    Just missed each other on that Hutch. I edited my post after reading your other post on arrows.

    You add 1 3/4" to your 'too the pivot of grip' if you want AMO, simple.

    I wonder how much of this is going on, my Bear was way over AMO too.

    Well when I first checked the draw length and added 1 3/4 of an inch to it. I knew that 28 3/4 is great, except I would have to have gorilla arms. Since I am just a small fry. It is beginning to look like a improperly marked draw module. I have a 27" draw length and on every bow it is been the same. So as you said doesn't matter. It shoots right, feels right, and is accurate. I will just shoot it.

    Can someone direct me to where all these phrases are defined? 26" Mod? ATA? BH? Measuring to the deepest part of the grip?? I'd like to know since I need to make sure my new bow is correct in its draw length compared to my draw length and my arrows which are cut at 29" not including the nocks and field tips and/or broadheads.

    Mod = Cam Module. Rated by numbers to give a particular draw length on a particular model bow.
    ATA = Axle to axle measurement. Important to draw weight, draw length and brace hieght.
    BH = Brace Height. The measurement of the distance from the pivot of the grip to the string, the maximum distance to the string.

    Maybe a 'Measurements & Definitions' sticky would be useful Hutch.

    LIbowhunter, you will also see these abbreviations as well:
    DL: Draw length
    DW: Draw weight

    I guess we (or at least me) tend to shorten things up so we can type faster.

    Hutch, you got me to wondering as well. I just checked my Onza. 28 3/4 from the back of the grip to the string apex. So add on the 1 3/4 inch for AMO, and that's 30.5 inches. I have the mods set in the #4 hole. Moving it to the #7 hole would be a 32 inch draw length AMO, or 30 inch to the back of the grip...........and it is spec'd at 30.5 max draw length......neither is right.....
