Default Bow String help?

How would I find out what type of string I would need for a Parker Ultra Lite 31?

I don't know what my draw length is, does anyone know how I could find out?

Here are some of my bows specs.

My draw weight is #70.

Brace Height is 7";
Axle to axle is 31";
Weight is 2.9 lbs;
let-off is 80%;
IBO speed is 310 FPS;

Try calling Parker for this info. I called Bowtech for string and cable length on my Black Ice and they were able to give methe measurments over the phone in about 30 seconds.

Before I try calling them, will I need to know my bows draw length?

Could you please tell mehow to find my bows draw length?

I have no idea how to find it. [X(]

I'm no expert on this maybe someone else can help out here but I don't think the draw length matters. When They adjust the draw length don't they just swap out the modules and the string remains the same?

I found this on the Parker website, maybe with some help from a friend you can use it to determine your bows drawlength. Good luck...

How is draw length measured?
Draw length is measured when the bow is at full draw and being held in the "valley" or the highest let-off point on the cam. The measurement is taken from the point where the nock is attached to the string to a point 1-3/4" in front of the pivot point of the grip.

In other words, from the nocking point on the string to roughly the front edge of the bow. Draw length is NOT measured to the arrow rest mounting hole as many people think.

It should be printed on a label on the bottom limb along with the string and cable length. If the label is missing then follow fjp's advice above then call Parker for the lengths but be sure to find out specifically what length they're giving you, I seem to remember there being something weird about how Parker measures strings.

Where is the piviot point of the grip?
