Best Answer

A bow sight is adjusted by moving the pin in the direction of arrow impact. If the arrow is high of the spot, move the pin up. If the arrow is hitting left of spot, move pin left. etc. Just rember dont move the sight for the first few arrows, it might just be tou torquing the bow and not the sight.

You bought a used bow the draw length is 30 but you are a 27 can the bow be adjusted for 27?

If it is a compound bow, the type of bow with the pulleys or "wheels" at the ends of the bowlimbs, there should be some way to adjust the draw-length of the bow itself; it may be best to consult someone at an archery shop for the best way to make such an adjustment. When using a Traditional bow -- a recurve or longbow, or other non-compound type -- the only "adjustment" is to simply pull the string back (in this case) to 27 inches; reducing the draw-length in this way also reduces the effective draw-weight of the bow. Also, when using a Traditional bow, and the archer has a longer draw-length than the bow is rated for (i.e., the archer's draw-length is 30 inches, but the bow is rated at 27 inches), it is always advisable to make sure the bow is designed to withstand the longer draw-length. Failure to do so can result in the catastrophic failure of the bow, and possibly serious injury to the archer. Increasing the draw-length of a traditional bow will also increase the effective draw-weight of the bow.

How do you adjust a Pearson renegade bow?

A Pearson Renegade compound bow may be adjusted by tightening the limb bolts. These bolts will help adjust the weight of the bow. The bolts are hexagonal and need to be rotated in the same manner - the top and bottom. The best way to adjust the bow is to take it to a shop that specializes in archery so they can properly adjust the weight.

How do you restring a compound bow?

To re-string a compound bow, you must first get the bow limbs to bend. The easiest way (and the safest) is to place the bow, with the string above the bow (it will look like a smile) in what is called a "bow press". Once the bow is in the press, it is pushed down to bend the limbs ("compressed"), causing the string to go slack; the string is now removed from the cams and the new string is installed. De-compress the bow and remove it from the press.The bow press can be somewhat expensive to purchase, so it may be best to take the bow to an archery shop and have the string replaced there. Due to the amount of pressure required to bend the bow's limbs, as well as the need to keep them bent while changing the string, attempting to restring a compound bow without the proper equipment is definitely not recommended.

Are sight pins factory set on compound bow sights?

I honestly cant say, but it would be wise to double check your sights either way. Every archer has a different draw, a different ancher, different grip, and a different stance. If they are "factory set" then they were probably done when shooting from a "hooter shooter" and not with a person. Also, they could just have set one bow up and measured the pin gap distances and set all the other sights at that. The also could just set them aal spaced evenly, that would be no where in the ball park of sighted in. In conclusion, check and adjust your sight to your type of shooting. It will only benifit you in the end.
