    Default Nitro 2.0 & Hybrix 2.0 cams????

    I was looking at the two cams and don't really see a difference in the string and cable points on the cams. The Hybrix cable hooks on the outter edge of the cam because of the cut out and the Nitro cam hooks a little farther in on the cam. 2 questions....

    1. Are the cams interchangable? (with the same string and cable set)

    2. Is there a proformance difference???????

    As far as I know they are interchangeable. Practically identical in form and function except for badging and that the Hybrix were the first to be "skeletonized" for a sleeker look and some weight reduction.

    Based on pictures, I think the Nitro 3 cams (for 2013 lineup) are too thin. I prefer the older ones, they certainly are more rugged - even the Hybrix. I think a hunting bow needs some ruggedness.

    I had seen a few threads about the Hybrix 2.0 cams having the string stud pull out of the cam. If I have this happen I will just change over the Nitro 2.0 cams. I agree the bow needs to be rugged if your going to drag it into the woods.

    the Nitro 3 cams are actually stronger than the Nitro 2 cams. They are made out of a much tougher 7000 series aluminum
