    I got my Creed yesterday after waiting a 4 week wait to get. Finally, it made it. I shot just a few times yesterday with it just to set it up. Shot 12 arrows today and grouped awesomely. Very consistent. Love the bow. smooth draw. I was wanting to know if anyone else has one and to see if when they draw theirs if they notice a big canyon at the end of the draw. I don’t notice a canyon and the string wants to rock forward on me quite a bit. I was wondering if it was me or if I needed to adjust something to make a bigger canyon so the string isn’t wanting to move forward on me. I am open to suggestions good or bad. Thank you

    If it is wanting to “creep” on you as in wanting to jump forward and go off it sounds as if your draw length on the bow is to long. You should pull into the draw stop and it should be solid and not want to creep on you{#emotions_dlg.mathews_peace}

    yep that’s why the two draw stops were made for it. Pulling into the stop should keep you from creeping.

    Ok. I will take it to the shop I got it and have them look at it when I’m at full draw. I ordered it about 1″ shorter than my normal draw so when I put on the D loop if should be right on the money. What about not feeling any canyon let off. I’m kinda new to bow language. Other than that I love the bow.

    No sure what you mean at feeling any canyon?? they make a smaller rubber stop which gives you a little more valley but when you shoot the bow you shouldn’t really feel much my Creed has no real felt shock{#emotions_dlg.mathews_peace}

    Yeah the valley is what I meant. There is nothing felt when I shoot mine. I will talk with the pro shop I got mine at to see about getting a smaller stop to get more of a valley. Thank you for your help.

    Why would you order it an inch shorter than your normal DL? are you putting a one inch loop on it? no matter anyway….the loop does not change your DL? the Dl of the bow is the DL of the bow. adding a loop does not change your DL? especially an inch…thats kind of alot to be off by IMHO.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_peace}

    Could be your draw length….but surprised they would order you a bow to long.

    I would ask about a different draw stop. The Helim has a more skinny draw stop to help with the valley.

    Maybe it would fit on your Creed or they have one made for it.

    Let us know how it all works out for you.

    the draw length is perfect it is just wanting to creep forward and there isn’t much of a valley when get to full draw. I have to go pick up my arrows form the place I got it from this week so I will ask him then about it.

    Just got my creed the other day and hate there s absolutely no valley. I will inquire about the smaller draw stop with my dealer. Hope it makes a difference or I’m selling this thing.

    My Creed has a generous valley even with the bigger draw stop – I can hold it back “all day”.  It is actually more generous than that of the Helim, which I also own.

    If the string wants to “creep” or jerk forward,  it could also mean you are “over bowed” and even at the 20% draw weight at the let off point is a little too much to hold back comfortably. Try lowering the draw weight by 2 -4 lbs and see if that helps.

    I went from a XT to the Creed and i love the way it draws back.  yes indeed a loop does increase your DL.  maybe not the DL of the bow but your total DL.  Sounds to me that you are too long on the draw length.  Maybe 1/4 extra DL with a string loop.  i used to shoot a 29 DL and went to a 28 DL and am very happy with a string loop attached.  good luck

    A string loop has NO effect on the bows draw length.  A string loop will effect or change your “Anchor Point”

    I am a 28″ DL and always order the same size bow.  Tying a very short string loop helps me maintain my consistent anchor point.

    Best of Luck

    I picked up my brand new creed tactical today and it is awesome.  But like what was mentioned about the draw length sounds right to me.  I had my draw length mesured all over again to make sure everything was good to go, bumped it up half an inch.  The wall on the creed is crazy, effortless would be a better description.  Congrats on your new bow.
