    From your post on the other tread, where you mention 32.875" A-T-A:

    how do you get it back to spec....?
    This probably happened when Vapor Trail string/cable were put on.......AND this may explain why a F7 module is giving you 29"

    Hopefully somebody will verify this, but I think twisting string/cable to get you back down close to 32.0" ATA will require module change to F5 to get the 29" draw back.......and I'm guessing speed will come up.

    You also mentioned brace weight of 7" which is right, but that isn't from bowstring. You take a string/thread stretched tight between axles and measure from that string.
    From bowstring it would be higher

    With all due respect I do disagree with the explanation for measuring brace height. Brace height is, indeed, measured from the bowstring to the deepest part of the grip. Using a string from axle to axle is the method of checking tiller in single cam bows.
