My 70lb/28" Pulse is confusing me a little. I have been playing with this thing and I am not sure where to go. I am not to far off but dw is concerning me a little and my DL is Long. Here is what I have:
74.6 lbs peak weight with limbs maxed minus 1/4 turn
14lbs 3oz letoff (approx 81%)
34 7/16 A2A
6 3/32 BH measured from deepest part of the grip to center of the strings diameter
28 9/16 DL with 28" mods
From everything I have read most important would be peak weight, draw length and holding weight. Below is a quote from a post by Armstrong13.
Here is a list of tuning variables, in order of importance, for all the 2011
1. Peak Weight +2.5 lbs/-0.0 lbs
2. Draw Length +1/16" to 3/8" depending on model and mod
3. Holding Weight - should be no less than 80% and in most cases much
4. ATA +/- .125"
5. Brace +/- .125"
6. Speed Rating (taking into account chrono variation)
Basically, if your cams are synced and numbers 1,2 and 3 are in spec the
bow will be in it's optimal tuned position no matter what the orientation is.
So I am already 5/16" long on A2A and if I take twists out of the cables to reduce peak weight that will lengthen A2A even more or if I add twists to the string my DL which is already 9/16" long will get longer. I have read that most find there sweet spot at about 1/4" long on DL and that would be perfect for me.
For you guys that have tuned a few of the Pulses:
Are you finding peak weight that high after tuning?
On average where are you +/- on DL
Are You finding the A2A to be long and if so how long?
If these were the specs on your bow what would you do?
Thanks in advance from a guy still learning.
