Roto Cam System

The Prime Black Series of bows receives a brand new cam system for 2020 with the introduction of the Roto Cam. This new 5-track parallel cam system features what Prime says is the easiest method for adjusting draw length with a self contained system of a rotating mod.

There’s no bow press needed for any adjustments with this slick new bow that’s built to be more shooter-friendly than the bows that came before it. The modules can be adjusted in 1/2″ increments and the system allows for 65% and 90% let-off.
