    Just been checking their calculator out. That is a great sight, and YES...it does seem to be spot on.

    Running my Silencer over the croney again last night (in better light) and I'm coming up with a pretty solid 285. Thought this might be a little on the slow side, but who knows. Any guesses out there? Also, I got to looking. Martin shows the 60# bows to have 3M limbs, but mine are marked 3H. Any idea what difference this makes? I've got my limbs cranked all the way down and then the nut backed off 1/8 a turn from bottomed out. I've used two different scales and only come up with 55# draw weight. Is that 1/8 turn worth 5# of weight??? I wouldn't think so. What are your thoughts.

    (374gr arrows, 29" draw, 20gr on string (peep, D loop, nock))

    Every full turn of top and bottom limb bolts together should be 3lbs, Thus giving you 15lbs of variance. 5 full turns out of each bolt, the bow should read 45lbs. 5 full turns in your bow should read 60lbs. The reason the bow does not reach 60lbs, is the cable needs to be twisted 5 to 7 turns or more. What is your ATA of the bow, I would think it is longer than it is suppose to be. Also if the ATA is long and you twist your cable to get it right, this will make your draw length a tad longer so you might have to twist your string.

    Another thing is the bow should read (max out) 63lbs. What I would do it back out the limb bolts equally till the bolt ends are seen in the barrel nuts. This should be loose enough to take the bottom end of your cable off and twist it. I would do 5 twists at first than more it necessary. At 60lbs you should see the numbers your looking for.
