Okay I shoot a 30" draw w/ a bent elbow. My true draw length is around 31"+ and I have shot bows at 31 1/2 inch DL straight arm. With basically any release other then fingers YOU DO NOT (I REPEAT) YOU DO NOT NEED A 36+ inch A2A BOW FOR A 29"+ DRAW LENGTH! (let me say it one more time) YOU DO NOT NEED A 36+ inch A2A BOW FOR A 29"+ DRAW LENGTH! As your draw length goes up the angle of the string becomes more severe and the peep moves further away from your eye. Shooting a 30" draw I was able to shoot down to a 31" bow before I started seeing this as an issue, and even then it was an issue that could easily be overcome w/ a larger diameter peep. I can shoot a 33 - 34" A2A bow just as comfortably as a 40" A2A bow. For hunting there is NEVER a reason to go longer then 36" and that is hitting the very high end of what I would consider a "hunting" bow. Due to modern advancements such as Parallel limbs, vibration dampeners, STS's... etc the need for a longer bow to reduce shock and torque is no longer true. Very very few people need a bow that is 36"+ to shoot accurately in the woods, or even target/3d anymore. The longer the bow the more likely you will bang it on a tree stand, dig it into the ground when kneeling, have issues with drawing while in a tree stand, and have difficulty carrying it and keeping it out of the bushes / trees. If you personally like a very long A2A then that is fine, but please be sure to tell people that it is your OPINION that they need a longer bow as opposed to stating it like it is a fact, because it isn't.
