    Hey I just saw the Matthews NO-Cam and thought it would be great for homebuilders.  I always wondered if it was feasible, since I'd rather file out and tune a small cam and turn a large round wheel than a large cam and a small cam and try to match them.  

    Turns out it works!

    Ya , funny thing ,this is supposed to be new.As an archer I shot round wheels 40 years ago. Same thing only smaller. Remember the saying ,You don't need to reinvent the wheel.Well this proves a new one is born every minute.

    There is even easier way, simply use straight levers.


    Just something quickly put together for testing.
    This works. Flat F/D-curve and noticeable let-off.
    Shoots well too.

    I will not have time to develop this any further in foreseeable future.
    But if anybody else wants to, no patent or copyright claimed. - Feel free to exploit.

    hullu I think you inspired me to build a model a couple years ago (back when you had a different name) with levers, it was really enlightening.

    Anyone have a link to that paleolithic compound bow challenge from a few years back? That was insane use of levers.
