    Default Single Cam or Dual cam, which do you guys prefer?

    I've shot both, and I have to say that the dual cam I had (PSE The BEAST) was more of pain to tune, even though when it was tuned correctly it shot very well. Right now I'd have to say that I prefer single cam, but I'll know better when I've used a newer dual cam( I'd like to get the Silencer or the Firecat 400).

    I like the single cam for the ease of tuning. I would buy a dual cam for target. Both should be another choice.

    lol i picked dual... yeah harder to tune, but worth the performance. if i shot for hunting only or ocasionally, id stick with the single, due to the easy factor.

    Martins C.A.T and NITRO cams and the Rytera Hybrix are not true dual cams.

    Single.I have been on the fence about my next bow being a dual or single.
    For the hunting I do max 25yd,I just don't know ,the singles are a little easier to tune.Only time well tell I guess.

    Default Single Cam or Dual cam, which do you guys prefer?

    I could live quite happy (and do) with single cam. I still use one for hunting and once so often get out my Old War Horse with single cam. I've told of it in another reply, but again, my Ole War Horse has placed and won more than all my dual cams bows put together.
    I've probably owned every single cam UltraTec Hoyt made from 1999 thru 2002. I owned UltraTecs with Command Cams and Cam & 1/2 up thru 2006. This last year I picked up a Martin Shadowcat and haven't looked back, but the Catcams are pretty aggressive and have a fair hump/bump at the end of the draw cycle. The Shadowcat is another of the most accurate bows I've ever owned.

    since the coming of the alien x my prefrance is dual cams,they are a little of a pain to tune but when you do get them tuned they are fast, acurate, and smooth and imo the best looking bows out there. i got the new onza 3 today, it is one sharp bow. i got it all set up but it got dark before i could shoot it.i will check that out in the morning.

    My preference is with true dual cams as the Nitrous Cam for e.g..
    But as nearly all manufacturers do not offer true dual cams i will stick to hybrid cams...

    As a finger shooter I prefer dual cam, when I shoot release I like single.

    I find that due to my style of shooting, dual cams really suit me well and I get the best accuracy from them, I find single cam bows just a little too 'soft' and I'm always a little inconsistent.

    My release style is completely different and so I can live with the soft feel of the single cam and get some great accuracy.
