View Full Version : Scepter V cam question

01-24-2013, 01:30 PM
I am in the process of ordering my 2013 bow. I am liking the Scepter V. The cams come in the 1.5 and 2.0 to cover the shorter draw lengths and the longer. I fall around 29. I believe I would be able to use either size. Adjusting to the longer size on the 1.5 and adjusting to the shorter size on the 2.0. Any one know what would be the best choice since I would fit either?:confused:

Just from what I've seen the 2.0 cams would give slightly better performance and slightly smoother draw. I had one earlier this year with 1.5 cams and could not get the draw length short enough for me. I shoot 26 3/4" and although the S-5 was listed at 26.5" to 30+ the shortest I could get it was 27 1/4", that after adding 15 twists to the string and 5 less twists out of each cable. This years model is listed at 27" on the short cams. Go figure.

My 2012 scepter V has the 2.0 cams, performs very well at my 29.5 draw lenght. Can't see why it would be different at 29.

I did notice that the draw on my Shadowcats 1.5 cam seems not as smooth as it could be. Could be something like you have said with the larger being better. Think that's what I will order.:cool:
