Default What is your Draw Length?

I ordered my switchback last night, and got all setup. The bow I have been shooting with is 8 years old, and i have grown alot so I had no idea what my "correct" draw length was. The guy had me draw a few bows and decided that I have a 28 1/2" draw length. It definetly felt good, so thats what we went with. I was kind of surprised because I am 6' tall, and thought I had fairly long arms, but apparently not.
Im just curious what everybody else's draw lengths are.

What type of a release do you shoot with?? Now that I think about it, the release won't have any affect on draw lenght will it?

I'm 6ft and have a 27 inch draw........ I shot 29 for half a decade before I started realizing I was way overdrawn..... It is my contention that over 50% of all bowhunters are overdrawn, atleat the ones I know and see
