    Default Want to Lower Draw Weight on my 2009 Martin Mystic HELP !.

    I have a 2009 Martin Mystic 40-50# Draw Weight

    I need to lower the draw weight to about 25-28# to start with. I have 4H Limbs on it now. I tried a pair of 3M limbs and it only got it down to 35# I have a 28" Draw Length.

    Also, are there easier draw Cams that I can get. I have Furious Dual Cams.
    This bow is beautiful I Love it but I can't draw the weight. I am brand new to the sport haven't even shot my first arrows . I am sick over not being able to shoot this bow. The lowest I can get it down to is 35#

    Someone Please Help !

    Thanks in advance Tere

    If your bow peaked at 50 lbs with the 4H limbs, 3M are about 7 lbs lighter so should peak at 43 lbs, turn the limb bolts out 5 turns ( 3 lbs a turn ) and you should get about 28 lbs draw.

    Thanks for all your help. Sold the Bow today on e-bay. I am getting a new PSE Chaos. Should be a good starter . I Miss the Martin already. It was a beautiful bow.
