Will the Cam system that is on the Firecat and slayer x be offered in 65% letoff? On your websight they only have it listed at 80%. I personally like the extra KE and speed the 65% gives you Thanks

I can'r rightly answer whether the Cat cam will be abvailable in 65% or not. Without being critical though, I've chrono'd lots of bows over the years with changeable modules (65%, 75%, and 85%) all on the same bow and the actual speed difference is not that much. Usually only about 4 fps going from 85% down to 65%. So really there is little gain in speed and even less in KE.

Now if for some reason you just like the holding weight of 65% then so be it.

Thinking about it there may be a way of cheating the present Cat cam to get 65%. It has a draw stop, right? Well, set the module for a longer draw, but set the draw stop for something a little shorter so the cam never rolls into the valley. That's how other manufacturers cheat the public.
