Thread: High Country Machined Supreme

  1. #1

    High Country Machined Supreme

    I have no clue how old it is. From what I have read, I think early to mid 1990's. It is a really nice bow, and since it was free, I really like it. The only thing I don't like about it, is the 30"+ or so draw length. The guys at the local shop said it couldn't be adjusted unless I change the cams. It has the non-modular ratchet cams. I have called High Country Archery, and they can't help me. They actually pointed me to this forum. I guess you guys come highly recommended. I need a 26" draw length, or something close to that. It was set to 70lb draw, but by loosening the limb screws, I now have it set to 60lbs. Which isn't bad, but since I can't draw to the break without over stretching, it is a real PITA. So is there other cams I can install? If you need more info, ask me. I can tell you only what I know, which isn't a hole heck of a lot.

    I am thinking that if you want to be able to shoot the bow you are going to have to get another cam system and use it on the bow. You might be able to get some hoyt cams or you might be able to get an MQ1 mathews cam to work on the bow. If you can find some used cams you will then need some new strings and cables to make the new cams work. If you can find what you need on here I am guessing that your total cost to get it shooting will be $150 to $200.

    If you can find someone with a 30" draw and sell it to them for a real good price ($50 to $100) and then take that money plus a little more and get you a good used bow off here which has the correct draw length for you.

    I've never seen a high country supreme with hatchet cams that modules could not be changed...However it was popular to put the revoultion cams on them which made them a tick faster...I bet thats what happend...

    can you post a pic the bow and cam?

    I had a Machined Supreme. It had the hatchet cams. Mine had modules. I think the guys at your shop don't have a clue.
    I have never seen any of their hatchet cams that didn't have modules. The modules will probably be hard to come by.
    For what you would have to pay in strings and cams to get the bow to work, you would be money ahead to but
    a good used bow off of here.

    We have mods for them, but its not going to help you because ares are all 29-30 inch also. Im sure someone on here has had one of these with a short draw and will help.

    I think 28 was as low as you can go on that bow without short stringing it The E mod was 32" and the A mod was 28 I shot one of them for 11 years.

    Man if you could post a pics of the cams that would help. There was a company called Revalution archery. That made hatchet style cams that where not mod adjust. You could have a bow that has been convered to the Rev cam. They were a little faster than the stock cams on the High Counrty bow.

    can you post a pic the bow and cam?
    Will do, sir.
    The pics 611 and 608 (the last three digits) are the top cam, which is marked 'W2'. Pics 601 and 599 are the the bottom cam, marked 'W1'.

    this is the standard hatchet cam
    the A1 is the shortest mods for that cam, on this bow it would be 27'' draw that would be the shortest draw

    Where can I get this 'A' mod?

    There is another thread and I'll quote from it:

    Unlike many bows make today, the old HCA hatchet cam bows will shoot very well in just about any configuration. You can have the cams parallel with the mainstring in the static(undrawn)postion, or back rolled so that there is 2" of gap between the hatchet and the string. As long as both cams are in time, you are golden. The key to making those bows drive tacks is to time them at full draw. This takes two people. Make sure to have an arrow loaded and use the release you normally shoot with. Once at full draw you must slowly start to let the bow down until the string starts to break away from the string track in the module. This might take several attempts as the bow is trying to cam over at that point. The trick is to have both top and bottom cams breaking away at the same time. You are only adjusting buss cables to do this. If you cannot get both top and bottom to break at exactly the same time......make sure the bottom cam breaks away first by a hair....not the top cam.
    So, if I can find the 'A' mod, I could still bring the draw length down a bit according to what BigCountry has said.

    I think to be honest buy the time you can find the moduels or cams etc , I think unless you love this bow your better off hanging it on the wall & putting your money on a newer bow.

    Those look pretty similar to the Fury and Furious cams from Martin...if the modules/cams you're getting still don't do the trick, I bet the Fury or Furious cams would work for sure...

    just to clarify for you
    mod = draw length
    A1 = 27''
    A = 28''
    B = 29''
    C = 30''
    D = 31''
    E = 32''
    Harness is 43''
    string is 59''
    hope this helps
