Thread: Draw weight adjustment?

  1. #1

    Default Draw weight adjustment?

    Is there a rough estimate of the weight change vs. each turn or half turn of the adjustment screws for various bows?

    thanks.

    Default What kind?

    Knowing what kind of bow might help. Some companies have on-line owners manuals. Mine came with none but I found it on-line.

    My BowTech claims "about" 3-4 pounds per turn. My Pearson claimed about 5.

    Default Hoyt Intruder

    It's a 60-70 lb hoyt intruder. I checked their web site and the manuals did not say.
    I also have a wing compound bow I got new in 1975 but I don't remember on it.

    Default Searched Too

    I searched too. Nothing on your bow anywheres. Checked several owners manuals for several years and they do not say anything. They just say maximun10 turns.

    Do you have a bow scale and can test it?

    Default No bow scale

    Thanks for your help. I stopped by backcountry archery today and they were closed. I'm going to stop back by there tomorrow. I haven't shot in years. It should be fun.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Default Weight Scale

    If you have a weight scale like the ones that are used for weighing game. You just put the knock loop in the hook and pull down. Turn the screw and weigh again. That will give you an exact weight and let off pounds.

    Most bows are 3lb's for 1 full turn. This is just an estimate. All bows are different. Same make same model might be different. One might be 2 1/2 lbs per turn one might be 3 lbs I really haven't seen very many bows go above 3 lbs a turn. My new Mathews is about 2 1/2.

    3 LB is about the avg. for most bows.
