Need some opinions. Thinking bout getting a TR2 would like your alls thoughts on the pro's and cons of 2 cams vs. 1.
Thanks, Russ

personally I don't think there is much difference. A single cam bow would be easier to tune and maybe a little smoother draw, less money, but you can't go wrong with either one. Try them both and see which one feels better to you.

Almost took the words right outa my mouth Cyclepath. Only thing I can add, is you're going to get a few extra fps out of the two cams with the same draw weight.

Thanks guys. Can't try it out its on AT. Still shoot the one thats on my profile so comparing mine to another single cam would be impossible. I'm sure they've come a long way in 10 yrs. As far as speed goes I'm not really a speed freak so thats not really why I'm thinking bout it. Just that after 10yrs. think it's time to upgrade. The guy only wants $315.00

I'd go the 2 cams. Single cam bows can be very hard to tune, sometimes impossible. Things like correcting peep twist, etc, is easier on 2 cam bows, shorter string - requires less twists. The best thing about 2 cams is you don't need the same draw weight to get fast speeds.

Level nock travel is still a big issue with single cam bows and is extremely hard to diagnose.

You got that right. Martin's Accutrak single cam is doing about 320 fps IBO.:cool: It's a very good cam IMO. I'm still shooting a 2007 Jaguar, but I can't complain. It's very accurate, and the IBO rating for it is 310 fps(Dyna Cam). I will upgrade in the future though.

As to your question, I'd go with the TR2.:cool:

Do a search, maybe using my name. I've written many times about chrono results I had with bow bows. One was a 2008 FireCat (dual cam) and a 2009 Moab (sigle cam). Except for the cam both bows were the same.

The FireCat (TR2) chrono'd between 15 and 20 fps faster at the same draw weight, draw length, etc. Or looking at it another way, the dual cam produced the same speed, but at 7-8# less draw weight. The draw weight difference made the the FireCat seem almost as easy to draw as the Moab; almost an imperceptable difference.

The choice is yours, but just throwing this info at you.

Decisions, decisions. :confused: I go with personal preference. With each cam system having half dozen of this and 6 of that, I'd go with a single cam and I like duel cam systems. Just plain simplicity is the single cam. Nonetheless, with today's great strings all one needs is experience and either cam system can be easy to work with.

I've shot left handed and right(I'm right handed). I was fairly accurate at 20 yards shooting lefty, but I don't use Dad's bow enough.LOL

I shoot left handed or right handed. But I prefer lefty.

You guys are talented. I can barely shoot right handed and that is my strong hand.

Me too, and I am left eye dominant to boot. Someday I'll try shooting lefty.

Thanks for the input guys. Think I'm gonna get the TR2. It maxs at 60# think I'll go down t about 55-58#. Shot 70# for a few yrs. imo 70# is over rated. Lefty here too. Thanks again

Good stuff. Lighter draw weight is easier to draw so you might be more accurate as well. I've found over the years that lower poundage/hard cam is easier to draw than higher poundage/single cam. My shoulder knows the difference too! ;)
