I have a question:
I shoot a Cheetah and the DL is 28", I put a No.4 mod on it.
I had a No5 on it and am wondering which is the better one to install?
I had to increase the DL a little with the 4 on it?
Any advice will be appreciated.
Thanks
Frank.

It depends on what result you want. If you go to the #5 module you will have to shorten the draw, which will reduce the draw weight and speed somewhat. How did you adjust the draw to go longer?

welcom to the forum. Yet another Cheetah owner. Woo hoo! I've got a 28.5" DL. F5 mod on the #1 post. Try the F5 mod on the #2 post. You should be good to go. F4 mod is 27",F5 is 28". The #1 and #2 posts are 1/2" adjustments. If it's close at either setting,you could twist/untwist the string to fine tune.

I tune the bow myself and at the moment the ATA and BH are exactly right.
I put a level on the wheel on the top limb and that is vertical.
Very little cam lean and it is driving tacks, I don't want to twist the string in case I put anything else out.
I got a longer DL on the 4 mod?
Love this bow, I have a Code Red and an Axcel Armortech HD 5 pin on it.

On the 4 mod I felt I was not getting the string down the side of my mouth and moved the draw stop on the cam.
It feels good now.
I will fire some more with it tonight.
