    You could move your draw stop, although by doing this you will have less let-off.

    what most fail to realize, that a little a bend in the arm is OK. Shoot with the shorter draw length, bend your bow arm a bit.
    have fun shooting! I know if I had extra cash at the time, there would be an exile sitting in my stable...thank god i dont carry much cash anymore.

    Would be better to make a longer d-loop than altering the release aid.

    You could go to a number 3 mod and lengthen using the draw stop too.

    Yep, some people shoot fine that way.

    What if he just simply twisted up the string some? Start out with a 29"dl and try to twist it to shorten up his draw. My dad did that for me on a bow that was a half inch longer than my draw. I dont know what the ratio is on twists to inches. Would that work, or would that be to many twists?

    You could reach some sort of compromise with this idea. Add some twists to the string, maybe 10. Then take some twists out of the cable, maybe 5. This should reduce the draw a little. Then shorten up a little using the draw stop. The only real downside to this twisting is that the draw weight will drop several pounds, but as I wlways say, poundage is just a number. Speed, power, kinetic energy can be compromised some but never draw length.

    That's correct, its a vital thing to get right. So many archers will mess it up to gain a little speed.

    I just bought this Bow for my son. Martin carries modules that need to be swapped out to adjust the draw length. Martin Part #3056 This is for single Cam. Its that black piece held on with 2 screws. You'll need a rack to swap them out. Good Luck

    Do you mean a bow press? If so, not needed. One screw is easy to get to, but the other is usually behind the limb fork. To get an allen wrench to that screw, put a zip tie around the string and cable, pull tight enough to rotate the screw into a position where you can reach it.
