    Tony,

    Would it be reasonable to twist/un-twist the string to change drawlength 1/4"? Any idea how many twists it might take to do this? The bow is a Supra ME with a string length of around 60".

    Are you fixed on 2315s? I have about the same draw length and draw weight as you, and I shoot 2312 Eclipse with success. For indoor 20-yard games, I see no great reason to go to carbons.
