Micro 355 lower DW

Post by RITerry » Fri Jan 06, 2017 8:26 am

I am told there is a way to lower the DW on the Micro 355 using shorter String Stops and taking twist out of string. I hear the loss of speed is only 10 to 15 FPS but the DW is much more comfortable.

Nope that would increase the power stroke and actually make it worse. A lower brace height is also bad news for limbs. The only alternative is to shorten the mainframe by a machinist..

It is cheaper to go the route Jeff outlined. Any qualified machinist could do the work in minutes and for less than $100. I'll add that Danny Miller would probably be the best person for you to contact for this, he's had this done for many people over the years. It's hard to find Micro mainframes, so just machine yours back to 335 or 315 specs.

I'm certain a couple of folks on this forum would love to swap a 355 mainframe for a 315/336. They might have even PM'd the OP by now.

Terry, I would be happy to trade you my shorter Micro 335 rail and riser for yours or perhaps just trade bows... Mine is pretty much like new and does shoot the advertised speed of 335.4 and 335.6 let me know if either trade sounds reasonable.

Feel free to call me at 360-989-6355 for further discussion.

Food for thought for the OP:

-if swapping rails, you have a black riser on your 355, anyone you trade with will have a grey mainframe
-a Gen 1 Micro 335 mainframe will give you a Micro 315

Why not just get a C2 crank?
