My ATA on my new Onza 3 is slightly more than 33.5, What cables or strings do I move to shorten that measurement and which way??, thanks/buckslayr

First, check the draw weight. If at listed max there should be no reason to adjust ata.
If all else okay and poundage down, then you adjust (twist) both cables a equal amount.

Beings ata is supposed to be 33 1/4" I'd call Martin. At 33 1/2" and draw weight to be 60 pounds the excess 6 pounds say you have the wrong limbs or your scale is a ways off... If the draw weight doesn't bother you, then shoot it. When I buy a bow, order or off the rack, I want draw to be what it is, but will except a pound or two over.

What's the brace height? If it's short it might be you need to add about 15 twists to the string. That would drop the weight while shortening the a2a at the same time. Bear in mind this will change the draw length--make it shorter by about 1/4" or so.

Remove the string and cables and measure them, then adjust to factory specs. You should have no more than about 1-2#'s over the marked draw weight. Whats the limb deflection number ?

I defiantly agree with archerx7 remove them and put them at specs.

I missed on the brace height... Still, 14 twists on the bow string and a new bow? Something isn't right.....
