    I was on another forum recently and someone was talking about their new HCA bow. He posted a pic. I noticed right away, the bow looks just like an elite and has binary cams on it.

    What's up with that?

    WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO STIR UP THE POT???? The new HCA bows came out a few months ago. The limbs are also Barnsdale Limbs, and they call them trinary cams, and they use a roller guard like Mathews. So if you ask me it looks like a Mathews-Elite-Bowtech hybrid.... They used tech from all three. I saw a guy shooting the Iron Mace and it sounded like a cannon going off and he looked like his shoulder was going to rip off during the draw cycle...He was shooting those xtra lightwieght arrows they sell for their bows and you could tell that it was BLAZIN very large grip as well.:bored:

    Not really trying to stir the pot but thought maybe Elite sold out to HCA.

    Its getting hard to tell some brand of bows apart from the others.

    BTW, that is a High Country roller guard. Mathews pays High Country for it.

    Elite can't sell out... they don't own anything! They are leasing or buying every part of their bow from other companies. I think the only thing they made on their own may be the riser which looks just like every other riser out there.

    Their cams are straight form Bowtech / Darton

    Their "string stoppers" are from Mathews

    Their Limbs are from Barnsdale

    Their strings and cables aren't even made in house

    Basically elite took stuff from everyone and joined it together, and then got bought (no merger) by a manufacturing company.

    So HCA may be following suit, but they aren't doing anything new or original from the looks of it

    Back in April I spoke with a reliable source who I will not name since he didn't go public with it. He told me that HCA and Elite had worked in collaboration on the cam. Pooling their resources.

    I have no dog in the race, I have shot/owned all three.

    Disclaimer:
    Unless someone directly from Elite or HCA either confirms or denies this it's up to each person to take it for what it's worth.

    This is just a hunch, I don't have any evidence to back it up, but I'm gettin it on record, just so I can say I told you so, if it happens. :D

    I bet High Country comes out with a Center Pivot bow similar to the Bowtechs within the next year.
