Default Being slightly out of spec...

I took the time out today to measure and make notes on my bow, rest, and sight settings. I found my ata and brace are both 1/8" off. I have a hunt coming up in 2 1/2 weeks. Question is do I up twist everything back to spec now or wait until after the hunt to start screwing around?

Sometimes a bow should be out of spec slightly due to where the bow's poundage and draw length is set.

Specs are usually given at a specific draw and poundage setting.

IMO,if all is well,shoot it and forget about it.

Specs are just a guide line, not an absolute

I agree with Mean V and Dan as well ,spec's are just a reference point ,no 2 bow's will be exactly as the other .Don't sweat it if it's shooting fine and go hunting .
