Default 2003-2010 Hoyt Limb Deflection Chart

For many of us who shoot Hoyt, we all know Hoyt is not too keen to give out limb deflection-cam swap to draw weight numbers.

Many of us who own Hoyts do not know our limb deflection without taking off the limbs. Certainly a pain for those who are looking to buy a used Hoyt, and need to know what they need to do in finding the draw length or draw weight if the bows specs are not to their liking.

Hoyt Thompson came up with a model year, limb deflection, cam swap information garnered by hundreds of like minded Hoyt Shooters, who like myself need information on Limb - Cam swaps and what the draw weight numbers will be after the swap.

attached is a pdf document covering most models of Hoyt bows from 2003 to 2010.

GTX cams use a simular def to orig Cam 1/2's . Cam 1/2+, C2 and Spirals require higher def then Orig Cam 1/2 and the new GTX cam

So, for the pure newb at bow tuning, does that mean I can swap from Spirals to a GTX cam and not notice much of a change in draw weight?
Thanks!

GTX cams will increase your draw weight from spirals as much as 10 lbs
