    Congrats. Hopefully you recieved a Martin hand manual. The cams have mods that can be moved to change the draw length. The mods have two screws each. Remove screws and move mods to next lower number - both mods. Each number represents 1/2".

    Also, you will have to reset the positive draw stop. After you have moved the mods loosen the draw stop (remove rubber cover/see allen head bolt) and move back. Have someone with you. Draw bow, not overly, and have your friend slide the draw stop to the limb and snug bolt. Ease down. I mark the cam at the barrel of the draw stop with a sharp lead pencil. Loosen allen bolt and move draw stop back the width of the pencil line and tighten - this should allow for the thickness of the rubber cover. Each person different you can then move the draw stop that best suits you. Note; moving the draw stop over/past the pencil line will shorten draw length to some degree and lessen the length of the valley.

    Wink cam module adjustment

    Just a tip, after adjusting your cam modules to the proper setting use removable loctite on your module screws. This will save you grief down the road and keep your modules tight for years to come.

    Great tip. If you don't have a thread locking agent, E.G. Loctite, string wax applied to the threads and heads of the screws works well too.
