How to Adjust a Hoyt Bow Draw Weight Compound

Save

Based in Salt Lake City, Utah, Hoyt has been producing archery bows since the early 1900's. Hoyt compound bows are recognized for a combination of quality and craftsmanship; the bows are used by professional and recreational target shooters and bowhunters around the world. Adjusting the draw weight on a Hoyt compound bow allows you to customize the bow to your specific strength and shooting style.

Things You'll Need

  • Bow scale
  • Allen wrenches
  • Use a bow scale to determine the current draw weight on the Hoyt compound bow. This number determines the required increase or decrease in draw weight.

  • Loosen the pocket-locking screws located on both sides of the limb pocket. These special pocket-locking screws are not used on every model. Consult your owner's manual for model-specific information regarding the pocket-locking screws.

  • Turn the weight-adjustment bolt on the top limb-pocket clockwise; this increases the draw weight. Count the number of full and partial revolutions.

  • Turn the weight-adjustment bolt on the top limb-pocket counterclockwise to decrease the draw weight. Count the number of full and partial revolutions.

  • Turn the bottom weight-adjustment bolt the same number of turns as the top. This ensures both limbs have the same amount of resistance.

  • Retighten the pocket-locking screws if necessary.

  • Test the draw weight on the bow scale to determine the final draw-weight measurement.

Tips & Warnings

  • Hoyt recommends making a maximum of 10 revolutions of the limb-weight adjustment bolts.
