Default The Big Three & 32" Draw

Protec 2000 spiral cam, Pro 40 or Conquest 3? Which would you buy and why?
32" draw stinks because Im so limited as to what I can get.[:'(]

Some setups for some shooters actually shoot better with the draw-length 1/2" to 1" shorter than the person's measured draw-length. Add a string loop and use a long-barreled release; as long as the bow cams complete a full rollover and you can obtain a solid anchor, you should be fine.

I set all my compounds 1" shorter than my measured draw and I use a loop and long-barreled release. I like the solid wall I hit when at full draw.

See if the pro shop will setup a bow of your choice with above stated setup to determine how it would feel for you. If the shop won't do it, take your business elsewhere.

Try having a 33" draw, bucko! If it weren't for aluminum arrows, and a few brands of carbons, I couldn't even get ARROWS long enough!

Don't forget Martin and Onieda. They also have offerings in extra long draws. I've been a Hoyt man for the past 20 years, but I think I'm going to look elsewhere next time I'm in the market for a new compound.

I not very fond of the Tec riser on my ProTec (the brace usually hits my wrist bone when I shoot) and I'm not too wild about split limb bows anyway. The bow shoots great and, other than it's annoying tendency to hit my wrist, I've had no problems with it. I simply do not like the design now that I've lived with it for a couple of years.

Of the ones you're interested in, my pick would be the Pro 40, because it's available as a dual cam. (I've not had good luck with longer axle to axle lengths in single cam bows.) In Martin, I'd be looking at the Sceptor or Cougar Elite, maybe the Phantom as well, with Nitrous cams.

Also check out Darton Tundra Extreme. That's what I went with.

The darton tundra goes to 32 3/8's Id check it first

The conquest has allways been a good choice for the long draw archer , dont overlook it .

I see the bowtech pro40 goes to 32"s with the new liberty cam , might be worth a check out .

Id check them in that order , but thats me , I dont like hoyts grip , so would not consider it . I love darton bows , but if you get either a darton or a mathews you will have to get aftermarket strings and cabels . The bowtechs come with good strings and cabels so thats a plus .

Yes the Tundra Extreme standard module 75% let off will go to 32 3/8, the 65% optional module will go to 31 7/8" draw. Currently I am shooting the 65% module at 31 5/8 inch draw.

I'd get the Pro 40. With a 32" draw, speed would be good. The long brace height would make it very forgiving considering your long draw length. And the P40 is very accurate, as well as smooth shooting.

I've shot the Conquest since 1998, at 32 inches. Its modest 7" brace generates exceptional power and forgiveness at my low, (62) pound draw weight. I'd buy a Conquest 3 if I could justify it... but I can't, as this bow still works that well.
