The Bear Divergent is outfitted with hybrid cams that are high performing. The cams are incorporated with exceptional draw dial modules, which allow you to effectively adjust the draw length without necessarily using a bow press.
Apart from cable stops, the hybrid cam system promotes a let-off of 75%. This together with the smooth draw cycle, store plenty of energy to propel arrows to your target.
The distinct benefit of the hybrid cam system is the level knock travel and the syncing of the two cams without the problems of timing associated with other cam systems.
