    If a Hoyt maxes out at 29" and a guy needs a 30 or 31" inch draw length can the Cams be changed to achieve this and if they are does it require new string and cables?....:noidea:

    It really depends on the cam he has... if he has C2 and Z3 (not sure about Z3s -- If i am wrong someone please correct me) You, will need to order a new cam for the proper draw length.

    For the classic Cam & 1/2 , Versa Cam and Cam & 1/2 plus, they should be adjustable.

    the ones that are on the bow now adjust in 1/2 inch increments. The only problem is it bottoms out at 29... So are ya saying it could be done with a new set of cams? What about the string and cable lengths?...:noidea:

    Yea -- if it bottoms out at 29", than they will need to get new cams and new strings.

    They usally start at 25.5-29 and 27.5 -31 ( or somehting like that) -- its been a long time since I messed with those cams.

    Changing the base cam may also change the DW of the limbs. You might want to call Hoyt and check on that if nobody here can confirm.
