    bear apprentice weight adjustment question

    I bought my daughter a bear apprentice youth bow.Its supposed to have a 20 pound draw weight range but thers a sticker that says back the limbs out no more than 3 rounds.Does the draw length adjustment affect the weight that much?

    When its all said and done...They`ll be alot more said than done...

    my daughter has one and I am pretty sure you can go at least 6 turns-check your manuel it tells in there somewhere.

    I believe 3 turns is all they want to be backed out on those bolts. It may go out 6 turns, but don't call them if and when that thing comes apart on someone.
    Yes the draw length affect the weight that much. It's kind of decieving the way the tag reads on that bow.

    Yes, draw length effects the poundage on those bows.

    I think the tag on that bow now says 15-60 lbs unless you got the regular apprentice and not the apprentice 2. I've had them down to under 20 lbs at lengths below 21". The limb bolts are very long on that bow so you can go at least 6 turns.

    No you can back them out a good bit. I'm not sure why it says 3 turns. That's what it says on my Anarchy. There isn't any way you would get down to 20 lbs even at 15" with only 3 turns off. You're very safe with 6 turns at most draw lenghts.
