Hey guys i just recently purchased a martin bengal. The draw length is a tad to long. Is this one of the setups where i can adjust the DL without a bow press?

Yes, you can change the module without a bow press. Just remove the set screws holding the present module and replace it with the next lower number. This will shorten it one inch. If you only need 1/2" then turn the limb bolts out evenly till you can remove the string from the cam. Watch the limb bolt through the side of the barrel nut till you can see daylight and this should be enough (about 11 turns). Move the end loop to the #2 post and put it back together.

Note that moving to the #2 post will move your nocking point lower along with a kisser or peep if you are using them. Measure where they are at before you change anything so you can relocate them later. Also be aware that doing it this way lowers the peak draw weight of the bow by about 5#. Don't get all worked up about a 5# loss. It's much better to have the bow fit you well than worry about a few pounds. Afterall, it's just a number.

You will probably have to check and/or retune the bow just a little bit.
