    Question Shadowcat Specs

    I have a 2010 Shadowcat retrofitted with Nitro Hybrid Duo Cams.
    I think it came out with CAT 1.5 cams.
    The bow shoots well but I have some doubt with the correct ATA, string
    and cable lengths with this setup.
    Has anyone done this mod and have info?
    Much obliged. DP

    The ATA and brace height should be the same as the stock setting, I believe if you were to place the new cam and the old cam on top of each other they would match.

    Yeah, there was no discernible difference between them other than the peg location for the cable. I believe it was moved from the outer edge more toward the center. And, of course, the name change. Cat to Nitro.

    Compare the 2010 (41 1/2") to the 2011 (41 1/4"). I had both. Same strings for both. I don't know, perhaps one of the reasons my 2011 would not come up to maxed listed draw weight and this is what to look for. If your bow lists 60 pounds then the bow should draw 60 pounds. If not, then possibly 57 to 58 pounds and the new cams being the difference. Regardless, the 2010 and 2011 Shadowcats were exceptionally accurate.

    Of note; My 2010 wouldn't come to specs with the new 2011 Power Tough limbs and was replaced with a Scepter V.

    Do not trust the spec sheet to much. They got changed quite often after some limb failures. Actually the Tech service could not provide me with a ATA and harness length, just an approximate range...

    If it were me, I'd just play with the lengths, twist and untwist the threads untill it shot the best for me. And then take the measurements and have a set built to those specs.
