    Default Any real Bow pros here. I have a Bowtech Question

    I bought a 04 Bowtech Pro40 wheelie (single cam) 50 to 60 pound limbs. I want to change to twin cams. I know I will have to get cams and strings. But do I have to change the limbs? Will the poundage go up or down?

    More than likely the limb deflection will change. Most bow companies do not give out limb deflection charts so the only way to know for sure is to call bowtech or just go ahead and try it.

    Already have one

    Ok this is what I was thinking.
    Single cam Vs Dual cam. which system bends the limbs more at full draw. With both you are pulling the string away from the bow the same DL. To me it looks like a dual cam would bend more becuse the single has a wheel on one end.

    I thought the wheelie was a dual cam, just using round wheels instead of the black knight cams?

    My guess is that Bowtech would design both dual and single cams to use the same deflection so they wouldn't have to inventory two sets of limbs for each draw weight.

    for a while BOWTECH had to inventory 5-6 sets of limbs for every bow.....

    Correct!!! You will have to get Pro-40 Dually limbs. The deflection is different. You can stand the chance of an explosion on the limbs.( And I'm not going to crack on there limb issues either!) So forget it. I shot a pro-40 dually years ago. Excellent shooter. I sold it cause I was having timing issues with it. would never stay in time. No matter what strings I put on it. But when it was timed properly. There were few bows that could touch it!! Good luck!!

    To go out of time the Cables/strings had to stretch I shot a Pat Dually for a few years and never had a timing problem using custom 452X strings and cables. It was definitely a shooter

    I think when you get done with the conversion, you could have bought a new Allegiance.
