archerX7 forgot to mention that the Fury XT cam also has a rotating module. I personally haven't shot the XT cam. I had a 2009 Moab wt the M2Pro cam simply to compare it to my 2008 FireCat with Cat cams. I've shot compound bows for nearly 40 years. All were four wheel or dual cam bows till I got my first taste of a single cam with a 1998 Golden Eagle Litespeed. Then I shot all single cam bows while with Pearson for four years. When I joined Martin in 2004 and had a chance to go back to dual cams I jumped rigt on it.
Dual cams just can be manipulated more for finer tuning. They used to go out of sync when the first generation fastflight strings/cables came out, but with better string materials and production methoids strings are much better these days.
Now, comparing the Cat cam an M2Pro I stayed with the dual(binary) version for several reasons, but one in particular. Using a chrono I was able to get a given speed out of the Cat cam. To achieve the same speed out of the M2Pro I had to shoot 8# more draw weight. It's true that the Cat/Hybrix, Nitro cam has a harsher draw cycle, but only if comparing them at the same draw weight. With that 8# less draw weight they didn't seem near as harsh and I really preferred the lower weight.
In my opinion this is how a person should compare bows if at all possible. Set them for the exact (measured) draw length and shoot them over a chrono and set them for the same performance. Then compare draw cycles. I have never been caught up in having to shoot a bow at a given draw weight. Afterall, it's just a number. I set all my bows to where they shoot comfortably for me and ignore the draw weight. All I do is measure everything for future reference in the event that the rigging needs changed---or give me a starting point on where to set my next bow.
