I plan on using the STS Double on my Pro3000. I used it on my Tundra and my Tempest. With the lower brace the STS should work out to be a great add on.

I don't think the 2.5 cam has anything to do with the yolk on the bow. From what I have read, it is basically a Binary cam. Just called a different name.

Interesting how the cams seem to be tied together like the Bowtec's but with a split cable tying the cams together on both sides of each cam. That should help with cam lean. Nice design.

The Y cable does attach to both sides of the cam and the string is in between. It is going {should?} to have the least lean for a cable bar bow.

Well I shot the Pro2000,3000,4000 and the AS300. The cams that are on the Pro series are fantastic marvel that I am truly impressed with. You might think the Pro3000 with a listed 6 1/4 brace would hit your wrist easily. Wrong ! I can only think that the limb design must keep the string from moving forward as far. It is very interesting to get a first hand look at the split Y cable take up. It actual works with the cam to increase the overall efficients. The draw cycle of the Pro3000 is like a stiff CPS and had has a hard wall. The AS300 is going to be a prime choice of serious bow hunters. When I was shooting it I so could feel the benefit from its short ATA and quiet shot. I was told the Pro2000 and Pro3000 have a different cam from the Pro4000 and Pro5000. The Pro4000 would be my choice if you wanted to shoot spots and ASA 3D. I can still and do drill the X with my Tundra and the Pro4000 is the modern advancement of that kind of bow. I wanted one of the Pro3000 really bad and none the less {tears} I was added to the list of the other awaiting its newest production run. As soon as I get it I will post pics Trust me!

The pro 3000 is the only new bow on darton's web sight, and it is the only one of the 2007 lineup that my dealer doesn't have.

Time to switch I guess... you've already used all the luck up that your current Darton has and now its time to switch to something new

You can find two new bows on the Darton site for a while now

http://dartonarchery.com/Pro3000.htm

http://dartonarchery.com/AS300.htm

If I was to choose two it would be these two.

Here it is! Very excited about shooting some distance ASAP. Sword 3rd Plane with Sword 4X lens and .010 pins. GKF Infinity with Premo Blade. I have some custom string on order from ProString as well. So far I have not tried a target stabilizer just using my hunting stabilizer.

This bow is hold on target better than any other I have ever shot. I might play around and get some Halo serving for the cables and add the Windstalker! That should bump it up to 330!

It draw smother than the cams on the Pro 2000/3000. Matter of fact its a different cam. Quiet yes and little movement. I have the Tundra and really have done well with it over the last three years and I think the Pro4000 would be a great replacement for it.

I shot my first out door 3D with this bow and its great. I am going to have to make a change to my pins. I currently shoot 20,30 and 40 yard pin settings. The 20 is so close to the 30 it made it difficult to gap shoot targets under 30 yards. So this mean i am going to try to shoot it with out a 20 yards pin just leaving me with two pins.. 30 and 40 that it! I will {should} have a better picture of the target and with 332 FPS I can be off by 4 yards on most targets and still be in the 10 ring.

I wouldnt worry about brace height!! Its over rated. Its all in the riser design that eliminates all the arm slap that you used to get w/ the older short brace bows. Like the X-force, arm slapping is non-existant. Dartons design works pretty much the same way!!

I have really put a lot of hard hits on my Gold Tip Pro 22'S and pin nocks have been tough as nails. I have had several hard hits and they usually break the nock its self. Once in a while I have destroyed the metal pin. I did not think robin hood was realistic possible. Any ways it was a 30 yard shot and I was checking my Sword 3rd plane sights when it happened.
