Default New to me Bob Lee!

Mikey like! I picked up a used exotic 60" really like it got to shoot it a fair bit today. It's a little louder than I expected with my current arrows. Have beaverballs on now any suggestions for less noise? Arrows are full length trad only 500 with 200 up front. Bow is 53#@28 guessing I'm 27" draw. Thanks Mike.

Just looked at the web site said 8" for a 60" will put a few twists in and see.

Congrats on the bow Mike. My Bob Lee like 8.25” brace. Twist it up a turn at a time till it quiets down. Twist some more till it gets loud again then back it off. That’ll be your sweet spot.

Had to give them up. Termites are so bad that any misses stuck in the ground are all chewed up before I can get to 'em!!!

Ha ha!
I do bet your humidity could affect straightness over time.
Been shooting wood arrows for 30 years.
