    Default warthog

    I have an old warthog that I fitted with fiber-optic sights and a whisker biscuit and the thing shoots great. My son has a high-dollar Matthews & I out shoot him @ 40 yards with mine. He couldn't believe his eyes. Only thing about the bow that I didn't like was that the cables vibrated together but I solved that with a new guide that holds them apart more. Now if I only had a little more let-off. I noticed what appear to be some alternate axle bores in the wheels & I don't know exactly what they're for & would appreciate some enlightenment on the subject if possible.

    Do you still have that Warthog? Is it all wood? Ui.

    Default Pictures of bow cams

    [QUOTE=fxr1991;2661]I owned a Warthog magnum when they first came out. Very radical cams at that time. Anytime I went the range, where I purchased the bow, the owner would always stack an extra bale up in the lane I was shooting. The Warthog would blow through his bales and into the wall behind them. Very powerful. The down side was the cams were so radical they were to much for the wood laminated limbs and wood risers. Had my limbs replaced twice and the riser finally split. I think they went to a more forgiving cam or wheels. I still liked it and have been looking for another one.

    Hi, Can you send me pictures of your Warthog cams with the cable routing, I am trying to replace my cables, but just doesn't look right. I should of taken pictures before. So can you please do that for me, thanks.

    I do not know, I only commented on the post being made 4 years ago, and that was back in April. Sorry.
