    Once it's "warfed" into an ILF format, pretty much any ILF limb will work.

    Go with two nocking points, one above and one below to prevent slippage down the string.

    Nope, stacking won't be an issue.

    FWIW, my wife is 5'2" and her draw length is about 25-26". She shoots a 25" SF Forged riser with medium limbs.

    Higher poundage would tug at your arm more, but if you don't try to ignore the softer tug of a light bow it still works. I use it at 20 lbs. If you can stand some wrist slap from the cord, making it...

    It's okay if you're happy with snap shooting. I never saw you come to full draw, never saw a solid anchor. You are using your arms to draw with little to no back muscles. You're shorting yourself at...

    Most of the rubbing damage on my strings happens right at the bottom edge of the center serving as it rubs my arm guard. Having a longer serving at the bottom helps prevent that damage.

    I'd ask for a new string. The ballooning strand likely indicates an imbalance in strand tension which would account for the peep rotating. Who knows what else might be wrong that you can't see.

    The clicker doesn't force you to have perfect anything. It also shouldn't be a signal to release. It's merely a gauge that you've reached full draw exactly the same each time.
