Here's a simple test. Put your arms out to the side and measure finger tip to finger tip in inches. Now divide by 2.5. This will give you an approximate length in inches.

Default Draw Length

This is a good formula but if you can get to a proshop and have them measure you it would be much better. Or you could post some pictures of yourself at full draw with an arrow nocked with differerent Draw lengths and let us see your form. Good luck and to the forum. Anytime you need some help just let us know.
