When looking at the Easton arrow selection chart is the cam & 1/2 soft medium or hard cam?

Also I have a 27.5" draw length, would it be better to look at the 28" section or the 27"?

The C.5 is classed as Hard.
Always go up to the longest calculation. In your case 28" :o
If in doubt go the stiffer shaft.

Hey Ozzy

We have the same bow and I thought cam 1/2 was a Medium Cam and the spirals were Hard?

Yes Flame, I have been informed that to treat the C.5 as a hard cam . I questioned it too.
I suspect they are "in between", but play safe.
I must say the draw stroke on the Hoyt C.5 feels more severe than some other cams I have tried. Brilliant though, eh?
Treat some of the softer style round wheels with a cam effect on the cable side as a medium.

It is a fantastic Bow

Hope it will do some talking at the Masters else the Queen will crucify me at the AF dinner :D

I was going to say fade blue is too popular (you should get something different) but I think too common is a better way of putting it! Why can't Hoyt bring out some more 'normal' colours?

I am inclined to agree Andy :-?

Yeah Merlin have some great colours! Was going to get the Max3000 but tried the UltraTec & it defiantley was better! I keep saying this, but i really don't know why Hoyt got rid of the platinum & copper colours! THEY LOOKED HOT! Now i've just got my UltraTec i bet they reintroduce the colours I like for 2004! :x

Yes Andy, I too love my ProTec, & the UltraTec is superb also. :wink:
I previously had a Merlin Max 2000 & although a good bow to shoot, it pales by comparison :o :wink:
They would look good in Platinum.
Finish of the limbs etc. too is miles in front :D
