Question: What is draw weight and draw length ?

Answer: Draw weight is the amount of force it takes to pull the string to a specific length.  For example: 30 pounds at 28 inches, means it takes 30 pounds of force to pull the string to 28 inches.   The higher the pounds, the stronger the bow.


Question: How do I determine my draw length ?

Answer: Find a yard or meter stick. Then rest one end of the stick on your chest, then with the yardstick between your hands extend both hands fully as far as you can. Finally, have someone see where your finger tips end up, and then add an inch.  This is your draw length.
