I'm having trouble with my let-off. It's as if I relax just the slightest, I'll want to go forward. Do you know what could be causing this. Mission X3's let-off is set at 75%. Do yall know could be up?
Thanks and God bless,

75% is what the let-off is on the X3 bow

Are you sure that your bow is setup and timed correctly?

Well, that's what my shop said, but they measured me again and it was 27.5". To be honest it feels like my left arm is bending a lot. It isn't as stiff as I would expect it to be.

Draw Weight

I just bought my first bow a few months ago and was having a bit of the same problem. Mine is a Bowtech Old Glory. It was set at 60 lbs, and the guy helping me backed it down to 55 lbs and it has really helped. Once I get my muscles used to this weight, then I'll gradually bring it back to 60.

Probably not much help if you've been shooting for a few years, but maybe you're new like me.

Good luck.

this suggestion has a lot of merit also, and you dont really want your bow arm that stiff anyways

I've not all that new to the sport. I've been shooting 60lbs for a bout 4 months. Also, I know I don't want my left are too stiff because it can cause torque, but my elbow just seems to have pretty good bit of bend in it.

I'm beginning to lean towards it being a 1/2" too long. I just got done shooting some more and it felt real ar back at full draw.

If it wants to horse away from you first indication the draw is too long and or the poundage is too high for you..:wink:

Thanks guys, I've figured it out. The draw length is too long. So now, I've either got to get a new cam or wait to get my new bow.
