    Thanks. I'm shooting platinum plus with 80 grain points. If lowering the brace height makes them shoot stiff, I can put 100 or 125's on.

    would lowering brace height require...?

    I've got a new string coming and I was thinking of lowering my brace height to 7" from 7 1/2. If I lower the brace height, would that require a different spined arrow?

    The sight I have is low end and the threaded piece isn't that long to begin with. It's not that far out. I use a finger sling and my stab is on the way.
