Default Looking for advice

I'm setting up the new bow and I'm considering using a string loop. Never used one before. What are the PROS & CONS?

What about draw length? Will I need to lengthen or shorten the stops?

Easier on your serving, no nock pinch, crispier release, and very cool looking. As for the dl change it depends on how you look at it. You bows effective dl does not change but you will be slightly farther back in your anchor..........PROBABLY

So it don't change yore draw lenght but it sure does make a bow with a 1/2" to short draw lenght feel just right
when ya put a 1/2' loop on it.

Definitely try a loop, it's an easy fix if you don't like it.
