    Destroyer owners thread

    Just thought I'd start a destroyer thread. Perhaps this thread can grow to be a useful resource for all destroyer owners.
    I'll start it with a question: What's the easiest way to tell the difference between a 2010 and a 2011 destroyer?



    Also, here's a link to baldyhunter's yoke tuning guide:

    On the camo bows the limbs are black on 2011 and camo on 2010

    Destroyer is my favorite bow that i've owned. I shoot it great and ive never had an issue. I'm always curious as to how so many people seem to have issues with such a great bow.

    Just got a 2013 destroyer 350le for Christmas, haven't set it up yet, still in the process of outfitting it. I haven't shot a bow in 15yrs so I will have alot of questions, bear with me.

    I bought this bow from the guy who bought it here:

    http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showth...2011+destroyer

    It's listed as a 2011 yet has the camo limbs. Can you tell if it has the shallow groove cams?

    I might be wrong but i'm pretty sure that's a 2010. It could still have deep groove cams though if it was a late run. Does any of the string stick above the cam?

    Yes a tiny bit sticks above the cam on a side view.

    Dang! Those are two really smoking hot looking Destroyers. P&Y only, did you find any noticeable benefit from the bowjaxs on the limbs?

    I can't say for sure. The bow sounds like a mouse fart when you shoot it though! :-)

    Mine is very quiet also so I saw no reason to put anything on the strings and limbs. The string stop was probably the biggest factor with noise for me.

    Chaded, so you're saying the aftermarket string stop made the bow even quieter? Mines pretty quiet, but the noise is strange, like a very light version of the noise a racket makes when hitting a tennis ball.

    That is the noise that is elimanated when getting rid of the hollow carbon STS. It works I have a solid from Tony 219er also!

    Is the back of the riser threaded where the original rod goes? Or it the hole smooth and the rod is only held in place by the allen head in the side of the riser?

    It is held in by a screw.

    Smooth. I filled mine with silicone.

    Where does the ata and string in relation to the timing dots end up when you tuners get your 340's dialed. I have custom threads on mine from a reputable builder and my ata ended up at 32.25" but the string is up against the outside [string side] timing dot on the lower cam and even with the dot on the top dot. I won't have enough twist in the string if I try to get the ata any longer or the string centered in the timing dots. Also has a bit of vibe after the shot after shooting my Cpxl.

    The only thing I don't like about my Destroyer 340 is the noise........ After reading this thread I'm sure it is my string stop........ I'm pulling 60 lbs on 60 lb limbs........ loud tennis ball sound....... it does quiet down noticeably when I shoot a victory 350 arrow vs a 400....... I would like to shoot a HV 350...... but I need it to be quite........ What and where did y'all get your after market string stops...... I've got to get one asap.
