you must be a real big dude, for a 32 inch draw length......

the Switchback LD would be a good choice......

How tall are you? A wingspan measurement will tell you reasonably close to what you should be. We have found that there are exception on the really long side. Take the wingspan measurement and divide by 2.5

Finger-tip to Finger-tip across your chest, don't let the tape bend.

Ryan. Like Chris said, double check your dl to make sure you're 32". If you are, and want a pretty short bow for treestand hunting, look at the Fred Bear Element, Parkers, and the new Pearson Z series bows.

I've got a customer that is 7' 1"
We put him in a Switchback LD at 32" with a loop. I told him he was longer than 32" but he said he had shot 32" since he was 16 years old
It is a bit short but it is workable for him.

If your wingspan is the same as your height, it's 32"

If you want a good shooter of all of the CSS Bows Get the 41 ATA Challenger. With your draw length and the big brace you will have at the ATA that bow will shoot ticks off of a deer and have really good speed. Call The Factory @ 1-304-302-2697. Chuck and Peggy are good people and can offer you a little more advise on a choice. They truely build custom shooting systems. I have been shooting for them for 4 years now and love every one of their bows. Hope this helps.

Chuck

I understand your frustration. Im 6'5" and shoot a 31.5" D.L. and thats hard enough to find. Some of your options if you are 32" are limited and if your longer its even harder. Bowtech has the Commander that goes to 32",APA Inovations has one I think that goes to 33" among the others that have been mentioned. Good luck I feel your pain. The good thing is you pick up about 10fps for every inch of D.L.. If you are looking for used Bowtech has the Old Glory from 06 that has mods that adjust to 32". It has to be an 06 though the older ones have to have new cams. If you are looking for a new inexpensive one check out the Browning Vapor its around $550 and goes to 32". Im always looking on E-bay for stuff in my draw length and its slim pickins. Good luck and welcome to the sport. Im currently shooting a Ross 337 and a Hoyt Pro-Elite.
