I am trying to find out what the advantage of one over the other is ?
Mr. Solo Cam preached "Solo Cam" for years and years because he owned the patent. And apparently (so I'm told) he was paid a royalty for each bow produced, regardless of brand. Heck, unless I'm mistaken he "kind of" had all the other brands selling "his product!" ~ I think we all would have done pretty much the same thing! :grin:Consider this, Mr. Solo Cam had to eat his words and now produces dual cam bows.
I suspect it is marginally "more efficient." However.....Nail on the head. The gentleman who stated a single cam could be a fast as a duel/hybrid/binary canned bow needs to think of it in very simple terms... Imagine you rig up a pulley system to lift a 300 pound piece of furniture. Physics is not my area of expertise, but I guarantee you a 2 pulley system is more efficient & more powerful.
the main difference now it usually single cam has a smoother draw cycle and as far as speed its not a huge differenceI am trying to find out what the advantage of one over the other is ?
That timing problem has been solved with binary cams.It's a personal preference thing. I prefer dual cams but the single cam guys like their bows better.....the only advantage I've seen of a single cam is when they go out of time it's not as big of a deal....you lose a touch of speed but it's not nearly as much of an issue as a 2 cam bow out of time
Can't comment on the FireCat. I was "turned off" of Martin completely when I began reading about their "3 piece risers" years ago. They may have worked fine, but I didn't like the concept. (I'm not saying th FireCat is 3-piece, I can't recall.) ~ I stopped following the Martin lineup, but used to "keep a watch" on their premium Rytera line brand, until it merged back into Martin.Have any of you shot the Martin firecat 360 single cam? Is this a good bow for someone with average shooting skill and knowledge?
