    If that’s true though, then Steve’s draw would still be round 35″… :whistle :p :^O

    What I’d really like to see is an extemporary survey of real draw length to perceived draw length. :D

    I think it was Steve Gibbs that said years ago that something like 80% of the students started with a draw length that was too long, and only 10% had their correct draw length. If it wasn’t Steve, then it was Bernie Pellerite.

    It was Bernie, I read it in “Idiot Proof Archery” and the figures are right from what I remember. It is scary how many people I see on the tournament line with a draw length that is too long.

    For anyone who hasn’t read it “Idiot Proof Archery” comes highly recomended :thumbup
