Contemporary hunting and target bows appear quite different from traditional bows as continual advancements are made in archery technology to improve accuracy and ease of use. Founded in 1931, Hoyt designs and produces a variety of archery products, including recurve and compound bows and other archery-related accessories. The company produces bows for both target archery and hunting hobbyists and professionals.
Produced in 2002 and 2003, the Hoyt CyberTec compound bow with 14-inch XT2000 limbs, also known as the CyberTecXT2000, has a draw weight range of 40 to 80 pounds and a mass weight of 3 pounds, 15 ounces. It measures 35 1/2-inches from axle-to-axle, including the XT2000 limbs, and has a 6 5/8-inch brace height. The bow’s draw length ranges from 23 to 31 inches, with a 2 1/2-inch limb bolt length and a cable guard bar measuring 7 1/2 inches in length.
Hoyt’s CyberTec bow features a modern system of cables and pulleys used to bend the bow. The pulleys, or cams, attached at the ends of each limb of the bow, turn when pulling back and releasing the bowstring. According Hoyt, the bow features an arrow speed of 315 feet per second (fps), specified by the International Bowhunting Organization (IBO). The IBO standard measures the speed of an arrow weighing 5 grains per pound of draw weight using a bow set at a 30-inch draw length and a 70-pound draw weight.
The Hoyt CyberTec bow features a low wrist grip, woodside plates and a 75-percent let-off, with an optional 65-percent let-off. Hoyt’s CyberTec bow comes in Film Dipped Realtree Hardwoods camouflage finish in HD Green. The CyberTec bow has slightly thinner grips and a lighter overall mass weight compared to previous models. Hoyt also made modifications to the cable slide by changing the material to Teflon and adding a radius against the cable to decrease deterioration. The 2003 CyberTec also features the cam-and-a-half TM pulley system with sealed, maintenance-free ball bearings and the option for a Spiral Cam.
Improved Cam System
According to Hoyt, the CyberTec’s Cam and 1/2 system improves on previous models consisting of one- and two-cam systems; having the advantages of both systems, without any of the drawbacks. It addresses and improves on issues of speed and timing in the previous systems, while also increasing overall shooting consistency and accuracy. The Cam and 1/2 system features a control cable linking the top and bottom pulleys together to fire both cams at the same time. Hoyt claims the Cam and 1/2 system is engineered to make it easier to draw, aim and shoot in high-adrenaline situations.
