    Default 2010 Bengal: How hard is it to change draw length?

    I was wondering if it is something I can do myself, or do I need a bow press? Or is it just moving the stopper?

    Thanks,

    SG

    Stéphane, it is not necessary to have a bow press. And yes you can do it your self. Back both limb bolts out, but do them equally. Two turns for one two turns for the other. Till you can see the end in the barrel nut on the side. Or till the string is loose. The module can be changed easily at this point.

    Also Stéphane your draw stop will need to be adjusted. Loosen it lightly draw back the bow with the help of another person have them adjust it to the limb.

    Thanks Hutch, I might just give it a try. The reason I want to change it is because when I draw, I need to move my head forward to hook my thumb underneath my earlobe. I was hoping to just move the stopper would be enough, but he you say I need to replace the module, then so be it.

    Stéphane, did you get modules with your Bengal and what is the # of the one you have in your Bengal?

    Yes, it's #3. I gotta say, though, looking at them doesn't help with understanding the system.

    Stéphane, is your draw stop all the way to the top of the cam or bottom or in the middle some where?. You might not have to change your module, if you have some adjustment.
    According to the chart your a f3 @27' draw.
    Bengal f1/ 25"/ f2 26" /f3 27" /f4 28"/ f5 29"/ f6 29.5"/ f7 30"

    Here's a picture of my stopper.

    I thought I was 26.5 draw length, but because I had to bring my head forward after I drew the bow made me question myself too. Am I doing something wrong?

    I am amazed how grouped my shots are with so little practice. Very forgiving those releases, aren't they.

    Stéphane, you're smart the picture says it all. All you have to do it is pull the boot off your draw stop, than loosen the bolt. Move it towards the + sign a little at a time until it is comfortable at full draw.

    Stéphane, by the way the manual shows how to do this. If you don't have one go to the web site and down load
