Looks more like a zombie bow.

looks like a destroyer

it kinda is. it has destroyer limbs and carbon overdrive cams. I got a good deal on all the parts figured why not. No vibe or hand shock like my bowtech experiece. very very quiet

March 30th, 2014, 06:39 PM

So what would the IBO come out to?

April 1st, 2014, 04:16 PM
roughly 352. I had to use 70 lb limbs to get 60 lbs. Wish there were som 80 lb destroyer limbs out there.

60lb at 309fps I wouldn't even consider any limbs!

Real curious, what's the total cost you have in this Awesome Speed Bow?

Great Job!
Thanks for sharing!

I have about 500 into this one. I got the cams for a hell of a deal that i could pass up.

As far as cams, I have an outlaw and I'm tired of the damn thing eating strings. Any suggestions?

That's a dang good looking bow!

April 13th, 2014, 03:14 PM
where are they being eaten at?

roughly 352. I had to use 70 lb limbs to get 60 lbs. Wish there were som 80 lb destroyer limbs out there.

Shorten the cables by 1/4" and lengthen the string by 1/2". That'll get you more poundage and DL. Not sure how much but it should get you several pounds heavier.

That is unless you already measured the maximum limb travel on each bow to find out how much the limbs can go. If you're at the max, you probably shouldn't go more than that.

About two inches above the cam, where the string rolls over the draw mod .

The throttle cams are mean on servings because of the cam profile. That's one reason I wanted to do the swap. You might change cams off an assassin and even the limbs. Then the measurement to find out what string and cable size is next. It would be cheaper to buy a different bow. If you want to have fun and money isn't an issue you could do assassin limbs and cams and maybe the carbon knight limbs and cams. not sure if the limb pocket area is the same.

I love the bow, hate to sell it to someone knowing they're gonna have the same problem. Wish Bowtech would just fix the damn issue.
