I could be wrong, but I believe Hard cam is a "speed" cam And A soft Cam is more of a smooth drawing cam but not as much speed. Sorry I dont know what those bows have on them. Shawn

Thats about it I know for sure that Mathews wants you to use hard cam for arrow charts I'd be pretty sure that bowtech would be the same.

Hello savedbygrace:

It's just terminology that the archery software programs use
to classify the speed range for a bow.

Hard cam: very fast IBO speed rating...290 fps or more for OnTarget2!
Medium cam: slightly slower IBO speed rating
Soft cam: slower IBO speed rating than the medium cam category

Mathews and Bowtech cams are considerd hard cams. Parkers EZ draw cam and Alpines Stalker2 cam are soft cams. They both have very different draw force curves.
