I just got a new heli m and the pro staff adjusted my poundage to 68#. Now when I look at my limb gaps one is cranked with no space between the riser and the other has about an 1/8″ gap. Is this ok or should both be equal??? The tech said he had to do that to get it where it needed to be. Just thought for the bow to have its “synergy” the limbs should be equal.
Yep, snug down both limb bolts, then back off 1/8 to 1/4 turn for max peak draw weight, which is to prevent inadvertently crushing the limbs and to allow freedom of movement in the event the bolts seize in the riser. To adjust for lower DW, back out each bolt the same number of turns.
FWIW, I was always taught to never have the limb bolts differ by more than one turn when making large DW adjustments. Example to lower 5 turns: Back off top limb one turn, back off lower limb two turns, back off top limb two turns, back off lower limb two turns, back off top limb two turns, back off bottom limb one turn. This seems to help preserve the nock height, and avoids any added stresses on the bow … at worst, it is just a good practice.
