    Default Getting ready to set my bengal back up

    I should have my bengal back on monday from cs. They put new cams and string on it. I want to set it up my self this time.

    The tools I have for bows is very little.
    bow square
    a hutchandson hooter shotter (ty bill for the plains for it)
    a half complete bow press. made the finger but having a hard time finding the correct square stock.

    well here is my first question in what is going to be a long line of questions.
    first question is my dl. My wing spand is 70" from tip to tip of my fingers. I divide that by 2.5. So my dl should be 28". please correct me if iam wrong.
    2nd puting the bow in to spec. Should this be done before or after you move the string to post 3.
    going to buy a bow square to set nock point and buy some cord for loop.
    last question been thinking of shooting with my fingers. The release gets on my nerves. Is it harder to us your fingers verses a release.

    more questions coming soon.

    On the Fury cam setups, the "specs" are original setup on the first peg, so I would set the bow to "spec" before changing to another peg. (it will change the ATA and BH) If somebody has more or different info, please ring in here on this; I'm kinda wingin it from one setup...

    You are correct in your numbers for your draw length, but remember, that is just a ballpark, not your actual draw length. You'll need to tweak it after you set it so that its a comfortable fit for you.

    Default Set up

    Hope you don't mind that I follow your post. My Martin dealer closed so would like to do same. Need to order strings from Hutch, and would like to attempt to install myself and learn how to setup properly.
    Thanks,

    I dont mind. I was hoping to get my bow back today but it is going to be the 5th before it get here. That is what one of the hardest working man at martin told me. "Joel" It will give me more time to read all the bow tuning stuff in the link above.
