A more fail safe version is the bent rods that bearfoot Archry is selling on AT. I got one and really like it. No moving parts, all one piece, and a lot less expensive then a tilt tamer. Plus it works with my tightspot quiver which a tilt tamer won't with out a bunch of adapters
This product will change the industry, mark my words. I am actually excited about it. I just spoke to Bear Foot on the phone and the Hoyts won't be available for another month.
Could be useful on some bows with torque & left tear (through paper) issues. However, most risers that torque badly feature roller guards. Changing a roller guard out for one of these will seriously mess up your force draw curve so your bow will not store as much energy. Some bows are designed with the side load (torque) in mind so removing that load will actually cause the riser to flex improperly out of plane which could actually make tuning and accuracy more of an issue. I used to heat up and shape stainless cable guard bars so they would achieve the exact same thing - or grind carbon bars to allow them to flex. Several manufacturers are doing this today on their cable systems to achieve a similar effect. I don't ever recall missing a shot because of cable guard torque in my bow so I don't see a big impact or market for it. There are some instances where it would be useful for tuning such as a left tear through paper. Reducing bow torque will help in that regard. Tim Gillingham used to deal with that on many of his setups so I can see why he would consider it useful.
I have been thinking about this lately and you are the perfect guy to answer my question!
Ok here you go, my question is slide vs roller with the 2010 vs 2011 matrix as an example. I have owned both, and they were within 2 fps of each other so what is the advantage of a roller? Just less serving wear?
Also take the alpha max vs the maxxis ,or crx and I prefer the draw cycle of the am compared to the other 2 but their ibo speeds were all close. Plus they tune easier IMO.
So back to my original question how is there no speed loss with the slide on the 2010 matrix? Is it just the long ata (compared to most bows today) that makes the rollers less effective at loading the limbs during the draw? Sorry, I think about little things like this I might have a problem I'm not sure lol.
