MOAB Poundage not right and flat string
I recently purchased a new 09 Moab 45-60lb.
It is set at 29" draw.
I noticed the idler lean and twisted the yolk string a couple of times to straighten. No Problems.
I had the bow set on 50lb. I went to increase it and discovered i only had 1 turn on each limb left until full poundage (about 53lb)
Where is the other 7lbs?
I also note that the string in the idler wheel looks flat not round?
Got brace height right at last
OK, thanks again guys, I got the brace height right (Was measuring wrong)
I'll take the string off again and put a few more twists in. I straightend the string and then added about 12 twists earlier today. Poundage is 53. So i am back were i started. I'll put a few more in later( 5 or 6).
Then check brace height and poundage again.
Hopefully with positive results :-)
string twisted another dozen
hmmm.. twisted string up about 6 turns more, still 53lb.
Twisted up another 6, brace height is 180mm(just over 7").
My nocking point has moved up nearly half inch.
The string last time i twisted it, started twisting over it'self. I have also noticed the top limb is getting harder to wind in compered to the bottom limb(may have always been the case but i am getting sore hands for winding in/out repeatedly )
All this effort and i have not gained any poundage?
So i dont know if it is safe to keep twisting the string or if indeed i have the wrong limbs. ??
Anyone from Martin able to reply?
