    Ata?

    I need clarification, when I read that a certain bow is, say 32" ata, does that mean the bow measures 32" between the axles or is the measurement from center to center on the axles?
    Thanks.

    Center to center. Measure between the two shafts that hold the cams.

    So, are you saying measure BETWEEN the shafts, or from the CENTER of one shaft, to the CENTER of the other?

    Center of one axle to the center of the other axle.

    Center to center = AtA

    But,it much easier to measure from TOP of axle to TOP of axle.
    Gives the same number....just a much easier way to get the measurment.

    Thank you. That is how I've been measuring but the phrase, "axle TO axle", got me thinking too much!

    Put the bow on your dining room table,
    so the bowstring goes left to right.

    Hook the tape measure
    on the axle to your left
    and
    measure to the inside edge of the axle to your right.

    You can TRY to hold the end of the tape measure
    at the center of the axle on the left
    and
    you can try to get a reading at the center of the axle on the right.

    You will get the SAME measurement, more accurately,
    if you go left edge to left edge,
    cuz both axles are the same diameter.

    Measuring from limb tip to limb tip, will not give you an accurate AtA measurment...

    Ok...just tried it on 3 different Elements and a GTO.
    The Elements measured about 1/16-1/8" different measuring LT to LT VS. AtA (GTO was 3/16" different)
    Maybe the limb tip method works better on certain bow brands over others
