Overdraws used to be used as means for shooting a shorter arrow in the days of heavy aluminum arrows so that you could shoot a lighter, thus faster arrow at expense of forgiveness
With todays arrow technology and higher efficiency bows they are no longer provide a major speed advantage.
a 32" draw more than compensates adds more than enough energy to compensate for 20 more grains of arrow weight. and maintains a more forgiving geometry which is generally more conducive to accuracy. Arrow/rest pivot point over bow/hand pivot point.
A friend of mine was using an overdraw without the shelf and arrow came of of rest to rest broadhead point on back of his hand at full draw!.... he was doing some gesticulations at full draw and trying to pull arrow sideways of his hand with his tongue!.....
Overdraws went the way of the 80lb bow for North American game.

It was the top cam.
Thanks everyone for the help
Could be a few things. A dry limb pocket, or maybe the cam bearing is dry and the axle is spinning in the limbs. Or worse, it's a cracked limb but that's unlikely it's probably just a dry limb pocket.
