    I just picked up a used Switchback (still love this bow) but the arrows I have are 400 spine and the bow is maxed at 70#.  My arrows are 29″ draw length is 28″ and 100 grain tips.  I am thinking I need to drop the weight down into the low 60′s and possibly shave an inch or so off my arrows to get back in the range I need to be.  Other problem is I don’t have a draw weight scale handy.  Is there a set number of turns that will get me close?  I have heard anywhere from 2 1/2# to 5# per turn and a search on here indicated 5 full turns for a Drenalin to drop 10 lbs. but I haven’t found anything on the Switchback.  Any advice?

    Five turns out is the maximum and will approximately drop it down ten pounds.

    2 1/2 turns on each limb should put you right at 60. I just did mine the other night. Easiest way to do it is get a luggage scale from walmart. It costs $7.
