    Increasing Bowtech Allegiance draw weight

    Anyone help or offer advice. Have a 2008 Bowtech Allegiance currently only drawing 35-37lbs, but need to up this to nearer max of 50lbs. How is this done and what effect does this have on the strings? Do I have to adjust the string length on the upper cam to compensate in any way? Will I need any special equipment?
    Thanks.

    There are limb bolts that will wind down the limbs top and bottom. Before doing that, there are four of locking screws on one side of the riser, two near each end. They need to be loosened a turn or so. The screws fit through slots, a longer one and shorter one at each end. You need two Allen keys, sorry I don't know the sizes.
    The strings will be under more tension, but nothing else changes.

    So, no need for bowpress, string removal or drawlength adjustment then?

    After you loosen the locking screws and wind in the limbs to raise the draw weight, the limbs will be bent a little more than they were. I guess, that bending will make some very small changes to the string and cables. However, I doubt that it would be possible to measure those changes with a tape measure or similar, as the changes are so small.I forgot to say," tighten the locking screws when you have set the weight as you want bit".
    The bow press would be used to take off strings and cables if you wanted to twist them up. Sometimes, archers go slightly higher than max weight setting( or make small draw length changes) using that method.

    Do not 'bottom' the limb bolts. If the limb bolts screw in as far as they can go then unwind them 1/4 of a turn.
    just point,pull & squeeze the trigger

    That sounds important to know,Jerry. What's the reasoning behind that?

    The first thing you should do is go to the Bowtech site and download the manual. Bowtech Archery
