    Hello. I am helping a new JOAD student with his bow setup. He has a Mathews Ultra light 50-60# (not sure of the year) that is currently set with too much draw weight. I’ve backed the limb bolts out 3 full turns and it is still too much (approx 55#).

    How many turns can I safely take the limb bolts out?

    It also appears that the draw length is a bit long (29″ bow). How do you adjust the length with 3 different posts on each side of the cam? What do the post numbers correspond to? What is the adjustment range? I don’t know if it is Letter Cam or Pro Cam.

    I’ve searched this forum as well as the web and info on adjusting this bow is extremely limited. Mathews doesn’t list the manual for it on it’s website, either.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum. You can usually take 5 complete turns from the max and be safe. The numbers on the string posts, 1 is the longest and 3 being the shortest and this would be a 1″ move when done the same on both sides. Shortening the draw length will also slightly reduce draw weight as well. Hope this helps and wishing you straight shooting :thumbup

    Thank you for your reply. I’ll take it 2 more turns out the next time I see him. There appears to be plenty of thread left in the riser. I believe the string is on both #3 posts already.

    Thank you again.

    I am new to the website and have done a little research and come up with nothing productive and stumbled upon this site. I am having a similar problem only my draw is about 1-2 inches short. The cam is in the 1 setting which is the longest. Am I going to need to get a new cam and have my bow restrung or is there a way i can get around it? the current draw is about 28-29 I don’t know exactly as the bow once belonged to Dad. The bow is the same bow listed in previous comments. Mathews UltraLight.

    It might be your bow we are discussing. Small world, huh? Yeah, the string is on the #1 posts, the longest it will go, not #3 like I posted earlier. #-o Why did it look like it was too long 2 weeks ago? And we need to fix your creep…
