My friend has a bow that is a 30" d.l. He is a 28" The bow can not be changed. Can I safely put a 2" shorter string on it?

You acn put it on, but expect maybe 10# to 20# droip in peak weight. A lot less letoff and poor performance.

Depending on the bow and cam system up to 1/2" might be acceptable but 2" is way too much. What model bow is it?

Yeap, I wouldn't advise it. But, if you want to try, you can always take it off. You might take the grip off this would help. Use a caliper off the string, or contact the manufacturer. You might get lucky and get the cam exchanged.

I really think I would contact the manufacturer and see if there is any suggestions they can make. Some of the Jennings had an adjustable draw stop.

grip removal

Wouldn't this be increasing the draw length?

No, shorter string means shorter draw length.

Shorter cable or longer string means longer draw length.

This is what I meant

I thought that this would make for a longer draw basically.
