    You would probably be further along to just leave the D-loop and try a hindsight. At least then there is probably be less alteration to the drawlength of the set-up.
    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    Jesus Christ & The American G. I.
    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    Some People spend their whole lives wondering if they made a difference in the world.
    Luckily our Service Men and Women don't have that problem.

    Leave the D-Loop and try to gain that speed by loosing the Peep and replacing it with a Hind.

    I didnt know what he was saying either.
    The peep didnt slow my bow down
    The correct DL did.

    I dont like shootin 250
    Not fast enough for 3D

    Not fastest enough for 3D
    Oh, then it's simpler than we thought.
































    You just have to grow longer arms or displace your head further back on your neck.

    I would definately suggest the growing of longer arms then. Displacing your head that far back on your neck may look a little funny.
