my father in law and i recently bow a new parker compound mag bow and we both can not pull it back. it says its set at 70 pounds but we think the person who set it up didn't do it right, so how can we set it so we can pull it back more easily? we want to drop it to 60 pounds cause pulling a bow back should not be this tough

  1. Mens Jewelry

    On the base of the limbs, there is a bolt. You will need to loosen it with a allen wrench. Make sure you do each bolt the same amount/

  2. Makeup Discounters

    twitch is right but i suggest having a bow shop do it for you. they usually don’t even charge for it and it will be done right. the last thing you want is the bow to break while drawing it.

  3. Make Money From Home

    GoJets is correct…. If the Hex Head adjustments don’t match exactly turn for turn, there is a chance your compound Bow will fall apart/break when you try to shoot it. Have a professional do it at a local Archery shop or a place like Bass Pro Shops or Cabela’s, Academy Sports, etc. They will not only be able to adjust it, but they can actually check the draw weight after adjustment is done, something that you can’t do at home….

    *Most Compound Bows can only be adjusted + or minus 10 lbs MAX….

  4. Hair Growth Products

    best bet take it to a different pro shop then where you bought it …if they did screw it up you don’t want to go back there and risk it really getting messsed up.
