    Default Nemesis Q&A

    ok, with all the hub-ub going on about the outgoing nemesis style, i havent heard if their draw lengths run true to spec or not. it's been pretty well reported that the onza's runs a little longer than spec according to info on here. will the nemesis run a little long also ( like can it attain a little over +30") since they share the same cam system ?
    my guess isnt that the onza's "run long on draw" as much as they were " marked short on the spec sheet". let me know guys.

    I looked at my 2011 Nemesis and my 2012 scepter and both modules are on number 5.

    Do they both have the same cams or does the Nemisis use 2.0 cams?

    I intended to measure the weight of my new Nemesis before putting any accessories to it, but of course I forgot to do that. My setup process is still going on, so I might still remove the stuff and measure it later today. I guess it's heavier than the specs; I measured my Onza before and I think it was about 4.6 lbs instead of the specified 4.0, without any accessories on it.

    I just measured my Nemesis without accessories: 4.63 pounds. For comparison, my Onza 3's weight was 4.74 pounds (I have measured it earlier).

    I used a normal, cheap kitchen scales for the measurement. For simple "calibration" to check the reliability of the scales, I measured the weight of one litre of water and the result was correct.

    Big thanks putting in the time for all the replies. a 1/4" isnt a big deal and well within reason, but 1/2-1" is stretching it. if a bow is presumably 27-30" specs, and some run long and some dont, too me that means there may be to many variables involved in the manufacturing process or assembly. QC should take measurements,etc., and if it isnt what it is supposed to be then the spec sheet should be changed, or at the very least have the bow tagged at whatever it measured out too, imo. i read a thread where someone bought a bow(onza?) and it was too long/short etc., and then it just didnt work out for them, and that is preventable.
    as far as the weight being over , i know that we're splitting hairs and not exactly in a controlled scientific testing lab, but people frequently purchase a bow based on its size/weight/dimensions. things like that need to be very close. on the other hand if it weighed less than specs i bet most folks wouldnt care .
    phantoza i bet postage hasnt been exactly cheap to finland for all them martins from washington state, lol.. what does the onza weigh fully set up?
