Roughly what are the let off percentages of the realm x in comfort and performance setting?

How does the performance setting affect the draw or draw force curve? Does it just take longer to reach peak weight or does it carry peak weight longer?

I could be wrong but I remember someone measuring the letoff at 80% on comfort and 73% on performance.

My Realm X is 53# holding weight is 10# in performance setting. My brother just bought a Elite 37 yesterday it is 63# and holding weight is 8#.

I ordered some bomar draw stops and put them one position back from the set draw length and it feels like 83%-84% in performance to me. it gave it a great valley and the back wall is rock solid, it feels really similar to my Obsession K-34 which is about 83% and has limb stops. I love the Realm-X now, those stops completely changed the feel of that bow in performance.

Where did you order yours from and did you leave your mod at the correct draw length and the steps one longer?

That's exactly what I did. 28.5" draw but stops are in the 29" hole. Gives me about 83-84% let off. This will change a lot depending on your draw length so if you guys play around with this, be sure to use a draw board and check all the variables before going full tilt with it.

Keep mod at the right length and just play a little with the limb stop position. Be sure the cables are not wrapping too hard around the axle and you should be fine.

yea, just like stated above, it really gives the bow almost like a elite/obsession feel on the draw into the valley and at the wall, fantastic in my opinion.

I ordered mine direct from Bomar

i tested mine today when i got home, need to increase the poundage, but the average on mine is:
total weight 69.14 lbs , holding weight was 10.4, that is 85% let off, pretty stoked.
that is in performance, draw mod in correct slot, draw stop one slot back.

I forget all the numbers but out of the box mine was almost 87% let off, which is more than I like after a string change and tuning it’s at 81% now and perfect for me

What was your draw length set at?

Which Bomar stops did you use? I'm interested in moving my draw stops 1 hole further out to achieve more letoff. I'm a 30 inch dl though. Very intrigued to hear this may work.
