View Full Version : martin tiger DW adjustment

05-20-2009, 04:25 PM
I tried to increase my son's tiger to 20 pounds. When I did the cable was tight, but the string itself was quite loose. I know this was not supposed to happen and would expect a self adjustment, however it did not. I have sent an email already and no response. I would like some help.

You need to put some more twists in your string to shorten it.

The user manual for the Tiger can be downloaded here:

CHANGING DRAW WEIGHT: The Martin Tiger ships at 15# and can be
adjusted to, 10#, 15#, or 20#.

The best way to adjust the Tigers draw weight is to put it in a bow press to compress the limbs. Loosen the slip not on the black string and move it to the appropriate knot. The knot closest to the upper wheel is #10, the center knot is #15, and the knot the furthest away from the upper wheel is the 20# setting.

First the martin tiger 2008 does not have a twisted string. I can adjust the draw weight, the only problem is the string is too lax. I returned it back to the 15 and it is fine. There is nothing in the manual for this. I have read it numerous times.
