    To all you mathews experts out there I’m wondering if the cams for my monster chill are tough enough to take the occasional knock around. An example would be pulling it up a tree and it hitting the tree. Or when it’s on my pack and I’m heading into the woods it gets the ‘once-in-awhile’ knock  against bushes or small trees. Listen, I’m new at this sport and paid a lot of money and I don’t how much I need to baby my bow. Thanks!

    How much did you pay for it?  Now treat it accordingly…

    They will take some beating around on the tree limbs, but keep it away from the rocks and steel…

    The end is near....

    Statedriller, Thanks. Agreed, I do baby it like the money I spent on it. With that, I would like to trek around in the woods and not carry extra weight to ‘over’ protect it moreso than I am currently doing to protect the bow as a whole. I wonder if they make cam guards…

    Primos makes an excellent carry strap that covers the cam and string and it protects fairly well.

    Thanks Bow Drawn! I’ll definitely check that out. So far I found HeDog but not exactly what I had in mind.

    I really like the Primos sling for just this reason.

    Belted the **** out of my Chill chasing Wapiti in Fiordland NZ this past April. We were in the thickest, steepest, ugliest scrub imaginable with bows strapped to our packs. I fell on the Chill, dropped it and gave it a good bashing on that 10 day hike in backpack hunt and the bow came out perfect.SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

    What a relief to read your story. Not that I will put my chill through the same scenario but it’s nice to have confidence that those cams are durable for the occasional light knock around. Especially when I get my primos bow sling…
