Cam & 1/2™ Performance System

Fused together by a harness system, our cams fire at the exact same time, every time

Return to Technologies

The symmetry between the top and bottom cams of Hoyt’s patented Cam & 1/2 System enables precise tuning and pinpoint accuracy. Fused together by a harness system, our cams work together rather than independently—meaning they fire at the exact same time, every time. That’s why Hoyt shooters never have to worry about cam synchronization. That’s also what makes the Cam & 1/2 System so forgiving and reliable. The scoreboard says it all: since the introduction of this cam technology, more pro circuit tournaments have been won with Cam & 1/2 than all other cam systems combined.†

Every cam model we design is required to survive 1,500 dry fires without failure before ever being considered for the Hoyt product line. Beyond that, the system has to be able to survive 1 million draw cycles. These are NOT industry standards. This is the Hoyt standard. Outsiders tell us our testing standards are overkill, they obviously don’t know the type of durability and dependability serious bowhunters expect and need.
