      AMO is true draw + 1.75"

      True draw is the measurment from the deepest part (throat) of the grip to the nock point on the string at full draw.

        OK, I have never actually measured my bow at full draw. I shoot a Switchback at 28" DL. So would it be correct for me to shoot 29 3/4" DL on a 2008 Elite?

        • No, it will still be a 28. If you measure true draw of the Matthews it will probably be around 26.25-27, I don't know if they run long or not, it should be right at 26.25"

            I'm going off my memory which sometimes forgets to hit the save button, I pretty sure it was around 318-322 fps. I am not at work today so I can't look at my testing sheets. I will verify this tomorrow.
            Thanks for the info Kevin. Can't wait to try one out.

              My 2008 Aigil was true AMO draw length as well?

                    • Thanks Kevin

                      I thought I would share this. Here are some numbers I asked Kevin for at 28" DL.

                      The GTO shot the following:
                      60# 28"
                      300 gr= 322 fps 69.0 K.E.
                      360 gr= 300 fps 71.96 K.E.
                      375 gr= 294 fps 71.99 K.E.
                      400 gr= 286 fps 72.67 K.E.

                          • should i figure a 5 to 10 fps bump for 70#s or is it basically the same (due to gpp)?

                              On the other elites it shows a 4fps loss due to 60lb limbs, so you should see the same with this bow. I am soooo pumped for this bow, those speeds are great!
                              I shoot what feels the best, who will make it this year??

                              • Ok now I am confused with my draw lengths. I just put my tribute and Synergy on my draw board and measured from the deepest part of the grip to the string. On both bows it measured 27 1/4 inches. On both of these bows I have them set for a 28" DL. Why is it 3/4 inch off? And when I go to order a GTO what should I get?
