    Talking String Tension Adjustment

    I've got an older Martin model M-41 Speed Flite, and it's getting harder & harder for me to draw (I'm getting too old). Is it difficult to adjust the draw, and could anybody tell me how to do it ?

    Thanks guys !!!

    It should be pretty easy, like any compound bow. Take the right size allen wrench (3/16") and turn counterclockwise 1 turn at a time. Do each limb the same. Each turn reduces draw weight by about 3#. Don't turn it down any more than 5 turns, which should be about 15#.

    This assumes that the limb bolts are turned all the way in to begin with.

    By the way, welcome to the Tech Forum.
