Hi everyone. :) I just got a used '08 Bengal in great shape for a great price from a relative. I was told it has a 30" draw. That would coincide with the F7 module. What I am wondering, though, is when reading the book it says the #2 peg reduces the length by a half inch. The cable on my bow is on the #2 peg. Does this mean that the draw length is actually 29.5"? If so, that would actually be better for me. If I got an F6 module would that then make it 28.5"? As it stands it actually doesn't feel too long for me, even though the "divide by 2.5" guideline says my draw length is 28".

An F6 should make it 28.5 on the #2 peg. Might give that a try, and see how it feels. I know I used to try to shoot too long of a draw. Shortened it up by about an inch, and now I'm much more accurate..

I have a 2008 Bengal with the MPro cam.This model does no have an F6 module.The F5 module is 29".In 2008 the MOAB was the bow with an F6 module and MPro cam.

Look, the only way to know what the draw length really is is to physically measure it. No matter what module the charts call for it can vary depending on how much the string and cables are twisted and whether they are twisted to spec. It has been my experience that most bows draw as much as an inch longer than what they should, so measure it and know for sure.

Also, although you have been measured for what should be a correct draw length don't let that sway you from playing around with it to see what works best. The best way to tell what draw length fits you is to see how solid a bow holds and aims, but if anything err on the short side. Never go longer.

Thanks for the replies, everyone. I found the module pack in the Martin store and will give those a try.

Thanks for the tip. :) I hadn't really thought about eBay, as I've never used it. I've never really been comfortable with it. I might have to make an exception, though. I didn't think the price was too bad for the module pack in the Martin store. When I added them to the cart it said shipping was $9. That kind of surprised me. I'm kind of leaning towards an F5 since the cable is on the 2 peg.

If you do go the ebay route, be carfull of the shipping. A lot of ebay sellers sell at what seems a really low price till you add shipping, sometimes worse than the $9 Martin store shipping.

I have noticed that before with eBay. I do like to browse eBay every now and then. I always try to buy from sites that have free shipping. I honestly don't remember what the last thing I bought was that had a shipping charge. :o

The shipping issue is the amnin reason I don't even look at EBay any more. Till ya tak on the shipping youy could have gotten them at retail in most cases. When I want something I just look on Amazon.

Ebay now charges the seller a percentage of the shipping , so we are seeing more items with free shipping, they just have a bit higher starting bid. Just picked up a nice powder measure and stand from a seller who mis labeled it, have been watching same and each has been selling for what I paid for both. Listed as Buy it now for $35, free shipping, should be here today!
