    Default My 09 Moab pro arrived today:)

    I am really happy with it apart from a small misslead detail the seller omitted to mention. Draw length is perfect at 26'' on the M2 cam. However, questions were asked about the draw weight. Seller told me it was set to 45pounds. Humm, have the bow infront of me & the information plate is stating 55-70 pounds. When i draw the bow it feels definitly like 55 pounds.

    Am I correct in assuming that this bow is only adjustable between 55-70 or can it be lowered below the 55 pound threshold? If it cannot no problem I will just have to muscle up a little.

    There is already a 5mm gap between the riser & the limbs which is telling me that it may well be already set to its minimum. What is the max length that this gap can be set to before I run out of bolt thread??

    All advise welcomed

    Regards

    Wil

    The general Martin rule that I know is 5 turns out from fully seated limb bolts. There may be exceptions but that is a common theme amongst Martin bows. It should be more than 5 mm since my son's bow is 5 turns out and looks more than that.

    Or you could run bolth limb bolts in, then back them out equally 5 turns ( no more than 2 turns at a time) and see where you end up. I believe barry used to shoot his bow lighter than the low end spec, with no ill effect, besides a loss of efficiency. Id ask him about it first though.

    Ok thanks for the info. 2 further questions.

    I am correct in assuming 'a turn' refers to one full 360 revolution?

    The limb bolt must remain threaded to both sides of the barrel retaining nut of if they are too short to get the bolts Justin mentioned which are longer therefore will have more adjustment?
