    Question 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?
    any advice?

    Cable needs twisted some. Check the length from axle to axle.

    Question

    thanks, i put a few twists in and gave it some wax as well. That got rid of the flat spot on the string. Any ideas where my poundage is? the limbs have 2m 13 1/09 on the top limb and 2m 13 12/08 on the bottom, written on the inside that you see when you loosen the bolts off to get to the cable/cam etc.

    put 5 full twist in the cable. that should be just about the 7 pounds your looking for.

    Check the A2A, to make sure they have the right amount of preload, if this checks out you have the wrong limbs for 60# all my 60# Martins have had 3M limbs, but they were not MOAB's.

    Default ata and bh appear fine

    Thanks all, If i put a few more twists in the string, this will make the BH greater? and the ATA shorter? Or would the chnage not be that noticeable?

    The ATA is just shy of 32.5", Brace Hieght are even at aroud 8"
    Is there a list of what the limbs mean? Ie: 2M 3L etc? Surely Martin would not have put the wrong limbs on?

    thanks again

    it would not be the first time that the limbs did not match the sticker on the bow, yes i have seen it before, more then once.

    Sumpin ain't right. Brace height should be closer to 7-7 1/8". A2A sounds close.

    Default Ted,

    do yourself a favor & call Martin Archery... to make sure you have the right limbs. Sorry, but I can't help you on this issue.

    Good Luck,
    Coop

    you said you twisted the string?

    twist the buss cable. not the string. every 6 twist in the string shortens the DL and does not change poundage.

    put 5 twist in the buss cable and take the twist that you put in the string back out.
