Default Draw Length-vs-Draw Weight Question

I have Reflex Prowler 60-70lb with 27.5 Draw Length. I have about a 27.25 draw length. My question is..can I expect the draw length to shorten just a little if I crank the bow from 60 to say 65lbs or does draw weight not affect draw length that much?

The draw weight adjustment does not effect draw length at all. However with some cam systems changing the draw length can effect the maximum amount of draw weight you can achieve. Not too many bows are like that anymore though.

Usually cranking the weight down on a Bow will slightly increase the BH and the DL.

To what degree? I can notice a 3/16 of an difference in draw length and have never noticed a difference when going to extremes in draw weight with any of my bows.
