If the draw length is correct the 65% forces you to hold into the draw stop more because of the add weight your holding.:wink:Agree with DaleB1 and would also add that I've found that I creep if the weight at full draw is too light. I've gone to 65# letoff. 72# @ 85% caused me to creep every now and then. Since I've gone to 72# at 65% I have not creeped once. Just my two cents.
Think you have that backward 85% is rare to find 80% is avaliable in almost all bows. The other thing you might look at is making your draw shorter and that helps you to hold into the draw stop with higher letoff.:wink:Well at 85% I found that for some reason my muscles would relax and I'd unconsiously creep foreward. The higher holding weight at 65% keeps me from relaxing. I actually thought of buying an 80% bow but the market is pretty limited.
Speed isn't everything and most 70# bows today even with a short draw are plenty fast enough IMHO. I shoot 27" draw and 55# and get 258fps, plenty fast enough for anything I want to hunt in North America. You may beable to pull that 80# and it is your choice but everyone I ever knew that does for any amount of time eventually has shoulder problems.:wink:Well DaleB1 when you are 5'5" and weigh 231# with a short 26" DL you do what you can do to find speed. I can't grow longer arms. Mine is draw weight. I can muscle pretty much anything back. Guys in my club groan over 50 and 60 pound bows and draw with the arrow pointed toward the sky. I smoothly draw my 72# back in a perfectly straight line to my anchor point. I'd like to try an 80 pounder. I bet it would be a breeze.
The evo will not work. If he creeps out of the valley the release will go off. Fix the problem not the symptom.Friend of mine shoots a Hoyt pro-elite at 56# with spiral cams at 26.5" and is gettting 300fps. You don't have to pull big weight to get speed, but to deel with your creeping problem try using a back tension release like the EVO+ or the squeeze me.
If that's the case....I doubt it's drawlength.Thanks for the replys. I recently switched from a strap style release to a stan sx2. I have another bow on the way so i will set that one at 27" And see if that makes a difference.Then i can get another cam for my drenalin. Thanks again for the help
+1, fix the problem shorten the draw.:wink:
