    A good friend of mine Dean ended up getting a new Darton AS300. It ended up with custom ProString , GKF rest and Windstalker cable guard. Its getting a solid 297 FPS at 60# 27" draw 300 grain arrow. He mentioned how much he loved the way it held at full draw {very solid}. This is a picture of my wife holding the bow {she is way better looking than Dean}.

    Sweet looking bow.
    That handle looks great. How narrow is that ? It kind of looks like the 2007 Diamond/Bowtech handles, which I really like a lot. Really torque free.

    Yeah I'm certain your wife is much prettier than Dean, whoever he is... Don't bother posting his pic...
    :laugh:

    Does she shoot too ? If not we need more support for the sport so convince her to have at it.

  4. I thought Darton had yoke cables on their Two and a Half Cam...

    The bow is very torque free / resistant . My wife does shoot and has take two whitetails with her bow and only shot two arrows! She started shooting again last year when I bought her a new Darton Tempest 40-50# which I have set at 35# now. She is not unlike most women dislike for bugs, wind, too hot, too cold, muddy, .. ect. But I do enjoy when all my family shoots together.

    As far as the yolk take up question its only on the Pro series from Darton . The assault series doesn't have it. The Assault series does have a adjustable limb button stop on the upper cam. Here is a close up pic of the upper cam on this AS300.
     

  6. So this cam system is more like BowTech's Binary cams? I didn't know that had two of this type?

    yes darton changed there cams this year to a binary design !! Since they are the inovator of that design. they are a better design also. You dont get the cam lean that Bowtechs were getting in there earlier productions. But, they've cured that issue too!!

    Well its very close in design. I did not take a picture of it but the cable side I believe is different than the Binary system you see on Bow Techs. The Darton system has a small round wheel the the opposite cam unwinds during the draw cycle. I will try to get a pic to be more clear on the description.
     

  9. This is the third year BowTech produced the Binary cam system and Darton's first...

    That looks a lot like how the Bowtech cables are set up.

    I have a 2006 Allegaince and I would really like to have the 2007 riser/handle on that thing. If I only waited another year...

    Duhhhhh...

    The cams share the same fundamental configurations. The limb are notably different.

    Darton limb is wider on the cable side.
