    Hey Topnock, welcome to the forum! Whatever your question, you will find the answer here. We even work on whirled peas sometimes. Your answers will come as soon as the experts (which I am not) ponder your question. You may even be one of the experts yourself! Some great new talent has shown up here lately.

    Each one gives an adjustment of 3". Assume the bow you are looking at has a draw length range from 27" to 31". The Nitro/Hybrix 1.5/3S cam will adjust from 27"-29". The 2.0/3L cam will cover from 28" to 31". They both use the same module so adjustments are in 1/2" increments. Notice there is a 1" overlap where, if you fall within such range, either cam will work. In such a case I've found the larger cam to produce a smoother draw and slightly more speed for a given setup.

    Now, this is paper figures. Never, ever accept catalog figures or limbs stickers to be just what the bow is set for. Many bows draw longer than marked or stated in catalogs; some as much as a full inch. In other words have a bow you intend to buy physically measured to see just what it's AMO draw length really is.

    The specific draw lengths also depend on what ATA bow you are referring to, so you might want to look in the Martin catalog for the specific bow/cam combination.

    What I did not see in the catalog was the break between the large and small cams. I figured it was right down the middle but thought I better ask.
