You will not having any problems, the riser is on the other side of the string. You may experience string slap with such big fore arms.
The protec will be a great choice for 3D. You didn't mention you weight you will be shooting, but I think you should be in the 280's to 290's. The IBO for that bow is 305 fps, but I think that is rated with a 29" draw.

I'm getting 280+fps with my Protec with the brace height at 8.75" at 28" with ACE's and 54# draw. I also use this bow in FITA shooting and finished 12th at our National Indoors shooting it. It's fast, accurate and forgiving.

Shooting the protec w/cam and 1/2 at 28" and getting 280+ @ 5 gr/lb. Sure would think the spirals would more than make up the speed loss for the inch less of DL. Good shooting bow !

Great choice. You will not have a problem getting 280 out of that bow. We set up a Pro Tec with Spiral cams 27 1/2" 58 lbs 320 grain arrow 284fps.

3Spot
Only for indoors where I use X7 2312's. When I have my correct rest on (which my wife pinched and took to the Worlds) it's a real spot killer. I'm considering going to X7 2112's on a 2" overdraw for 3D, however the weight is a tough too high to get the speed up with Alloys.

BTW anyone considering this bow for 3D, someone posted a comparison between the drop in arrow placement with a 280fps shot and a 305fps shot if estimation was 5yards out at 50yards. The difference was minor (side my side). 280 is more than enough.
