Not positive if I can get a factory set up seems like the hoyt tune charts are saying I can but I would like to go shorter on the ata. I need to build something for a short draw archer ranging from 23-23.5 inch draw and around 40lbs max. I would like to build either a ultratec/ elite or protec/elite. Could I get away with using 1000 limbs on either of these? Im looking to use a cam 1/2 system either plus or the old style. Any ideas on cam numbers, limb deflection, string lengths? Thanks for any help. Other ideas for these risers would be appreciated as well.

On my 03 protec
Limbs - XT2000 56 def=30-40lb
Cams - H-1 (A cams) 24-27.5
Brace - 8

If you go to XT1000's
Limbs - XT1000 56 def=33-43lb
Cams - H-1 (A cams) 23.5-26
Brace - 7.5

If you go to XT500
Limbs - XT500 56 def=34-44lb
Cams - H-1 (A cams) ~22.625-25.125
Brace - 7.125

Note (XT500) if you extend the ATA 1/2 in to get rid of the extra poundage you will also reduce the brace and the draw.
When I tried this on my bow at ATA-36.25 I received a 7.125 brace at by extending it to ATA-37.25 I achieved a 5.5 brace. So at 36.75 the brace should be 6.3125 and again be a 30-40lb bow with a 6 5/16 brace and a draw of ~21.875-24.375
That should be perfect for your application. These numbers will work on a Protec #5 rockers , ProElite # 5 rockers. For #7 rockers you will loose about 1/2in in Brace and increase the poundage in doing so. Contender limbs are XT500's and a 76 def will give you 55-65lb @ ATA - 37.25 and 60-70 at 36.75. That is the set I used and decided not to go with because the poundage was to high for my application. If they were 64 def and a 50-60lb I would be using them now.
