    I'm picking my new bow tomorrow at my local bow shop also going to get it set up there. I don't have any bow specific tools at home (working on that) so to get the best possible setup what should I watch for, request and make them do. It's a bow madness 32 by the way.

    I'm not sure if I believe that. My Halon 6 set at 62# 27dl 272 foster with a 386 grain arrow has a good 1/2 inch difference in the 20 and 40 yard pins. I'm sure I could draw 70# but it's impossible for me to draw more than 27". I'm envious if that's true! Congrats on your new toy!

    You must be shooting a super light arrow. With my Chill R shooting 71# & 30" dl shooting 304fps i had about a 4" drop from 20-40yds.

    That seems more like it. I was going to be really surprised if there was no change
