    Question Adjusting Draw Length

    Hey, I purchased a Martin Alien Nitro 3.0 Cam, and I'm new to bowhunting, so I was wondering if anyone could give me some instruction or advice on how to adjust the draw length. I looked at the manual's they have on the Martin website, but they weren't very informative.
    Thank you!

    It's very easy, you just need an allen wrench, unscrew the 2 little screws and more it to the position you need and then use lock tight and tighten them down. What draw length are you, you also use the cam stop for final adjustment. I f you like a solid back wall or a little play that is what you use that for

    I'm currently at 29'' and I would like to move it down to 28''.I attached a picture of my cam-- are you talking about the 2 allen screws? And do I just turn the cams to decrease the distance?

    Yes, Remove the two screws, and the module will be loose. The DL is adjusted in 1/2" increments, so you want to move the module so that the one screw that's in the #5 hole will be in #3.

    Thank you for the help. Just one quick question: It says on their website that that the Draw length for the 2013 Alien Nitro 3 goes from 25.5'' to 30.5''. So shouldn't their be 10 holes for every half inch? I only see 7 labeled holes on my bow? Thank you.

    The Nitro 3 cam has two sizes. The 'L" & 'S'.
    The 'S' cam runs 25.5" to 28.5" draw range.
    The 'L' is 27.5" to 30.5".
    Adjustments are 1/2" per numbered position on the module.

    You want to shorten your draw 1", move both modules down two positions.
