    the seller hasn't replied to my first questions about the bow yet.
    i bought a martin mystic from an AT seller in the north east states area this time last year. post was $60 but he went me halves, so $30, took about 2 weeks and arrived in good condition. for $300 i was very happy with a bow that was like brand new. put a rest and nock on, and had it shooting that arvo, as no sights or release required, DL was perfect. was pleasantly surprised for somebody who'd never even seen a mystic. liked the specs and took a gamble on that one. bought it to have as a spare, but its been my 3d comp bow all this year, and still haven't seen another mystic.

    anyway still waiting for a reply from the seller.

    Minnie,

    Got to give you credit. You got guts buying a bow you know absolutely nothing about. Never saw or shot. Tell ya what. I've ordered my last ten or so bows that way. After so many years I can look at the specs and tell whether I'll like it or not.

    Oh, and the a2a should be about 39" on the P3. Only thing that should slow you down is that even with the Nitrous A cams (smallest) it's advertised draw length only goes down to 25.5". I think that's with standard modules though. You could try to find a used pair of Mini-mods and this would reduce it by 2". Or you could twist the string/untwist the cables to get that half inch.

    There's a guy over on AT that bought mine a few years ago for his wife. His user name is Sandsquid. Try getting hold of him and get some feedback from him about the bow. Actually, he bought it for his wife who ended up shooting it and becoming Women's State Champion a few months later. I think this was in Tennessee or Kentucky. Anyway, see if you can get hold of him.

    He was on here too, but became inactive and was wiped from the forum when it was redone.

    disappointed that the seller from that other forum never replied about the phantom i was interested in, and now i see the thread over there is closed.

    thanks to you all for your replies.
