I've got an older Martin model M-41 Speed Flite, and it's getting harder & harder for me to draw (I'm getting too old). Is it difficult to adjust the draw, and could anybody tell me how to do it ?

Thanks guys !!!

It should be pretty easy, like any compound bow. Take the right size allen wrench (3/16") and turn counterclockwise 1 turn at a time. Do each limb the same. Each turn reduces draw weight by about 3#. Don't turn it down any more than 5 turns, which should be about 15#.

This assumes that the limb bolts are turned all the way in to begin with.

By the way, welcome to the Tech Forum.
