I want to back the weight off on a blacknight from 70 lbs to 65lbs. How many turns should i do on the limb bolts, and how much leeway do i have before they come out!
Thanks.

Do you have a bow scale? You'd have to use one to be sure. I couldn't tell you how many pounds each turn will add or subtract, but I can tell you that BowTech warns against going farther than 2 1/2 turns from fully seated. You can download their manual from their site.

good luck

Generally, one turn will equal roughly 2-3 lbs of draw weight, I'd start with 1 1/2 turns and see where that puts you. You should be able to back your bolts out at least 4-5 full turns without any problems. Most shops will tell you 3-4 full turns to be on the safe side.

I wouldnt consider backing mine out more than 1 turn at a time and then checking the weight :wink:

When the say 2 1/2 MAX...They are not just picking a number :rolleyes:
