    Hoyt Draw Weight Adjustment

    When adjusting the draw weight on Hoyt bows, I know you are supposed to unscrew the pocket locking screws. unfortunately, I can only unscrew 1 of the screws for each pocket. The other one does not budge at all and I MIGHT have stripped one(hopefully not). Is this supposed to happen? Are the two screws for each pocket connected so you only have to unscrew one of them? If not does anyone have any idea whats going on

    Thanks
    Andrew

    Are you sure you are trying to unscrew the right ones?

    Yep Im sure.

    If I cant get it to unscrew, how harmful is it to not unscrew the side bolts before adjustign weihgt? Id assume it would jsut mess up the finish

    If the bolts are tight enough, they may not let the limbs move when you try and adjust them.

    Here is a quote from my 2011 owners manual. It appears that
    you DO NOT loosen those bolts you are trying to loosen. Just
    adjust the weight with the tension screws and be done.

    DRAW WEIGHT
    Weight adjustments can easily be made by turning the weight
    adjustment bolt clockwise to increase weight or counter
    clock-wise to decrease weight. To ensure your tiller stays
    equal always turn the top and bottom adjustment bolts in
    equal amounts.

    Hoyt bows are capable of being reduced to 10 pounds lower
    than the peak weight. For example, a Hoyt bow with a 60 lb.
    max weight can be adjusted to as low as 50 lbs. Do not let out
    or loosen your limb bolts more than 8 turns.

    Note: It is NOT necessary to loosen the dowel screws to
    adjust the weight on any Hoyt bow.

    There are 3 screws to loosen on each limb pocket. The first two are the ones closer to the actually limb bolt, they also use the same size allen wrench. Both sides of this screw should be loosened. The third screw is the one farther away from the limb bolt and it uses a size smaller wrench. Even though there are two screw heads, only one should turn.

    Dowel screws are different than limb pocket screw locks. That is why I asked you if you were trying to unscrew the right ones.

    Well according to my 2011 owners manual, it says to simple tighten or loosen the draw
    weight adjustment screws. It says nothing about limb pocket locking screws.

    Your bow may not have pocket locks screws.
