    I am getting confusing results while researching.

    I have 70LB limb and some say that this can be adjusted all the way down to 38LB.

    I don’t need to go that low, but I want to confirm:

    – Can I set it for 58-60LB range?
    – Is placing the bolt all the way in and doing 4-5 rotations out good rough estimate to reach this range?
    – Is setting it to 40LB really okay for shooting?
    – Can you visually inspect if the limb bolt is out too far? How far out is too far for setting this to 60LB?

    I understand getting it properly measured …etc., but I am just curious why this information is floating around and want to verify.

    Thank you in advance.

    five full turns out from bottomed is all you can go. the bow is designed to give a ten pound range (2lb.per full turn) down from max ,yours being 70-60lbs.

    5 full turns out is obviously not as far as you could go or you would not have this guy here asking these questions. I have seen helium’s and creed’s both set well below their supposed bottom draw weight not sure if it is safe or how to measure it without a DW scale but I’ve seen it.

    This would be for safe shooting of the bow. Obviously, you could keep turning them until they came out.
