    ??? Hoyt UltraTec draw weight

    How low can I adjust the draw weight on a 2004 Hoyt UltraTec with 60# XT3000 limbs and "C" cams (27-29 1/2 draw)? Is their a maxium number of turns I can back the limb bolts out, after bottomed out, and then determine the minium draw weight?

    Regards

    Hoyt says never back out more than 10 rotations.
    The only way to know (for sure) what you exact weight is to use a bow scale.

    Minimum weight

    According to my dealer, the Hoyts can go down 15 lbs. They advertise a 10 lb range. He says that is because many people would order the 60 lb (as an example) and turn it down to 45 lbs and then complain about the performance. As you know, or may have read on the forums, most bows perform best closest to their peak weight. By stating a 10 lb range Hoyt assuures themselves that most of their bows are shot at a poundage that give good performance.

    The Hoyt rep. that brought to new 05's to our shop had mostly 70 lb bows. I was able to pull them ok, so I had our local dealer check them. Most were set to 45 lbs. So you can take it down 15 lbs, but I may not perform the best.

    DO NOT SHOOT backed out 10 turns ! that is for bowpress only ! (I got this info from javelina about a week ago) 5-6 turns max. to shoot, from bottomed out position, approx. 3 lbs per turn. should get you down to 47-48 lbs. I'd guess.....

    It's pretty close on the 3lbs per turn so 5-6 turns would be max.
