Bowtech guardian

406 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  wdriver
I bought a 2007 guardian last year. I am just a beginner but I have been shooting alot over the summer but I was shooting the other day and heard a pop and went inside started checking and one of my limbs was cracked. I just had the limbs replaced today and can hardly draw the bow back. What is different if it is the same limbs and the adjustment is the same? I am thinking its me but something seems very different.

Might be you got 70lb limbs when before you had 60lb, but if that is the case it should not be hard to pull, I think that when the limbs were replaced that your timing is of causing it to be hard to pull, I had the same issue with my Guardian
there is a part on the cam that is shaped like a J, the bottom part of the J should be about 1/8 of an inch from the edge of the limb if this makes sense, may be some one has a picture and can show you if I didn't confuse you.:confused:

bowtech guardian

THey told me when I took it in that it was very badly out of time and he showed how to look at the J that you were just talking about. The bow is in time now but I am just having a really hardtime figuring out why I was having such a hard time drawing back after getting the bow back today. I was really frustrated trying to shoot today.


Thanks for the tips

The cables may have been stretched severely, or the limb bolts may have been backed out before and you didn't notice. A combo of the 2 could make your 70 pounder a 50 pounder. :wink:

It sounds like you got the bow second hand , so who knows what could have happened to it. :sad:

Can you post pics of it? Someone may be able to diagnose a problem that way, if there is something fairly obvious.

still hard to draw?

Is it all fixed now and still hard to draw?
