    Default 2011 Exile Draw Length Help Needed

    I’ve been using the F5 module and I measured my ATA draw length to be 28.5” (limbs 1/4 turn out).

    I’d like to try 29”, how do I do that? I believe I have to put in the F7 module and then use one of the pegs? When I put the F7 module in, I get a 30" DL in the current configuration. Do I need a bow press for this? How do I get ” adjustments? Why is there an F6 module if none of the bows use it?

    Also, I have my draw stop near the +, I assume that's 80% let off? The - would be the lowest let off?

    Thank you in advance!

    1.) You are correct.
    2.)
    No, just back the limbs carefully all the way out. Almost all Martins are designed to do this.
    3.) By using the pegs. Just move the string to the other peg with the F7 module installed.

    4.) I'm not sure why Martin did that for 2011.

    5.) The highest let off is towards the + side.

    By the way, Welcome to the Forum.

    Thank you!

    So I move the loop from peg "C" to "D" to shorten the draw 1/2"?

    And if so, which side of "C" do I run the string around (from the perspective of the picture)?

    It should because by moving the string farther in it gets shorter.

    I believe it should go around the bottom.

    Haha, thank you. There was a similar question here: http://martinarchery.com/mtechforum/...ng-Draw-Length but they didn't specify which pegs so I was still lost. I used the bow all season and want to make a few changes before next year. Thanks for the help.

    I'll def second that. It's been fun seeing some new names pop up, especially after I have been pretty new for this year

    New to bow hunting. Got a Martin THreshold Adventure for Christmas and it was setup for me by a local shop. I think the draw lentgh is a little long and I've read the threads on how to change the length by using the different inserts. My question has to do with the "backing off the limbs all the way out". Can someone please explain what this means? Forgive the ignorance.

    I appreciate the assistance.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Backing the limbs out means loosening the limb bolts until the string has no tension on it.
    Feel free to ask any and every question you have. We're all here to help.
