Limb Mounting Illustration
!! CAUTION !! Mount Limb Accessories Within 2 Inches of Pocket Only

Do not mount accessories, in particular clamping-type vibration dampeners, more than 2 inches from limb pockets. Failure to follow this requirement voids your warranty and will likely damage the limbs. (See illustration.)

 


Full Length Press Illustration
!! CAUTION !! Use Only An Approved Bow Press

See your authorized Bear Archery dealer to make adjustments using a bow press. Approved presses are only those presses that capture the riser as close to the ends as possible and apply pressure to the limbs ONLY between the axle and limb flare. (See illustration.)

 
Press should be capable of adjusting to the riser’s full length.
