Entering a simple composite in the complex composite class.  Or maybe putting an overdraw on a selfbow and entering a class that allows that. I believe you can enter in another class as long as you are at  a disadvantage.

Yes, this is always an option. The complex composite rules allow 4Ē depth at the arrow pass, measured from the back of the bow to the arrow rest.  Additional shelf material can extend even further aft to act as a protective shield in case the arrow is accidentally drawn off the arrow rest and released.

Only in flight . Right Alan? Iíve seen broadheads mounted to where they can be overdrawn some. I here the click of the broadhead against the back of my bow on occasion. Risky but thatís a full draw. Arvin

Pat and all. The shelf - arrow rest is allowed to be 2Ē in-depth .This allows another 1-1/2  on our shorter arrows . Thatís in selfbow and simple composite. Now you know why my handles are so big. Shorter arrow same draw.  Arvin
