About Whisper Creek
Eccentric System: From the Baffler Cam to the Hyper Force Accel Cam, WCA introduced a unique single cam system that incorporates many designed technologies, including the use of their BowDamp string groove material to eliminate all metal contact with the strings and BowSuspension system to transfer vibration into low grade heat. Other various technologies include Bow, Pocket, In-Line String, Axle, and Pulley Suspension systems, BowStrut, and BowActuator dampening devices. All of these incorporated are guaranteed to diminish noise output by 8-13 dBA.
Limbs: WCA's solid limb composite design is constant, with dampening BowDamp material incorporated in the pockets. In 2007, they upgraded all limbs to solve any customer issues, a noticeable improvement in performance. All of their bows utilize a parallel limb design.
Riser: Their risers are set apart from the rest, in both cosmetics and apparent material. Created out of 6061-T6 aerospace aluminum, the riser material is tough and very tolerant to extreme temperatures. Although they are not very re-flexed risers, the BowDamp material creates a pivot point that quenches vibration throughout the riser.
Popularity and Customer FeedbackIn their years of business, they earned their reputation as a fantastic manufacturer, with a strong customer service base. Their unfortunate shutdown was forced in 2009 due to the economy at the time and industry consolidation.
