    Will the draw weight change from a cam change?

    On a 2012 Hoyt Alpha Elite 50-60lbs with #2 RKT cams would the draw weight change by changing the cams to #1 RKT cams? If so, what would it change to?
    Thank you.

    HOYT #1 cam is smaller in diameter than the HOYT #2 cam,
    so you are going to lose some draw weight.

    not to mention your draw length would change also....i believe. smaller cam would make your draw length longer due to the smaller diameter, unless you replaced your string with a shorter one.

    you will loose about 3 to 5 lbs from past experience . i just put a set of number 2 fuels on a rampage xt from a 3 fuel cam and it lost 4 lbs so it should be about the same for you .

    Even with the drop in pounds keep the ATA at spec and you'll be almost right at the advertised draw weight. You will probably gain speed if you were using your #2 cam on the short end and are switching to a #1 cam on the long side.
