    Default Nitro 1.5 vs Nitro 2.0 Cams

    Other than the draw length range difference what is the performance difference of the cams? If there is a previous discussion on this I have not been able to find it through the search function so I figured I would just ask.

    Only reason I ask is because eventually I'll have a Cougar FC with 1.5 cams and was wondering what I could expect to give up with the 1.5s set at the top of the DL vs the 2.0 cams at the bottom of the DL range.

    From what I've read, the Nitro 2.0 cams where introduced for longer draw archers, and that there is'nt a performance difference. However, I have been incorrect a few other times.

    This is sort of apples to oranges because you are talking about 2 different bows with the different cams.
    If on the same bow, set at the same specs, the 2.0's would have a bit smoother draw cycle and be just a hair faster.
