Hybrid / Dual/ Single Cams

If you were shopping for a new bow, which cam system do you prefer and why?

It seems everything is Single Cam now..

I would say go with a quality solo cam because they are plenty fast and have a smooth draw. I've never shot a hybrid cam so I can't say much about it. Another factor would be cost.

I think that will probably depend on what brand you get. I would say go with a single cam. I said the cost would make a difference but truthfully it probably wouldn't. I don't have to get the top name brands to be happy, but I do want something that is reliable and performs well. I shoot a less than name brand bow, but it will perform as well as a mathews. I shoot with a couple of guys that both shoot mathews and found my bow to be as fast as theirs and is just as accurate. Another thing I would think about is noise, the solo is supposed to be quieter.

GTK, most of us average guys would not be able to tell much difference at all in any of them. Buy what you can afford, get it set up right, and shoot it a lot. If you do that you will be able to shoot it as well or better than many people who spend $1000 plus on their bow. All the modern bows, no matter the cam configuration will kill deer in the hands of someone who practices.
Score one for the little guy!

I shoot a single cam and love it. I switched in 2000 and never looked back. You can get them very reasonable and I think 8 years is pretty good for the amount I have shot mine. Never had a problem out of it. I like them for the ease of maintenance and no timing of cams is involved. I shoot a Jennings Buckmaster 2000.

I was a believer in single cams and Bart's sales pitch(HA,HA!!). Just bought a PSE X Force with Hyper cams and it is by far the smoothest I have ever shot. Try them all and buy what you can afford that fits the best. And remember, bow shops push their bow of choice, may not be your best fit.

Hoyt's cam & 1/2 ranks right up there with the Solocam and is hard to beat!

I have two bows......

Pearson Stealth with dual cams

and a Mathews Legacy Solo cam

I can get into all types of comparisons.......

But both bows shoot great! My Pearson is faster.

However to answer your question, the Solo Cam bows tend to stay in tune almost forever as you do not have to "Match" cam alignment.

Other than that, find a bow that fits you, has a draw curve that you like, and is quiet.

Not a dimes bit of difference in the top of the line bows on the market today except weight.

Heck, I have an old T-Star 2 Jennings that does not even have cams, just eccentric wheels.

Slow but I killed over 100 animals with it over the years.

Has a special place of retirememnt on bow rack. But I coul dkill a deer with it this fall if I decided to.

Take a look at the binary cams. They are slaved to each other unlike a dual cam system. Makes it way easier to time, and they stay in time better then any other cam.
But to each there own, just have to shoot them and see what you like.
