happened to me the other day. Can someone explain, please?

I shoot a Mathews LX solocam. 26.5" draw. I wanted to try 27" so I moved the peg on the cam. Longer draw is supposed to mean more energy under the graph, right?

Shooting at 100 yds, same sight setting, 122cm FITA face:

26.5" = arrows in/around the gold, 4" group
27" = arrows LOW in the black, slightly left of centre, 6" group

I was really expecting the arrows to be high.

Can anyone explain, please, as I liked the extra draw length (easier to hold on the gold) but I don't want to sacrifice the tight groups. I shouldn't need to change the nock point height, should I?

nock point??

I'm just guessing because I'n not familiar with Mathews bows, but did you re-tune your bow after adjusting your draw length? Chances are, with the string moved to a different anchor point on your cam the nock point has risen slightly. Not only would this start your arrows off a little lower, the larger groups could be due to being a little out of tune as well.

Good luck.

By the way, I'd say that's pretty good shooting anyways! :teeth:
