    If your anchor feels good.....then the loop is fine. There are no set dimensions for a loop.

    Next thing you know you'll be building strings.....:peace:

    Pretty nice loop! How does it feel at full draw? I'll never shoot without a loop again. If you find that they won't stay put, get a set of the viper d-loop pliers. They put some serious tensions in those knots. They'll become permanent loops, with the only way to move them will be to cut them off, and re-tie.

    I prefer my loops quite a bit shorter than that and I add a tied nock under the arrow to help with nock pinch and also to keep your release inline with the arrow.

    Congrats, it's nice when you can do it yourself
