Default Bear TRX hard to adjust draw weight

meaning I can't do it.... The shop put it on the scale and said it was at 70, which is fine by me, but I cant adjust it either way, down or up... doesnt matter I suppose, but am I missing something?

Most likely, you are missing something. Get on the Bear archery website and ask their technical folks what is going on. If anybody in the world can answer your question, they can!

Chances are there is some kind of a locking mechinism for the limb bolts on this bow. I am not familiar with this brand of bow, so I'm not sure. My darton had set screws on the inside of the riser under the limb bolts. This keeps them from vibriting loose I guess. My Bowtech has some bolts on the side of limbs that lock down the limb pockets after you adjus the limbs. Maybe your bow has something simular and that's why the limbs bolts don't turn.

Are you saying you had it at a shop and they couldn't get the bolts to turn either? That sounds a bit odd to me. Look the bow over well form some sort of locking mechinism on it. Either next to the limbs, or the opposite end of the limb bolts.

Good luck,

I do not believe you are missing anything. I work on the North American Archery Group bows quite a bit...TRX included....and can say that they have some of the most difficult to turn limb bolts out there. I do not think they lubricate them or lubricate them as much as some of the other bow manufacturers.
