I have an Outback and just put a new vapor trail vtx on it, I am measuring exactly 32 inches a to a, should I be worried about not being exactly 31 1/2?

yes I put the new cables on as well, I bought the bow and it registered 72lbs now I have 69 1/2.

I put new strings on my outback also. Shoot them in first, Then set the bow up to approximate 31 1/2 and your poundage should be a little above 70# and your brace height will be just about right. It all just falls into place. You should be closer than 32" ata because I bet your bow isn't getting max poundage like it should because mine wasn't and thats about what i had when i started.

I would max out the limbs and put the bow to ata spec

twisting the split yoke(yoke attached) will shorten the ata, increase poundage and increase draw length

you can then twist your string to shorten what length is added to the draw length....JB
