12-25 SS Bow Choices
Thomas Hahn at the Sportsman's Warehouse store in Meridian, Idaho talked to me about fitting someone for a compound bow. "We will determine if you want a single cam or dual cam. Single cam you have an either wheel on top with a single cam on the bottom limb so you only have what they call a bus cable so you have a single bus cable so you do not have a timing issue between the cams. On the twin cam you have two bus cables so you have two cams matching on top and bottom and sometimes the string will stretch and you will have a timing issue and you will have to bring it back in to us so we can put a twist in the string so you can get your timing back so you get the best arrow flight you possibly can out of the bow but single cams, when they came out, eliminated probably 90% of that. If I were to read between the lines would it be fair to say that you were a single cam fan? I favor the single cam but I have a lot of twin cams. It just depends on what I am doing with it. When I go down to Vegas to an indoor tournament, I only shoot a 30 pound twin cam bow because I am shooting indoors at 20 yards. The twin cam gives me the performance I am looking for there. When I am hunting or shooting long-distance I prefer the single cam. One thing I can tell you is that Tom has lots of experience. I have been shooting archery for over 30 years and have competed at the national level.
