I'm 6' 4" and my draw length is 32" to the center of the button. I shoot finger style with a tab and anchor on the side of my jaw. The string is on the side of my nose 1/4" back from the tip. I shoot a XX78 Super Slam at 32 7/8" for hunting. My bow is a Hoyt Pro Tec with 47 3/4" ata and a draw weight of 72 lbs. May not be the fastest arrow in the woods, but when it gets to the target there is no doubt to the outcome.

I am 6'4" and I shoot a 32.5 in draw.

I have a 81 1/4in wing spand and according to most charts I should be at 33in but It feels a little better a half inch shorter.

BigJ12, You made my night. It's great to hear from someone that has an extremely long draw. I was beginning to think I was the only archer left that gets his moneys worth when he buys arrows.

I hear ya!

The down side being finding bows that go to 33in draw length can be frustrating.......Like I always say "It's not a big man's world" nothing fits!

6'3" here and I shot a 31" draw for years. Then I started getting into the technical side of archery and interested in shooting competition. I found out fairly quick that my correct draw length is 29 1/2" and thats what I've been shooting ever since.

5 ft 11 or 6 ft depending on how much I stretch. Wing spand is 74 inches and I shoot a 29 inch draw with a loop and a slight bend in the elbow. A lot of the pros will advocate a straight shooting arm but that's not for me. I find I'm more stable with the slight bend and I get the clearance string to sleave when I shoot. It also gives me some fudge factor when shooting at odd angles from my tree stand.

I'm 5' 11.5" and I shoot 27 1/2 (or maybe it was 27" even). Never known anything different so I can't vouch for better/worse shooting upon change.
