    Are you sure you need a 31.5 draw lenght? That just seems really long.

    You may want to have your draw lenght checked out a little more. Like SinGin said that's almost unheard of.:welcome:

    Yes, that's a real odd draw length. Most of us males shoot between 27 and 29 and you run into a few that go farther than 29...
    I think you need to get some advice to be sure your draw length is correct.

    I'm 6' on the money and have a 29" draw, which is a little long when you over analyze pics of me at full draw but it feels comfortable for me so I stick with it.

    31.5" is really long...

    What's your wing span ?

    I don't agree with that at all.... Why in the world would you post an answer like that ? I'm/We're all ears....

    That kind of misinformed advice drives folks away from the sport, not into it.

    Go to a pro shop and do it right. There are really nice bows that are affordable with a ton of adjustability for the particular archer. Genesis being one of those.

    sorry about that i just got mine used and i just thought that if you want a cheap bow buy it used and then you would have extra money to spend on extras:noidea:
