    Not mine. Thanks, I'll try with the stopper first and see how it goes. Very much appreciated. I owe you a beer.

    Stéphane, By the photo it looks like the draw stop is less then half way, if it was in the middle than it would be 26.5'.

    the draw stop will give you alot of draw length adjustmemt, but also affects letoff. if you prefer a higher holding weight, id start by putting the next higher module in, or if adjustment is minor you may be ok just moving your stop a little. my cheetah with the f7 mod in and the stopper on the minus side feels really short. shorter than the f6 mod with the stop on the plus side all of the way. ........... its a matter of feel, and its best to adjust so you are comfortable, and steady. i seem to preferthe lighter letoff....

    Justin, as he moves it to the + on the cam he will be getting more let off. He also is only 1/4" or so away from he draw length. According to the pic it is not at 26.5 length it is less. So moving it to the plus appears to be the best solution. Unless he finds the length to short.

    Time out please. It's Stéphane, not Stephanie. I'm a guy so lets start with that. I'm French Canadian, hence the name.

    Okay, back to the real issue. I moved the draw stop, but wasn't entirely happy with that. So I tried to change the module to #4. I couldn't. The holes were slightly off in relation to the threads, meaning I couldn't put it on. It seems that the module isn't sitting perfectly in.

    So, back to the original module with the draw stop backed a bit.

    In my manual, it says I can get an extra 1/2" by moving the pegs. I have no idea what those are and how to do it.

    My sincere apologies about the gender mistake. Back to the real issue. Some of the cams have extra pegs. So you can take your string off one peg and move it to another. Thus 1/2" increments. The Acu trak doesn't. How far did you move your draw stop? Did you move it to the plus sign, if you did that would be 27"of draw length. Changing it to the next module would be 28" draw length. That can be done by loosening the limb bolts as we discussed before. Then have some one pull on the cable to move the position of the cam to install the module.

    I did back off the limbs, but it wasn't necessary. Removing the first module was easy. I tried to put the new one in, but it didn't fit. It doesn't sit properly. Just a tiny wee bit off. I tried moving the string but the module moves too, but no closer to fit. It might be a defective one. Now I don't want to take module #3 off because when I screwed it back in, I felt that the thread won't allow more playing with.

    So, I might just bring it back to my pro shop.

    I believe that would be a good idea. Your pro shop can adjust it to the best comfortable fit. I know that I had to try 2 different modules to get it right.

    Thumbs up

    On top of thanking you again, I might add that your step by step was easy to understand and follow. You should write their manuals because I was so confused reading the instructions. You paint a good picture.

    Mr. Stéphane
