This is what I'm afraid of. I shoot my hinges 2 finger with a very flat/extended release hand resulting in a higher peep settingWith a 29.5 inch draw I couldn’t shoot a triax with a hinge because my peep would be touching the upper loop serving. Even then I had to scrunch to get a site picture. With an index I could make it work...
Cant imagine the V3 would be any better
I’m not one for following conventional “wisdom” just for the sake of it... But I’ve been told never go with a shorter ATA than your draw length and I’m now a believer in that concept. Nothing like having to sell a bow you bought new at a 45% loss 4 months later to help a lesson sink in!This is what I'm afraid of.

Well said. I think that's why i finally find the 27/28 bows so appealing.....33-35ata are certainly more comfortable for most and offer a more stable shooting platform but those bows do not strap to packs well at all nor fit in kayaks and they certainly don't shine crawling through brush or tucking yourself up in cedar/thick oaks. Never killed an animal and thought "thank God my bow was longer or I couldn't have made that shot"I’m a 30” draw and was very surprised how far my kisser was above my loop on my VXR 28. I had my peep as high as possible on initial setup. Only had to serve under it. I get a kick out of all the drama over short bows. My VXR 28 was the backup bow to my primary bow which is 23” ATA. Bottom line is if you don’t want to lug around a big bow, you adapt to the shorter ones. I adapted when bows went from 42” to 36”. Then again when they went to 30”. Then again when I went 23”-28”. You can’t be stuck in your ways.
Hard pill to swallow for most. Too much pride in liking something you want to hate so badly. Seems almost political?Why all the fuss about short bows? I ask anybody that bashes them if they have actually set one up and shot it for a decent amount of time? They grow on you. Short bows shoot just as good as the 33”-35” bows, lot of it is the operator, most people just like me have a dedicated 3D bow and a primary hunting bow, so what’s the problem with a short bow for hunting. I took the 28” triax to the rhinehart r100 and finished top 5 on both courses that weekend shooting against tons of glorified target rigs. I’m a 29.5” draw by the way. How much more bow do you need to shoot an animal? If you don’t like them, move on. The average person is what makes these companies continue to move forward and I can’t think of very many (average bow hunters) that would want to shoot a longer bow when they can shoot a shorter bow with the same accuracy. I just don’t see the advantage
It’s only going to get worse unfortunately. Most of the industry and archery community is plagued by bad form, posture, lack of coaching and equipment that only perpetuates issues in an archers ability to shoot to his or her full potential down the road.I don't care what people shoot but I'm tired of the short bow craze and how the companies cater to it. Those of us who want to hunt with a bow longer than 35"usually have to get target bows. I had a 33" bow for a few years and didn't like it, never could get used to it. 35"is the shortest I can get comfortable with.
I hunted this year with a 38" bow and had no real issues. My one stand had a branch over my shoulder that the bow would bump if I didn't lean forward a bit but it was no big deal to overcome.
I also tied the bow to my pack to drag a deer out and it stuck above the pack less then a foot.
