Re: Hoyt FastFlite Compound Bow
What is your draw length and is the bow's range in that area?
What is the let off of the cam? I suspect 50%.
That is an older bow and I suspect has a teardrop string assembly. I have an old Browning Coyote that has the same set up and I used it for over ten years and it worked great. Make sure the cables are sound.
Throughly check the limbs around where the cam attaches to be sure there are no cracks in the wood coated fibergalss. If there any cracks on the limbs or cams at all it's worthless. Make sure you look really close under good light.
As I said earlier that is an older bow and wouldn't pay more than $75-100. $100 if it's primo.
To change the string: If it's teardrop you draw back the bow slightly (I used to put my foot and use one hand) and attach the new string to the other side of the teardrop and ease off, grasp the new string and draw it back a ways and take off the old string. The strings are made of dacron and will stretch after some shooting. You will need to put on a nock, silencers, etc.
If it's in decent shape and not outrageous it will serve you well.
