is owned by a farmer and let's people use

      Lake St Clair is a blast. If you hit vermilion at the right time it will be right up there with that. No reason you can't have a 100 fish day with a good chance at many big fish. Going by my phone pictures I had a great day on June 17 a few years back ha. Theres no shortage of rocky shorelines and docks. I'm a fan of tubes myself but I know guys love their senkos.    I'm sure you'll get some more specific responses. Wish I had more time to chase them myself
