    Default Cougar FC Hybrix 2.0 Cam Draw Length

    Just setting up my new bow but a little confused. It says it goes down to 25" draw but the tech chart says #1 on the module will set it at 26.5" minimum. I have it on the #1 but curious what length that is.

    The chart I saw says 25.5" min. DL. Hmmmm.... If you can, measure it from the apex of the string to the deepest part of the grip, and add 1.75".

    Arrow splitter is correct that you can just measure, but remember that the draw stop really sets you draw length and the draw module adjusts how much of a letoff or valley that you will have. If you move the draw stop further to the negative you will get a shorter draw. Once you get used to these cams you will realize that they so adjustable and you can set them up to shoot to your shooting style.

    So I could bottom out the draw stop for minimum draw length but still put the module at 2.5 for 28" and just have a 26 draw but a huge wall?

    Think of it this way. If you have it set for a 28" DL, and just draw until you reach 26", the cams will not have fully rotated, and you'll be holding more of the weight. This is exactly what will happen if you set the draw stop to stop the cams at 26" with the mod set for 28".

    That would explain why the guy that set it up said there was no adjusting the let off but the tech from Martin said the bow is 65-80% let off. I called Martin to find out why the specs had variable OBO speeds from 325-345, he said 345 was the 65% left off and 325 was 80%.

    I have it set at the far negative on the draw stop to get 26" draw then on the 1 module. Doesn't seem to be much of a wall on it. Good for speed, bad for arm muscles if the deer wants a long stare down!

    you could put some twists in the string and take a couple out of the cables then open up your draw stop

    May need to find a good shop here in AZ that deals with Martin and get it tuned for me. Initial set up was at Sportman's Warehouse...nice people and set up was free but think an archery shop would be able to fine tune a little better.

    Depending on where you live you could probably find a really great tuner such as Crackers on Archery Talk. Also if the bow is just unusable and twisting the bowstring doesn't shorten the draw enough, you may be able to have someone that knows what they are doing short string the bow. Hutch who is a member here can probably help you out he makes high quality bowstrings and would have a good idea how much you could make up by short stringing the bow.
