    Not long enough. I can live with the brace height, but the a-a is too short. I want to see around 37 1/2" to 38".

    If you're not planning on hunting, but just target and 3D why limit your options to just droppers or prongs. Try looking at blade rests such as the Trophy Taker Spring Steel. You'll most likely...
