Default Adjusting Draw Length on Martin Cheetah


First post here and I just picked up my first compound bow. As the title reads a Martin Cheetah.

I need to change the draw length and am wondering if I can do this without a bow press. I have all the draw cam modules for it.

Thanks in advance.

I am not really familiar with Martin cams but I am pretty sure you can....one way to tell for sure is to look and see if there is any cable or string on the module portion of the cam while at rest? If not, you are good to go. If you are unsure, you can post a closeup pic of the cam and I am sure someone will help you.

The answer to your question is YES. You can change the module without a bow press. There are two set screws holding the module to the cam. Just remove them and pick a module that suits you. Install it and you should be on your way.

In the event that one of the screws is "hidden" behind the limb fork all you need to do is squeeze the cable toward the riser to rotate the cam a bit. Hold it while you remove the screw. If you can't hold the cable in there are two ways I use to accomplish it. You can back the weight down evenly with both limb bolts or just zip-tie the cable to the riser while you make the change. It's a relatively simple undertaking.
