    Not a great pic but here is the Used MR6 I just got.

    First thing I did was check it over and then into the bow press it went so I could familiarize myself with the dual cam tuning process. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to to get the cams and everything in spec and in sync. Not at all as difficult as I had pictured.

    It came with two sets of strings and cables, both America’s Best String’s. I had not heard of them before but they appear to be fine (8190x material). If anyone has thoughts on them I would love to hear. I usually go with Winners Choice.

    Anyhow, got everything in spec. It is drawing at 61.5 maxed – 1/4 turn. Now I just need to a rest and the right length mods so I get out and fine tune things and shoot it. Thanks for all the help so far. Not a great pic but I will post better ones when I get it all setup.

    Cool bow :thumbup America’s Best are good strings. Probably better than Winners Choice is these days.

    Can anyone tell me how many lbs per turn on the MR6 and the max number of turns the limbs can be backed out.

    I did 5 turns when I pressed it to adjust strings and cables but there was a lot of limb bolt still available and wondering if I should go more in the future.

    I believe it says 9 turns for the Monster for pressing it. To adjust draw weight something like 5 turns from a turned all the way down limb bolt.

    On page 9 near the bottom of it you’ll see the chart referring to the info on pressing the bows.

    Very helpful. I guess I missed that when reading through the post before. Thanks again.
