    I must say, I feel much more comfortable with a 1" too long DL than a 1" too short. I feel cramped up and cannot anchor right with it too short.:noidea: :noidea: But thats just me.

    I'm actually kind of like you in that regard. I do prefer too long than too short.

    dont mathews cams tend to run a little long? The xt I just got is 27" and it feels about 1/2" longer than my guardian did at 27". It still feels really good so I think I am going to leave it that way.

    The main thing you are going to lose with a shorter draw is speed. If all things are the same someone with a 29" draw will always be faster than someone with a 27" draw.
