Nobody can tell if your D-loop length is right, by looking at a picture of your D-loop.
Other than if it's just way too short.

it will stretch some as you shoot...it all depends on how it feels when you anchor

I've had d loops 1",3/4" and 1/2". It is what works for you and your anchor.

When i get a new bow I start with a long Dloop (1in) and then try shorter and shorter. I stop when i find the length that gives me the best anchor and the steadiest float. Only u can tell what length will work best...Good luck

Thats not really torque less. It can still torque the string depending how you anchor. Check you tube for GRIV's torque less loop videos. I have one and I love it.

Not complicated at all and the only tool I use is my Allen wrench tool ( i wrap the string around it. its the perfect size to make my string bundle) i make the loop on the string and don't need a bow press to install it. For a true torqueless loop you will make the loop exactly the same only make it under the nock set and when completed slide the loop together. With a non capture drop away this style may be better with a larger bottom nock so you get a little "down pressure " on the rest. And on the plus side you shouldn't need to replace the loop until your ready for new strings. Definitely worth a try, good luck

Looks good, just might check it out. Will do some research on how to make it.

If your DL is correct and the string goes thru the corner of your mouth, then your d-loop should be at the length to make your release hand anchor where it supposed to. No one can tell from a pic.
