Have an old Renegade single cam bow and I feel a great deal of hand vibration, like a kick out of it when I shoot it.
Now I finally just purchased a D350 so I'm not sure if the bow was this way all of the time and I'm just now noticing it since I've been shooting my new bow?
What should a guy look for?
I want my son to use it.
Thanks

the renegade bow was a great bow for awhile
yes and no strings stretch preformance goes down
tiller is vey important
get a new set of strings pre stretched and twisted to length
you will be shooting a like new bow

Tiller is that critical in single cam bows??

Just had new string put on last summer, do you think that really could be it? If so I took alot folks advice on AT and want to get started on doing my own work on my bows, so how hard is it putting on new strings? I have a press ect.

A new single cam can get out of tune.

Strings may stretch a bit...

IT could be that the destroyer shoots much nicer.. and your just maybe noticing your old renegade is like that?

its because your destroyer is so much smoother, but single cam bows can definatly get out of tune.

Since you replaced the string last summer, it probably has had enough shots (~100-200) through it to stretch it to where it should be reasonnably stable. Having done this, it would be appropriate to reset the bow to its original specs, including:

  • Tiller (since only one cam, measure to cam axles - place a tight string (or long sraight edge) over/against each axle, do not use the bow string as the cam & wheel vary in dimension)
  • Brace height.
  • Axle to axle.
  • Draw weight.
  • Draw length.
  • Cam timing.
  • Nock point.
  • Peep location.
Good luck.

Just for thought, My bow gained a major hand vibration and it would almost kick out of my hand it had a cracked limb rocker and lot of shooting strings stretched out of tune so to speak
