Question Best option with 32" draw length?

My height/reach leave my bow selection opportunity quite limited. I need 32" draw, and a quality bow. I'm partial to Hoyt, but open to educated suggestions. I was leaning towards the Vector 35 Long Draw. Any help out there? If you can include pricing (if known) that will help.

Here is a Hoyt that goes to 32".

I have the Maxxis in 29.5 which is my exact draw length.

You and I must both be related somehow ... to the Neanderthals!

Bear Anarchy can go to 31 1/2" if you can work with that.
I have one and it is one sweet bow.

My personal favorite is the Bowtech insanity CPXL. It's really the only bow I got excited about for 2012. A close second is Elite Tour.

The Hoyt vector 35 and carbon matrix don't draw nearly as smooth as the Bowtech and elite bows.

The numbers I saw said the Hoyt Vector 35 and CRX 35 only went to 31" and go for around $800 and $600 respectively. The Vector is smoother than the CRX with less vibration.

I don't know the specs of the Hoyt Carbon Element right off because the $1200-$1300 price tag scared me off before I looked them up - it shoots really nice though.

The BowTech Insanity CPXL goes to 32" but you will likely not find it much under $1000. This is the bow I originally expected to end up with, because my old bow had a 31" draw and I always wanted a BowTech. It just didn't have that smooth draw I was looking for, the tiny handle didn't fit my big hands comfortably, and had an extremely noticable vibration (almost like a tuning fork) after the shot. I'm sure these things could be overcome with add-ons, but it didn't sit right for me.

The Mathews Z9 will do 32" and I've seen it for $769. It's a little slower than many of the others, but has a huge brace height to add forgiveness for that long draw. It's absolutely the smoothest draw you will find. Even with a 312fps IBO, your draw length will kick that up to be shooting 320s with real arrows and a loaded bow.

The Mathews MR8 can go up to 33" and can be found for $859. It still has an 8" brace, so a pretty good compromise if you are a speed junky.

I'm not familiar with the specs for the current PSE and Bear models - I just wasn't a fan of how they felt.

They're all great bows. You may have your own brand preferences and will likely have a different set of charactistics that are important to you. Go to your local pro shop and shoot them for yourself.
