Unless you change your anchor point or other shooting form variables, your draw length should not change from one bow to another. Draw length is best measured using a recurve. A bow's draw length obviously can change.

^^^^ THIS ^^^^. I agree! Lots of people out there shooting bows that don't fit, I see it all the time. Best to go to a reputable bow shop and let them measure your draw length and get you set up. Mike

thanks for all the advice. I went to local bow shop and had a few twists put in string reduced draw length and put a smaller D loop on. It feels really good and I'm shooting tight groups.

Thank You all
