Hi,
I've been shooting a bowtech assassin 60lbs 29" dl. I only started shooting 2 years ago. I bought it to hunt but I've tried target shooting and I'm currently more and more interested in that. I'v been competing (WA) and I currently shoot 560-570 indoors.

I'm thinking of buying a Podium x elite so I need advice on a couple of things (or more...):

1.which cam type should I buy? spiral pro or gtx? I'm worried about the letoff because the bowtech has a high letoff and these bows have a lot more holding weight. The reduced valley of spiral pros also worries me a little...

2. how does the draw length measurement compare between the two brands? Can I order the new hoyt bow in 29" dl or does it need to be different?

I live in Portugal and I'm left handed so I can NOT try any of these bows before ordering.
Any help would be greatly appreciated ;-)
Thanks

If you're interested in going to a PXE, I'd get GTX cam's. They're less aggressive than the Spiral Pro's and will be an easier conversion.

Draw length on the Hoyt will run about 1/8-1/4 long generally.

Hi, so you think I should be OK with a GTX cam #4 or #5, right?

One last question: being almost 5' 11" tall I'm thinking of the 40" model since I only shoot WA. Do you think I'm right or should I look into the 37" version also?

Best regards,
Rui

You could shoot either one with good fitment. I'd get the #4 cam regardless. It'll put you closer to the top end of the spectrum on the cam and give you better efficiency and performance.

If you're buying new, 40. If you're looking used, either that you could get the best deal on since you're a lefty.
