My strings don't have nearly that much give in them after I string them. I do the same stretching method on my bow as he shows in the vid, but I only gain 1/2" or, thereabouts at that point, and by the end of the week shooting 1-200 arrows it is another little bit longer. After that it is pretty stabile.
