Lightbulb Bow Torque, How much does your bow have?

Hello All,
Attached are two pdf files, Tilt Tamer Torque, How its Measured and Tilt Tamer Bow Torque Chart.
First read “How it’s measured” and then read the results on the “Bow torque chart”
Individual bows of the same model and year will measure differently due to manufacturing tolerances and assembly. All bows I have examined with cables that are offset generate cam tilt and therefore bow torque.

You will note that this year there have been several companies addressing the issue of cam tilt and bow torque. This is a good thing for the archery community as we will all benefit from torque elimination. More accurate easier to shoot bows will be the result.
You can achieve similar results with your existing bow by upgrading it with a Tilt Tamer. Even if you don’t purchase my tilt tamer, you have already benefited from the information I have just shared with you. “Accuracy Matters”
Best Regards
“oldbuck”

Well, that lets me out, all three Martin Nitrous camed bows listed below are shoot-thru systems. Zero Cam lean and or nock travel, other than straight forward. Very to tune. I hunt with the 63#er, all I have to remember is to load arrow from the front, killed that forkie up there with me in the avatar.

That's interesting information. I'd like to see a lot more bows tested and added to the list.

I am curious how a 2011 Darton, 2011 Martins, the Athens Afflixtion, and the BT Specialist. All these bows have an adapted cable guard. Maybe this is a type of solution for the cam lean/ limb twist torque issue.

Hello,
I am happy to see that that bow mfg's are finally addressing the fact of cam tilt. I have been working on this for about 2.5 + years. I talked to many bow maunfactures about cam tilt, before this they mostly made believe it was none issue. I think all the solutions you mentioned will help to various degrees. My Tilt Tamer is a Patent Pending device to provide that solution without buying a new bow. I think the Tilt Tamer is a very cost effective way to get performance without the BIG bucks for a new bow.
Thanks
oldbuck

Absolutely, I think your design is a great retrofit for bows that do not have it. I am just curious how some fo the above would do in your test.
