27 inch wow thats short for a 6 ft guy as long as its comfortable iam 6 ft and some change i have a 29.5 inch draw but i shoot 29 inch.. i played around with differnt draw lengths from 28 - 30 and the most consistincy was 29 inch.. there are alot of bow hunters that shoot way to long of a draw length...

6' 4" w/ a 29 inch draw string loop, release and good bend in the straight arm. I guess it could depend on your shooting mechanics to shorten of lenghten your draw. I do the bent arm to keep from having to worry about coatsleeve and forearm hits when releasing.

I'm 5'10" and shoot 29.5" draw. I dropped it a half inch from the last bow I had. It feels a bit better losing only a half inch. I tried with it a little shorter even at the shop, it that felt real bad.

6'0" and I use a 29.5" draw and I've also been accused of long arms. I tried 29" but it will not work.

I'm 6'4",and I've been shooting at 30in.for years.I've always had to shoot with a big bend in my elbow,plus,I had to "cock" my head a little.I know this sounds wierd,but thats the way I shot.
Len(in Maryland) is helping me out.He feels that I'm really a 31.5 draw,so he's going to set up an Old Glory for me...Bob

I am 6'1" I shot for years with a 30" draw without a string loop. My local pro work with me last spring. He set up my new bow with a 29" draw and a string loop. I shoot more consistant groups with the shorter draw.

I'm 6'3" and shoot a 28" draw length. I shoot bare fingers though and anchor at the corner of my nose and feel more comfortable slightly leaning forward into my shot rather than all stretched back.

i'm 6' and draw 28" but would probably be more comfortable with 27". but i've been overdrawing so long i'm used to it.
