I've got a bit of a rookie question.

I bought a Martin Saber back in the summer and the shop owner set it at 52# so that I could start to develop the muscle memory required for archery. I've lost track of how many hundreds of arrow's I've flung down range (in my backyard really) What's a good indication of when you can increase your draw weight? I still have 1.5 turns on both limb bolts to max it out at 60#.

i gaurentee you can draw 60 withing 3 weeks.

jack it up a twist every week and draw it 5 times before you go to bed.

A pretty reliable indicator is that when you are practicing you can shoot at least 100 shots and the last one is shot with the same accuracy as the first.

My rule has always been if I can pull the string back ten consecutive times I'm not pulling too much. I'm a hunter so by doing it this way when the weather gets cold or whenever I have ton of clothes on I'll still be able to draw. The older I get the more my poundage comes down and the more I enjoy practice.
