Good evening everyone and happy holidays!
Long time lurker, first time poster. I've finally gotten my wife to agree on trying a new hobby, it was between mountain biking and archery and we both agreed on archery. Happy wife, happy life right?
I've been hearing great things about the Samick Sage and the Journey but am no longer sure they are the right bow for me, only because my draw length seems to be a little longer than most. I'm 6'0", 225lbs with 80" fingertip-fingertip which if my math is correct (which it is...I'm half Japanese) would put me at a 32" draw length. I also did the fist against the wall and measured from wall to the corner of my mouth, I measured a little over 31". I was intending on purchasing a 45# Samick Sage but I'm starting to think that I should probably get a 40# since those extra 3-4 inches in draw will add the extra # and wondering if I should get the Journey which is a longer bow at 64". With my draw length would it be dangerous to shoot from a bow that's 62" or should I be looking for a longer bow? Hopefully all this makes sense and I'm asking the right questions. The nearest archery store is an hour away so I've been doing most of my research online. Thanks very much and I'm excited to be a part of this community.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
