  • I'm an idiot

    So, I received my 09 XLR. I love everything about it. I was setting it up tonight and had it in and out of my EZ Press, Putting it on the scale, draw board and drawing it back (with an arrow of coarse). I finally had everything where I wanted it and I needed to take a half twist out of the string to line my peep. I took it out of the press, put an arrow in it and drew it back. Thats right, the last draw before bed and I forgot to put the draw stops back in. I immediately put it in the press and got the strings and cables put back on. Can this cause any problems?

    As long as it didn't dry fire you should be ok.

          Just to be safe and with all honesty,,, I think you should send it to someone else to test fire it... I would gladly volunteer for this dangerous misssion, let me know...

            Been there done that, did it to my GT500. I now take one of the draw stops and tape it to the grip just as a reminder.

              Don't guess I understand

              What happens when you draw it back without a draw stop?

                Potentialy you can lock up the cams while at full draw to where they do not want to move. Not a good idea to do that.

                      I have not done this with my Elite's but I did do it with my 2007 Tribute. Last draw of the night too (imagine that). I put the bow in a press and fixed it. I shot that bow for another 6 months with no problems. Welcome to the club....

                              The fingers on the EZ Press wont allow me to press the bow with them on. If I'm wrong and there is a way to do it please let me know. I'm going to order the short fingers so this wont happen again.
                              Thanks,
