    Question Draw length?

    I have a 26 inch draw module in my bow. How come when I measure my bow at full draw. It comes up 27"? Is it because of the draw stop. The draw stop is at the half point. How much does the draw stop give you for movement an inch, inch and half?

    Sorry Sonny, I forgot to say what system. 2010 BENGAL Acu-trak.
    I am not adding 1 3/4" for AMO either. That's why I am confused

    Doesn't matter really, annoying yes. Is your draw length correct for you?

    Lord! I've got ask, you sure you're measuring correctly? If you are, something is wrong big time....
    That is what I said! But after checking it and measuring it a few times it still comes out 27". I checked the mod too! And I did it on the shooting machine. So I can't figure it out.

    Hutch, you can give me a head slap now but I gotta' ask. May there be an issue w/ string or cable length?? You guys know way more than me on this matter but if bow and cam and module are correct I always try to track back to what else could be wrong.

    OK... commence to head slappin'.

    Hutch, are you sure the module is really for 26". Martin aren't very precise when it comes to the modules - often the site says one, the manual other. And not to mention about these odd blank modules
    2008 Martin MOAB - 45-60#, set at about 51-53# / 55#" Perfect Line" compound/ 55# Mongol horsebow/ 45# "Perfect Line" takedown recurve/ 45# Bearpaw Grizzly hunter recurve/ 55# Samick Longbow Cheetah ... and several homemade bows

    Long shot here, but maybe the bow shipped with wrong limbs? Longer limbs? Although if the limbs were wrong length, your ATA and BH would be way off as well (thinking out loud)... and even if you cranked the cable down to make the ATA spec, the BH would be way long and the draw weight would be high. I'm assuming everything but the dl is to spec then? Maybe the Mod was mis-labled? Long and short of it I guess would be that if it fits you and shoots well, just shoot the dang thing! lol

    Well the way I see it from over here is that Martin's specs must be wrong and your draw length is 28 3/4....But I have another question just out of curiosity...At what length do you cut your arrows? The difference in what you thought you had vs. what you actually have is pretty big.

    cj

    Wait...edit time, I saw it is 27" in another post...does that put the arrow pretty far back?

    Arrows are 27" minus the field points. That is just right with the bodoodle rest. That brings up another point when fully drawn, my arrow comes to the deepest part of the grip and the arrow is 27" which also confirms that I measured right.
