Many moons ago I attached a 3 inch overdraw to a Hoyt Pro Hunter ( I think that is what is was called ) I am talking somewhere in the early 80's when bows had round wheels, 30 % let off, ( amazing) and if we shot a compound at all it was with fingers and no sights. I was shooting alloy 2219's. The vision was at the time by shortening the arrow I could shoot 2216's or 2217's that were shorter and therfore faster. This would, in theory, make my shot flatter and less open to range error problems. As these days we did not have range finders either. This was all for hunting as the only target shooting we did those days was directly for hunting practice, more like stump shooting.
It did work to a degree, however my lefts and rights suffered. I think this was due to the fact that the arrow now pivoted well behind my wrist. The experiment was short lived.
Still a Scout.
I'm not trying to be difficult. It just comes naturally.
