Okay guys I need some help here!
2011 Martin Silencer, I built a set of strings for it.
1. The bow is a 55-70lbs
2. It does not register 70lbs- 68 max
3. recommended 32" ATA its @ 31 5/8"

What are we missing?

Also, the limbs numbers are,

top 11170
bottom 12220

Never seen these numbers what do they mean?



Thanks Hutch:cool:

whats the brace height hutch? when you made my cables it tood a good 7 full twists on my cables to get my brace height back to 7 inches. and then a turn and a half on the limb bolts ton get it back to 63 pounds. i would twist the cables a bit more if it were me, but thats just me. any way to measure the old set?

Hutch,
Those numbers probably are the lot #'s. The Limb deflection numbers for a 70# Silencer or FC 400 should be a 4HP and will yield anywhere from 68.5-71#'s max draw weight, depending on how you measure the string and cable lengths. I always measure and set my lengths under 100#'s tension and will usually be within a 1/2# either way of marked draw weight with the PowerTuff limbs.

I don't have the bow this is a customer that is emailing me trying to figure it out. So the best he will get is 68#

As always thanks for the help.
