Default RE: string loops


I suggest you not change your anchor point.

As for changing draw length on bow equal to the length of loop you use; some say yes, some say no, that they have not noticed any difference. Therefore, I guess whether you need to change your draw-length setting on your bow depends on who you ask or what you read, and may just be an individual preference.

I cannot tell you what I have personally experienced, because regardless of the string loop I have always set my draw-lengths 1" less than my actual DL, and I shorten the threaded rod on my releases so that I do not feel that the bowstring and loop is floating around in front of my anchor. Even that (changing release length) may be just a comfort thing for me.

However, I did have to reset my nock height positions on my bows because of being behind the nock rather than beneath.

I am against changing the draw lenght.

For the reason that if you shorten up your draw then you are going to take the string away from the tip of your nose and corner of your mouth 2 of your most solid anchor points.

I will advise you to do is shorten your release so you can keep the same release hand anchor point.

Just my .02's worth
