Nicely done! Did you think it was easy? Is there anything I left out? Anything you can suggest to others?

Some things that you can do now.....
Notice there is just one spacer for the idler wheels. You can take this part out, go to your local hardware store (they will be white) and get the same ID/OD with a width that is half of this one. Then you can shim your rollers inwards about three narrow washers each side. I have done this on mine so that I just barely clear fletches....reasoning....I really dont know, because it had no effect on the tune, or how it shot. I just figured the narrower I get the cables the less torque on the limbs, bearings etc.... just a suggestion.

I hope you like it!

That's great news! The cam deal sure does suck! I even swallowed some pride and emailed BowTech WEEKS ago to see if there some arrangement we could arrive at......haven't heard a thing.

which bow is this on and cant these be purchased for a 82nd?

fine job, looks great...
These were designed for the 2009 Admiral, Captain and Sentinel. I don't think it will work on anything else. The spacing for the rollers, the bolt pattern for mounting....it's all custom made for those bows.

I guess sometimes the bridges we burn can't be rebuilt can they?

Too bad too. Looks like a nice mod.

What's sort of funny is that a set of commander cams are $80 retail and what is BT gonna charge you for just one cam. :eek: I think that someone doesn't want this to take off. It's tough to admit that an average shooter can make a design that much better. :wink:

:mg: AVERAGE SHOOTER!? lol! you are right! Average a best! The cams for the CP's are invoiced at $250.00 PER CAM! I saw an invoice! I guess thats the only way Bowtech can insure they get the duds back eh?

250.00 per cam + 175.00 limbs + 100 strings and cables = 775.00 that means the riser only costs about 100.00. Heck buy a brand new bow and part it out and make money. LOL

The only reason for charging that much for that cam is to keep guys from making it a shoot through. A set of spiral cams for my Hoyt doesn't even come close to that. I don't think that there is a company out there that charges that much for one cam. I also don't think that there is a company out there that cares if you buy cams from them for any reason. What a load of horse pooey.

Because then it would be a Mathews and not a Bowtech! :) ;) I don't see the need. There are many could've-should've's that I have ran across. What it turned out to be is a direct bolt on, no modification easy to install and shoots GREAT product. I think I am going to be busy in 2010 when these starting winning and turning a few heads! :) At least it's my dream and I can make it as BIG as I want! ;) lol!

i hope there isnt any way bowtech could "steal" this idea on future bows?
sorry not a bowtech guy, have no idea about what they have, only by seeing how they have handled this situation.
