Default Best bow on the market?

I decided this year the year to upgrade to bigger and better things. I was just wondering in your opinion what was the best bow out there. Keep in mind I'm 6'6 so need a long draw length. Thanks!

Ain't no such thing. That's like asking what is the best rifle on the market. You get a bow that YOU think is best. The one that fits you the best. There are many good bow manufacturers out there. Martin, Mathews, Hoyt, PSE, G5 etc.
Try as many as you can then decide.

Default Do you shoot archery?

At 6'6", I'd just be worrying about getting a bow that fit my draw length.

I agree with the other posts. I am in the same boat, tall and long draw length. Your possibilities are very limited but most of the bigger companies make a model that will go to 31.5,32 or longer draw length. You need to shoot a few if possible and buy the one that feels comfortable.

Look at the Bowtech Insanity CPXL for longer draw lengths.
