Am I the only 6ft guy that.........
 
Has a 27 inch draw length? Most guys I see on this board seem to be in the 29 inch range. I shot a 29 inch draw for years, actually up until about 3 years ago. I started playing around with different draw lengths and found that I actually shoot better with a 27 inch draw. Also, it keeps the string in front of my face, instead of coming over to the side. The down side is to get a good spine, most of my arrows are fairly light, around the 400 gr mark. It also kills the hope of getting good speed, if that is your thing.

I am 5 10 and draw 29". My friend draws 27.5 and when i try to anchor his bow, it doesn't feel right to have my release in front of my lips.

I am 6' feet with a 29.5 inch draw, although I shoot at 29 inches though.

I am 6'3" and my draw length is 30". I dont think I could get comfortable with it in front either.

I am 6'3" and have a 31" draw, but I like to shoot, a draw of 30" with a string loop. If anyone asked what my draw is I always just 30"

I'm 5'8 1/2" and I'm shooting with a 28" draw and I think it's just a tad short soon I';ll get a set of 28.5" mod's and see if that help's.

I'm 6' and shoot 29". Shot 30 for a long time before I actually checked and got fitted right. I shoot a bent elbow and a loop.
