BowTech Introduces Three Key Bow Design Technologies on the New 2010 BowTech Destroyer Bow
Eugene, OR –-(AmmoLand.com)- For their 10th model year anniversary, BowTech set out to design the most advanced bow ever produced.
The result of this focus was the development of three key technologies, all featured on the new BowTech Destroyer.
The OverDrive Binary™ synchronized dual cam system is a remarkable advancement over the original Binary™ system. Both designs offer symmetrical cams that are ‘slaved’ to one another to produce perfect synchronization and eliminate nock travel. The original Binary™ system acheived synchronization by using a cable let-out groove mounted on each cam. The OverDrive™ Binary replaces the let-out groove with a pair of eccentric posts mounted on both ends of the cam axle.
This cam ‘drive train’ turns when the cam turns. The eccentric posts let cable out as the bow is drawn, providing the same, proven synchronization that Binary™ cams are known for, while allowing the attachment of a split buss cable to either end of the cam axle to add stability and balance. The split buss system is 100% tunable. Cam lean and oscillation after the shot are drastically reduced, allowing perfect arrow flight with virtually any setup. The OverDrive Binary™ doesn’t stop there. The ultra light weight and exceptional balance of the cam helps achieve a near silent, shock free shooting experience.
HardCore Limbs™ is a BowTech innovation that sets a new standard for quality in the archery industry. Layers of high-strength fiberglass are laminated to a stiff, light carbon core. On conventional limbs, most of the bow’s energy is stored near the outside of the limb, while the core of the limb stores minimal energy and serves as little more than a spacer between limb faces. HardCore Limbs put the core to work, storing energy not only near the surfaces, but inside the limb. By sharing the workload, stress is reduced, producing a limb with exceptional durability. As an added bonus, the carbon core is very lightweight, improving the response of the limb, thereby reducing shock, vibration and noise and helping to drive efficiency into new territory. This contributes directly to the shootable speed and performance of the bow.
The new FLX-Guard™ cable containment system for 2010 addresses the tuning issues associated with the extreme cable tension and inflexible cable guards found on today’s bows.
Core to this new technology is its flexibility. As the bow is drawn, the FLX-Guard responds by flexing inward, absorbing much of the cable guard torque that would have been transferred to the riser. The result is substantial reduction in lateral nock travel, yielding a real advancement in tune-ability and forgiveness. Along with the two Destroyer models, the FLX-Guard will also be featured on the AdmiralFLX and SentinelFLX.
