    What difference does it make how long the bolts are?

    I can tell you that they are long enough to completely relax the string, without backing all the way through the barrel nuts.

    Just because there are still threads engaged, doesn't mean that it is safe to shoot the bow that way!

    Back the bolts out one full turn, and measure the draw weight. Repeat that and adjust to fractions of a turn as you get it close.

    If your string is stretched a lot, your draw weight and draw length, are already higher than you might think. If that is the case, you need to take the bow in to a shop for a new string.

    Simon, you do pretty well most of the time. You goofed this one only in that your spelling is off a bit. You do not mean relevations. It's revolutions. Other than that you're spot-on.

    Oops. You are right. Better check words next time before using them.

    Good grades like that mean you either are studying hard or just have a natural sense of the subject. In either case I applaud you on your acheivement. So when do you get the time to shoot a bow?
