I was wondering which one would be best my draw length or does it even matter? I am shooting a 737 for 3d and hunting but was thinking of getting into field archery next year, I,m left handed so I dont get to try to many bows,especially Hoyts since theres no dealer close by. It doesnt have to be an ultraelite so any opinion would be apreciated.

Find one on here with 3000 limbs and spirals or better yet if you can fing it with command+ cams.

I have had the U/E in both an XT 3500 w/c2 cams. And XT 3000 w/Cam and 1/2 plus.
I am also 27'' draw. I think the XT 3000 limbs will suit you fine, with either cam. I also have an Ultratec with XT 2000s, I like the 3000s considerably better.

I had an UltraElite w/ 3000 limbs and Cam 1/2 cams and shot it at a 27" draw. I miss that bow dearly, wish I had never sold it. At 27" you'll want B base cams for 3000 limbs, at least that's what mine had, it was a 2004, C's would probably work too, but you'll be shooting on the lower end of the module vs. the upper end on the B's.

I dont know what an Ultraelite with xt2000 limbs is gonna do that a 737 wont except make you lace your arrow through the riser. If you want to shoot a longer a2a bow, than a xt3000 set would be the way to go.

UltraElite

So I have my UE now for over six months, I really love the bow. I didn't really get a chance to shoot a 737 until after I purchased the UE.

I also run a shorter draw than most also. I have mine at the lowest module setting which is at 25.5 inches, got it with the XT 3000 limbs. Really love it but wish I could have shot the 737 before I bought the UE, both are excellent bows.

If I would have had a chance to shoot the 737 against the UE, it would have been a really tough decision. I'm glad I got the UE, but man wish I could have shot the 737. Both good bows, can't go wrong with either.

I was wondering which one would be best my draw length or does it even matter? I am shooting a 737 for 3d and hunting but was thinking of getting into field archery next year, I,m left handed so I dont get to try to many bows,especially Hoyts since theres no dealer close by.

Michael Braden did a talk back when he was a Hoyt Pro and he suggested that after a certain draw length, you should move to 3000 limbs. I don't remember exactly what the cutoff number was, but the 2000 limbs would be fine for you....that much I do remember. Also, you will give up speed with 3000 limbs that you might not feel is important now, but down the road..........

It all has to do with having a correctly sized bow for you and for it to be comfortable to anchor. If YOUR not sure, the best advice I could offer would be for you to draw bows with the 2 different limbs and see how they feel. Which 1 is easier to find an anchor with? Which 1 feels more natural....like it is an extension of you? You want to be positive of your choice before you throw down that much cash for a new bow, so take your time and make the right decision for YOU.
