    Default Cam Module Swap Out

    Has anyone changed out their cam module/s from the non-metal (plastic) type to the aluminum type? Was wondering if any advantage/difference was noted. I'm not sure they are still available. Any input?

    Found no difference on my pantera's going to an alloy mod. Didn't gain speed, didn't loose speed but it was stronger I guess.

    Thanx Destroyer, I was wondering several things, you answered most. I can move the plastic one when it is installed by torqueing it w/ the tip of my finger. I thought it may be moving by centrifical force on release. I wondered if the metal module would be more rigid. Sorry but it is hard to explain. Probably not much to worry about but I think a change to metal will ease my mind.

    I believe you are correct in your statements, but you're also right when you say that it probably isn't much to worry about. I highly doubt that the very slight if any movement of the module will effect accuracy.

    Best reason to change it, confidence is a huge part of archery. You need to be able to concentrate and this sort of thing won't help.

    After having a fiber module blow on me with a hell of a bang and possible limb damage [ weakened] I will never use a fiber one again.

    Yup...bigbob29 after following your trials and tribulations with your bow I do believe a change of module is in order for me. Hope all your bow issues are working out and you are back shooting.

    Howdy CJChasman,
    Yeah, I dont want to be drawing my bow with one eye on the module each time. I have accepted that with the current limbs I am now limited to a 55# bow and not the 70# it should be. It still shoots well, so cut my losses and use it as is. Unless of course anyone has a single 17'' carbon weave elite limb in 8m code laying around?

    Got a module shipping out from Martin...$8.00 and change. Not a big price to pay for peace of mind although I wish it was free lol. I'll keep my eye out for the limb bigbob29.
