Default Can you change the wheel/cam?

I am just wondering if it is possible for you to change the wheels or cams on a bow? If a bow has outgrown me, is it possible for a new cam or wheel? or would I have to buy a completely new bow? Thanks

Kreg,

Maybe Yes and then NO!!!!! It depends on the bow manufacturers options for that bow. I have built a couple of bows out of different manufacturers parts. The bows shot OK, but not as well as a designed bow. Once you enter the realm of trying to upgrade old bows, in the long run its cheaper to buy a new bow. I know it seems like a waste, but thats the way it generally works out.

changing cams can also make a difference in poundage and usually doesnt perform the same. Like FLHunter said, your really better off buying another bow.
