Default Which cams should I use?

I shoot the hoyt vipertech and am considering changing my 75% letoff to the 65% cams, I have heard that holding more weight will increase my accuracy. If that is the case, when you pull up against the wall, why not just pull harder against your bow arm?

Default Good question Tim

I would like to know also. I have shot a bow with 50% and one with 65%. The one with 65% I shoot alot better so that is why I ordered my XT with 80%. I thought maybe I would give it a try if I do not like it I can have it changed to 65% and yes I know I will lose 1/2" on my DL. So I guess this is something more of personal preference also, just like different bows. I hope someone can help you out here with this question. Later dude.

Why would you lose a 1/2 going from a 65% to a 80% let off ? I shoot 28 inch draw with both of them..

Default What I was told

I was told that if you change the cam position from 80%to65% you lose 1/2" in DL.

The new Swithcbacks are not adjustable...they come in the draw length you order....The Outbacks have the adjustable let-off on there cam..

Default So I was mislead!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris or anybody who knows for sure can you verify this for me??? I was told that if I ordered my XT at 29"DL and 80% letoff then decided I did not like the letoff I could just adj my cam and get 65% letoff but this would change my DL to 28.5. Is this correct or am I stuck with 80% letoff unless I order another cam???? Thanks guys
