My bow is maxed out at 64 lbs. Would like to turn it down but dont have a scale to see what a turn reduces in draw wt. Any thoughts??

The rule of thumb is 3lbs per ( 360 degree )full resolution. 1 full turn would put you really close to 61lbs.

I has been 3# in the past and I don;t know if Barnesdale limbs are any different, but all my Rytera bows are showing about 1.8# per turn. Round it off and call it 2#. I'm not saying the Martin bows are the same or different but pointing out that the only way to know for sure is to use a scale of some sort.

All of my Rytera's are right at 2# like Barry said, and all but one Martin is 3 pounds per turn. The new Warthog is almost 5 pounds per turn for some reason though.

Was 3 lbs. got some time went to the range and put it on the scale...shot a dz or so arrows. then noticed my bottom limb looks like it is close to breaking. Taking it to the shop tomorrow. could be the finish or could be the limb... This would be the 4th issue I am having with my bow. Cams,limbs,mods,etc.. the list is growing.
