View Full Version : Cam change? 06" Slayer

04-14-2010, 11:49 AM
I have a set of "B" cams coming. The bow has a fairly new set of strings and cables from prior owner. I see that the cables are only a 1/4 " shorter between the "C" and "B" cams . Do you think I could just twist up a 1/4 " on the cables and just have a new string made?Just want to try and get by for awhile and see if I really like shooting left handed.

The cables are all the same length for all three sizes of NOS cams.

The Slayer C cam cable length, is a a typo. It's missing the "2"

But I'll still need a new string correct? Thanks for all your help Copterdoc!!!

Yep, you need a shorter string.

With NOS cams, the ATA, is always about 1.5" shorter than the cable length.

For the B cams, the string is always 13.5" longer than the cables (unless the bow has a CCS cable guard).

For the C cam, the string is always 19" longer than the cables.

You can "fudge" it either way about 1/4", but it will change your DL and DW.

Longer string = higher.

Longer cables = lower.
