Find Your True Draw Length Key to Bow BuyingFind Your True Draw Length Key to Bow Buying

The most important decision when buying a bow is getting the right draw length. Without the proper knowledge and some expert advice, the novice ñ and even some experienced archers ñ has made disastrous mistakes.

Knowing your true draw length is as important to your shooting success as knowing your shoe size is to your walking comfort. When the shoe doesnít fit, you feel miserable until you change it; same goes with an improperly fitted bow.

The most accurate method of measuring true draw length is to draw the bow of a friend who is about the same arm length as you. You must consider whether or not you plan to shoot the same style as your friend, i.e., with a release aid or fingers only. Release aids generally act as an extension of your fingers and cause the string to be drawn a shorter distance than when drawn using a finger tab. This difference can be as much as two inches.
