Re: golden eagle model?
Maybe this will help. Found this about selling these bows. Modules, Cams & Draw Length
Find out the real draw length. Many sellers just list the draw length marked on the limb sticker. Many times the draw length has been changed over the life of the bow. Also, sometimes specs changed on the bows from year to year and may not conform to the advertised range that the seller may be quoting. Ask the seller what the marking is on the bow's Cams and/or Modules.
Some common markings to be found on modules are X*, H*, L*, NH*, S*H, S*L, (1, 2, 3, ...), and (A, B, C, ...) where the "*" represents a single digit number or letter designating the draw length. Here is a link to find a source for Golden Eagle Modules and Cams
Most of the numbers will run in sequence with 1 being the shortest draw length and increasing one inch for each number/letter that it goes up by.
Some of these module series are still in production, but many are not. Some have been replaced by another series of modules that are interchangeable with the ones currently on the bow.
Here are the draw ranges of some of the most common module types:
A, B, C, D (A=shortest D=longest) (Some models also required changes to the Cam, String or Cables)
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (1=shortest 5=longest) (Some models also required changes to the Cam, String or Cables)
Golden Eagle also had many early bows that could only have the draw length adjusted by changing the entire cam system. These bows did not use modules for easy adjustment.
Strings & Cables
Strings and cables are still obtainable for many Golden Eagle Bows. Ask the Seller if there is a string and cable length marked on the limb sticker of the bow. If not the string specs can usually be obtained using the model name and the markings on the cams. Be sure to have the complete model name. Sometimes there were several variations of the same model name that each used different string and cable lengths.
The exception is bows with steel cables. Steel cables are no longer in production and are available only in limited quantities.
