The string angle gets to be a problem for me when the A2A gets below about 35″. I can live with 33″ but 31″ I can’t handle and I’m only a 28½” DL. I can’t imagine what a 31″ A2A must be like for 30″ DL.
Of course, all the bows I shoot have A2A between 40″-43″. Its going to take some getting use to the 33″ A2A on the Drenalin.
Being vertically (5′ 6″) and DL challenged (26.5″), I have to go with the 31″-33″ DL, at least that’s all I have now that I shoot. I might consider a longer ATA for target though, if I could ever afford a new bow.
There was a diagram, while no one wants to admit to it, that shows why a longer ATA bow holds steadier for a person. Not saying a short ATA bow cant be shot well but for the average Joe a longer one will hold better. Wish I could find that pic. But Id say 35″, maybe longer now that they shaved the weight Mathews might make one would shoot awesome for the average guy. Problem is no one wants to admit theyd shoot better with a longer ATA they just dont look as cool. I know, Im one of them I use a bow with an ATA of 30 5/8ths inches.
