    Default 2008 Firecat draw lenght?

    Since I have switched over to a lefty plan on giving my son the Firecat. Thinking he is a 29 +/- draw lenght,. Can anyone recommend which numbers to slide the module to .

    Also I assume I'll have to change adjustment on the drop away (QAD Hunter) after changing draw lenght.

    2008 Firecat 70# draw weight . We be cranking it down for him around 60#.

    Thanks

    If your son is 29+ you will have to go to the long draw mod which is 29.5" to 31". If 29" the #7 hole will do!

    Rjd, since the Firecat is right handed and your Slayer is your left-handed bow, what side does the 97 HighCountry Protec fling arrows from? Lucky son. But I think that you're shooting the best bow.

    Just an update . We settled in the #6 hole. Made a small adjustment to the draw stop peg. Now he is off to get a peep sight put in the string.

    It was funny watching him draw it back the first couple of times. Then I told him it was only set at 60# .

    Sunday he should be all set up with new arrows . It will be fun helping him and his friend get settled in .

    Got arrows and they started throwing arrows down range. They both settled in at 20 yards. After about 20 they were chewing up the circles of the 10 ring. Was not much longer and they wanted to try 40 . They didn't do too bad for the first nite out.
