    We have ONE tech. Unfortunately that doesn't leave much time for playing around with various bow setups.

    Martin has a crap load of techs ... us - just takes some personal initiative to test and figure things out. I'm personally planning on playing around with the Fury XT quite a bit this Spring/Summer.

    Man...if you only knew how much I would love to get out from behind the desk and do something constructive! I'm in a small room with no windows and obnoxious, buzzing fluorescent lighting 40 hours a week.

    DP is right, isn't this partly why we have this forum and we are here?

    Default Okay...I'll bite

    Then send me the cams and stuff to do the research and I'll post the results (honestly) and send back the slower materials...

    So...I dont know what to tell you. But I still say the cost is not worth the increased speed.
    Pretty much mirrors what I have found comparing the Hybrix 2.0 and 1.5 cams, except the difference I saw was only 6-8 fps. There was a slightly smaller gap when comparing the Nitro 2.0 to the 1.5, about 4-6 fps.
    An interesting note to this is when I put a set of Hybrix 3.0 cams on an 09 AX that originally came with 2.0 cams, after a good bit of time figuring string specs trying to keep the A-A, brace and DW close to that of the 2.0's, I was able to keep the A-A/brace the same, the DL range went from 27-30 w/ the 2.0's to 27.5-30.5 w/the 3.0's and I lost 1/2 pound on the DW. The DL with the 2.0's always ran just about 1/4" long while with the 3.0's the DL is right on the money. The 3.0 cams give about an extra 2fps, with 1/2 pound less DW and a 1/4" less DL and the transition to the valley is a little smoother. Just my .02's
