Increasing draw length
« on: March 28, 2019, 07:34:36 AM »
New to archery. I bought a Mathews vertix with a 27 1/2 draw length. After shooting the bow for a few months and getting pointers from other archers I realize now that I need a bow with a 28 1/2 in draw length. Is it possible to increase my draw length by an inch or will I need a new bow? Thanks

I would take it in to Riverside Archery and they can help you with it.  I think you need new modules to adjust the length, but I'm not familiar with Matthews bows.

For my last mathews I had to pick up a new cam, I paid $60 on ebay. But I know a lot of the bows now days have adjustable cams, so you can change draw lengths. Bring it to a Mathews shop and they could hook you up. You will also get another 10fps or so out of that inch.

You change the draw length with a module.
 If you run it into a shop that sales mathews most of them will just swap it out for free

I have a monster chill and paid $20 to have the draw reduced from 29.5 to my 27.5, limbs flipped, paper tuned, and had a half hour on the range but that was in Colorado. Bear creek archery for anyone visiting Denver! I think the vertix has the same draw adjustment. Doesn’t require a bow press even, unscrew a module and put the new one in.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Where did you buy the bow? I would think a bow shop selling you a flagship bow at top dollar should get the specs right before they send you out the door. Take it back and get it adjusted to the correct specs.  :twocents:

Very simple screw on module adapter is all it is.  No press and no mechanical skill needed.  That said, if the whole new to archery thing has you nervous, take it into a shop and maybe find a way to pick up a few shooting tip while you're there.

Good choice with the Mathews. Easy module swap!!!
