Re: buss cable stop adjustment question
Rut Warrior- glad you found this, but now for the bad news. Your bow may not be in time, and probably not tuned as well as it could be. What has happened is you have actually been shooting the bow at 65% letoff rather than the 75% let off it was designed for. Hence, it felt like it was pulling you out of your socks when you let down. Without a drawboard, you probably cant watch the upper and lower stops as you get to full draw. As best as you can, have someone look at your bow at full draw to see if the top and bottom draw stops are at the same point. Many people like the top stop to hit about a credit card thickness before the bottom stop. Personally, I heel the grip a little more and like them to hit exactly the same. Another common adjustment is to remove the little rubber bumper in the top string stop, then retime the bow. It gives the bow a much harder back wall. Not too late to take the bow to a good Hoyt Dealer and get this checked.
Wishing I was at camp!
