Recurve Draw Length

779 3
I see draw lengths for recurves and am wondering how important/necessary it is to get one that fits you. I am looking at the traditional side now and am a 27" draw length. Thanks.

Draw lengths are not specific on traditional bows. They are all rated at their marked draw weight at 28", but you can draw them as long or short as you'd like.

What you need to know is that most will lose about 2# of draw weight for each inch under the rated 28".
