Default RE: bow pulleys

First, welcome to the forums here!

Second, I would suggest that you don't attempt this, mainly because it sounds as if you're not very familiar with archery equipment yet. However, to answer your question...

You can change the cams on many bows, but it will all depend on the manufacturer and model line - I'd try the manufacturer's websiteand see if it is an option for your specific bow - if nothing else, call them directly to find out - tech support is your friend

I agreee 110% with Austin on this one. Do not attempt to do this on your own.

I'll third the suggestion to go through the manufacturer. You really shold be pretty well versed with archery equipment to accomplish what you want.

Depending on what cams you are now shooting and what cams you want to use you may even reduce the draw weight of the bow. This may call for a change in limbs. It just all depends on the bow and just what you are trying to do.

Also, it is very often not cost effective to do this. Camsd themselves may cost $100 or more and may call for new string/cable; another $50 to $100. Then if you need new limbs you can tack on another $150 or more. As you can see, the cost effectiveness is not there. Often times just better to sell your present bow and buy a new one.

Best bet would be to take it to a competent archery shop and have them look at it. Tell them what your wanting to do and they will tell you what can be done.

You could tell us what kind of bow you have and we could tell you what can be done BUT your still gonna have to go to a shop to have the work done.

like they said above a cam swap can be VERY pricey!!!!

Let us know what you have and we can go from there.
