    Default Question about Tunning a Bow

    When adjusting the draw weight on a compound bow, are ALL of them different or is there a standard number of turns you can safely make to set the bow at the lowest draw weight?

    In other words, assumming I'm starting at the highest weight setting, what is the maximum number of turns I can make to lower it to the lowest draw weight without being in danger of having the limbs fly off?

    what ever it"s draw weight is rated at
    55-70..i wouldnt go below 55lbs..make sure you turn the bolts evenly
    and i only turn 1 full turn then switch off back and forth and keep checking the weight..till you get what you want.then you check the tiller.measurement
    and adjust the limbs to measure out right.
    Hope this help's

    Not all bow limbs are the same. Some have only a 10 lb range while other have a 15 lb range. Best to find out what yours is. Some like the switchback xt have faster threads on the limb bolts and drop the weight twice as fast per turn. Going by KBO's method of measuring the weight would be a safe way to do it if you did'nt know for sure.
