    define "long"? I'm 6'4 and I shoot a 31 inch DL (30 " w/ bent elbow) so I would assume you'd be in that range

    Tried to tell you guys I'm a noob.

    It's a 26" draw with a hoop attached to it.

    If I'm guessing right, which I can be certain that I not... I think he may have gotten about 27.5" total draw out of it?

    He used a 37" string instead and set the cam/pulley/thingees to their max.

    Hell... I'm still confused. I haven't shot it since I was as the shop either, it's been too damn cold out. I'll keep you updated on my hopeless adventure.

    I can pretty much guarantee that at 27.5 your DL is WAY to short.

    I'd say you're right. The price was nice though.

    The bow doesn't belong to me. It was my friend's late father's. Anyway, my buddy said he's got a bigger bow that we'll get set up for me later.

    Got something to shoot for now. Plus... that martin will has a new string and stuff on it, it will fit my buddy just fine... but I don't know which bow of his he'll end up setting up. He has several.

    Hello and this must be new to the archery scene week... On draw length have you had anyone actually measure your wing span? That is what the shop did for me when I was trying to deceide which bow I needed to get. You measure from fingertip to fingertip across then divide by 2.5 and that is pretty close to draw length you need.
