    The top cam hits first on all 4 of my Hoyts. I measure by using "clicks" on my Bow Time Machine and the top is 1-2 clicks on all but the Contender, where it's a full 3 clicks ahead. Results...

    Most people have said that the stiffer limbs of the 70# give it a little more snap. I don't know. All I know is that the 60# maxed did not automatically outperform the 70# dropped. My Alphamax is...

    None of the 4 Hoyts in my signature use the "correct" module to get my 27" measured DL. They're all the size smaller and then I do a little string/cable manipulation to drop it where I want it.

    I had two Hoyt Vectrix bows with identical running gear. One was a 50-60 and the other 60-70. I set them both at 60 lbs and shot the same arrow thru my chrono. The 60-70# bow, at the bottom of its...

    A "high level" shooter is one who shoots 300/60x rounds, 550+ field rounds (including X's on those 60-70-80 yard shots) and does this consistently. 1/8" is going to be noticeable. I'm not one of...

    A lot of people define TWO "draw lengths" and this is probably what you're thinking of:

    1) the bow's DL- the mechanical DL of the bow. The distance from the throat of the grip to the string at...

    Same here, only 7 Hoyts used. No issues. I did have a limb get a tiny splinter, but that was #1 hunting bow and I'm pretty sure I did that when I was pushing the bow in front of me while stalking a...

    As Padgett noted, Gold Tip are extremely popular arrows at less money. Buying anything is a matrix of factors and you pick from that matrix. So, for me, Gold Tip XT Hunters have the best place in...

    I started shooting Hoyt/Easton in 1988 and I've just stuck with them. I've had other bows- Martin and Bowtech- but always come back to Hoyt. They're good performers, solid, easily and effectively...

    It looks like you're drawing too far into your face (past your eye). I bet if you'd hold your arm straighter (not locked, just straighter) and KEEP IT THERE, that your anchor would fall forward just...

    The correct DL is more important. Anything new will feel awkward at first. I'm more comfortable with a 1/2" longer DL but I don't shoot as well and after I got used to the correct DL, IT feels...

    I like angled because it's easier to look uphill, it requires a lower tripod height (more stable), and once set up, you can look down at the ground instead of bending your neck to see thru a straight...

    There are a _zillion_ possibilites to test, so what I did was start with 2 oz on my 10" front Bee Stinger (which is really 11" by the time the V-bar is on) and 4 oz on the side bar. My goal was to...
