    Default Bow conversions

    Has anyone converted a single cam bow to a dual cam using the existing lower cam? Also am curious if a twin Acu-Trak would work?

    That would be an interesting project to be sure, and I bet it could be done with some patience and trial and error. Just off the cuff, I think you'd need to get an opposite-handed cam to do it, so if you're bow is right handed you'd need a left handed cam to put on the top so the cables and string would be on the same side of the riser...

    That's what I was thinking too. Kinda curious what the draw would be like and how much speed would be gained. Not that speed is the goal, twin cams shoot flatter. The Acu-Trak is so smooth by itself was wondering if it would stay that way.
