    No other bow has ruined more hunts that the first gen shallow grove cams d350/d340. What does D350LE stand for?Derailer 350 limited explosion? The insanity is so much better.

    Heres the Bowtech Destroyer LE

    I shoot the shallow groove destroyer. It's pretty simple don't torque the bow like a mad man and it'll shoot just fine. I have easily over 1000 shots on mine with no problems. Its not made for rookies....

    The first Monster 6's had the same issue, eh? So it was not only limited to the Destroyers.

    I had a D340 with shallow cam tracks and had no problems with it.

    However, I will agree with you that I am not comfortable with any bow that has shallow cam tracks. Not for hunting.

    I would reckon that BowTech has rectified the issue of any shallow cam tracks for future bows.

    The problem is. How long it took them to fix the problem. I know Mathews took care of it on the M6 almost immediatly.

    Yes, cannot argue with that one. And I'm not picking on the Monster. Just using it as an example.

    My point is, it's all water under the bridge now.

    No offense taking here. I don't shoot a Mathews anymore. I'm just stuck with the name I'm to the point, I would make a donation to AT if they would let me change my username

    Thats funny .don't torque the bow on let down in a hunting situation 1000% time even if you can with every other bow made except the first gen monster.did you get your r&d check from bowtech?they fixed the problem so there must of been a problem.the fact is the d350 was a very good shooting bow and as long as you shot the arrow you were fine,but letting down? I think the insanity is a outstanding bow.

    The Destroyer is a fine hunting bow as many will attest. But there can really be no debate concerning Bowtech's lack of timely response to production issues of their bows. They eventually take care of things but I just don't think that they can take the approach that they are unaware of any problems with a straight face (their first reaction of addressing manufacturing problems). I have a lack of respect for that kind of nonchalant attitude toward customer service.

    This is not bashing at all. It is calling a spade a spade and providing concrete proof of it. The evidence is there.

    However, the innovation and creativity that is invested into the design of their bows is incredible. In the case of the short groove cams on the Destroyer and the limb flaking of the Invasions, there were problems that had to be worked out even after production. But once those kinks were worked out you had one heck of a compound bow in your hands.

    Let's at least give credit where credit is due.

    Which bow company has never had a problem with any of their bows? I can't think of any right now. And I'm pretty sure the LE is not a shallow grooved cam. soo...................

    Exactly, onepin is obviously just going off crap on here and never owned or shot a d350 much to say something like that. Now I have to admit I have not shot the insanity but it cannot possibly be worlds better as the destroyer shoots too damn good.

    Their maybe a problem with the 2010 cams but so far I have had none, I have a 2011 and a 2012 with the new finish and the 2011 and 2012 has the deep grove cam I like the destroyer as you can tell but I will be the first to say CS is not great.

    I had a 2010 Bowtech D350 as well and never once had an issue. It sounds like the only people who had any problems with it were ones torquing it like it was a frisbee! Anyway, they depend the groves almost immediately to fix the problem for people who couldn't stop torquing it. This new Limited Edition looks awesome. The guy at the shop said the limbs look amazing. I'll have mine on order by the end of the day!

    Geesh, it's an old issue that was fixed a long time ago. Move on and enjoy the new LE Destroyer if you want and if you don't that's ok too. In the end it's about shooting what works for you! Can't wait to take a peek at it in the shop this week!

    I had a xlr8 derail while trying to check the timing. My fault but Mathews wouldn't. Give me replacement cams. So no the didn't do it fast enough.

    Bowtech fixed the problem just like mathews did. When someone had a problem with derailment, they took it to the shop and got the cam replaced. If you didn't have a problem, you didn't get it fixed.

    THe d350 derailment problem seemed to be concentrated with people who had a 29 to 30 draw length. With the longer draw, the cam rotated far enough that the string didn't sit in much of the groove so they deepened part of the track so it would keep it in the groove during let down or excessive torque.
