    LX, MQ1, and Legacy. Looking for a measurement. At brace, if you extended the string straight out past the cam, the distance from this line square down to the center of the cam's axle. I'm trying to get an idea of how much the lobe of the cams sticks out at brace. If you have one of these could you throw a tape or ruler on it please. Thanks.

    If I am hearing what you are sayin, and doing it right, I put a magazine on my string and through the center of my cam, and the measurement was 2 1/8". Thats on a legacy. Hope this was it.

    If you go to the Mathews forums and PM Bob Jenkins with this question, he can probably tell you everything you need to know.

    back up for this one.....so Papito is pestering me about the Icon....and he is also pesteringme about making it faster.....so here is my question.....

    if we left the large Idler from the Icon on......and swictched to say a Prestige cam.....

    #1....he isa 27.5 draw....would we order a 27.5 draw Prestige cam.....

    #2....would it make it noticible faster???

    #3....would it be better just to order a prestige cam and put a smaller idler whell on the bow....

    #4....should we also look to getting heavier limbs for it or just leave the 40-50lbs limbs on it...the bow maxes at 55lbs....would the smaller cam get us to 60-65 lbs???

    #5....has anybody here done anything like this???

    I pretty sure they would advise to use the cam that is made for the bow. Otherwise, any warrantee would be void. Not going to go there with this.
