Re: HELP! Draw weight ???

I believe Gator is right, I work as a bow tech at an archery shop. I'd have to see the position of the cam to be sure, but...

Good luck.

Re: HELP! Draw weight ???

If your brace hieght is off your string is the problem. What letter is the cam you just got? Also check the position that the cam is sitting in there should be a hole that is about 1/16" in diameter it should be about a 1/4" in front of the limb, that will tell you it is sittting right, but it can be sitting in there correct and still have the wrong length of strings and cables. It won't be any where close to six inches off though. If it were me I would just put your bow in a press take one end of your string off and untwist it looser 25 times or so. Than take your bus cable off on the bottom and twist it a hair tighter. just watch that hole in relation to your limb when you get it back together and it should start showing a increase in poundage.

Back in 1997 I had a archery shop and sold mathews bows until 2001. The more I think about it there may not be that hole in the cam it may be the max cam that came out the next year that had the hole. But if memory serves right you had to have a longer string but twisting should get you in the ball park.?

No hole. However you can tell that the cam is already rotated forward to far. something changed on those cams though cause you use to not have to route the string over the second and first peg I don't think anyway. It's been along time since I have played with that stuff. how is the draw length?

Don't route the string around peg 2 and 1. Where does 26 inches come up at?
