Been reading the advertising stuff they have going about it, well out of my price range, these bows would be well over $2k in Australia. But just wondering what peoples thoughts on them are?

I have to shoot it to see but how could there be a "back wall" with no cam?

It's an interesting concept, but I think it's a little misleading. Even though the wheels don't look like standard cams, I think it still has a cam built onto the side of the wheel where the string/cable goes. They advertise different let-off percentages, and I don't believe it could have any let-off if the string truly tracked around a plain round wheel with no camming motion.

I would like to shoot it, it's already been brought up about the let off, without true cams.

Haven't seen one in person but looks like a mixture of old school compounds and more recent ones. 4

Old school round "wheels" with axial not in the center of the wheel providing the cam action.

New school long riser, short parallel limbs, back wall providing cable stops on the wheels.

Probably a smooth shooting bow but would have to try it to see.

They are trying to compete with the "shootability" of the Elite bows. I wonder if they are jumpy like the cams they have on their other bows.

I went and looked at one today but did not shoot because it was a rh version and I'm a lefty. I think they're trying to pass off old tech as new. Yes, the cams are round and there are indeed 2 cams(who came up with no cam) but theres some sort of buss cable wheel(whatever you wanna call it) on the sides of the cams. This wheel is not centered on the axles like the cams. This reminds me of the small cams on some older bows. Yeah they're round but they weren't centered, when they broke over on the draw you could see what I was talking about on the older style bows.

Well to start with I think it is incredibly ugly particularly the ones with the longer brace height. I'm making a guess here but with nothing but the pictures it looks like the cable track is what is offset to provide the let off not the cam itself. I don;t shoot spots anymore so even if it is the "most accurate bow in the world" it's not going to change my life or my wallet. It is good to see technology continue to move forward.

I'm not fond of the looks and the price range of $1099 to $1799 makes them look even more disappointing to me.

The draw is very nice. The back wall is solid. Absolutely no hand shock or vibration on the shot. The bow shoots very well. But the speed is just not there. No where near what they rate them. I shot a 370 grain arrow at 60.25 lbs and it shot 246 fps. Same arrow out of an elite synergy with the exact same draw length and at 60lbs shot 284 fps. IBO ratings on both bows are roughly the same.

I was very close to buying the No Cam HTR but just can't get over the speed difference.
