I have an 06 Hoyt ProElite with XT3000 with #3 cams which goes from 28-30.5" draw length i beleave. I always thought i was a 28" draw, but it seems to be a little long. I can just get a #2 cam, and with the proper bow press, and a new set of strings, shorten my draw length to about were it should be? Thanks.

Changing the base cam size will more than likely change your draw weight by as much as 10lbs. Call Hoyt and check with them. They will be able to tell you what you got, what you need, and how much it will change.

I've done it a couple times with 2000s and DW never changes more than a few pounds. I'm guessing you would lose 2 or 3 at most, if that, unless the 3000 limbs are different.

To answer your ? though, yes you can get the next smaller cams and a set of string and cables and change them out, you will need a press. You can go to the HOYT tune charts to figure out what length string/cables you will need.

#3 cam on that bow is 30 Inch length measured in position E.
So you can set it back to 28 Inch in position A.

Swapping to cam #2 wil make the bow 29 Inch.
You can get back to 27 inch minimum.

My advise is to get a setup in position D-E-F.
It's much nicer to shoot then A-B-C.
The bow reacts different and the valley is also different.

About the limbs and poundage lose... I never noticed swapping the same cam.
But getting a spiral cam will indeed change the poundage.

....Yep, what He said......Get a set of #1 base cams, that will make Your max. draw range at 28"....To me, the Hoyt cams, (or any cam that uses a module to adjust draw length) shoot best when Your draw length is at the end of the adjustment range...Give Hoyt a call, they will fix You right up........Harperman
