    If the limb bolts are turned all the way in, bottomed out, will the limb pockets fit flush with the riser or will there still be some space between? The reason I ask is because it looks like I have some space in between mine and bottomed out my draw weight is only 67 pounds and I have 70 pound limbs and the bolts will not turn anymore. Any ideas or suggestions?

    First question, how old is the current string/cable??? 2) if this is on a new bow, check for proper cam rotation. New strings/cables “settle” a bit and poundage can drop.  3)if this bow has a string and cable on it for more than 2-4yrs, check and re-tune to factory specs. As a string/cable age, they creep or get longer and this is what drops poundage and can lead to other issues as well. Personally I like to tighten limb bolts until they stop and then back off 1/4 to 1/2 of a turn. Shoot straight!!

    Bow is a brand new Creed. Came in at the end of January and only has about 40 shots through it. It’s on it’s way back to Mathews for a problem with the cam. I like to do the same thing with the bolts but it looks like they don’t go all the way in. I know on my Z7 if you tighten them all the way down the limb actually contacts the riser but it doesn’t do that on the Creed. Didn’t know if it was different because of the split limbs.
