Long Draw Length Compound Bow Models

In this article we have a list of long draw length compound bows. Which are ideal for target archery, 3D archery, bowhunting and field archery.

We have compiled the data table so you can compare the new 2022 bows and use it as a reference to find long draw length compounds.

Long draw length bows. Archer at full draw

For many years the tall and long limbed archer had limited choice of bows. Thankfully today, a number of manufacturers have a wider variety of long draw length compounds.

Included in the list are brands like: Hoyt Archery, Mathews, Bowtech, PSE Archery, Obsession, Bear Archery, Darton, Athens Archery, etc.

The chart lists not only the draw length range, but it also includes, model, draw weight range, brace height and mass weight of the bow.

The speed of the bow in F.P.S. (feet per second) is also included.

Please be aware some bow manufacturers use the A.T.A (Archery Trade Association), while other companies use the I.B.O (International Bowhunters Organization) methods for testing the bows speed. These two testing guidelines are very different and hence give different results.

Archer’s Draw Length Vs Bows Draw Length

Just before we get into the long draw bow list and FAQs below, there is some confusion about the archers draw length and archery lengths for some. First let’s get some clarity and discuss the difference between them.

There are roughly four main lengths used in archery, they are; 1. Bows length. 2. Archers draw length. 3. Bows draw length. 4. Arrow length.

  1. Bows length. This is how long the bow is end to end. In this case we are talking about compound bows, so the compound is measured axle to axle.

 

  1. Archers draw length. This is the ideal draw length suited personally to the archer. This should not be confused with the bows draw length.

For more information visit – How To Figure Out Your Draw Length

 

  1. Bows draw length. This is the draw length that the bow is designed to pull at full draw to. With a recurve bow or longbow, you can draw the bow back until it starts stacking. (Getting very hard to draw all of a sudden.)With a compound bow it has a fixed draw length. (Most you can change the draw length with modules or the cam setting.) As an example it might be set at 29” The archer can’t draw it past 29” as it has a draw stop. Likewise you can’t draw it 28”, as the compound draw weight increases rapidly to the maximum weight, then has a let of.

An archer with a 28” draw or a 30” draw won’t be able to shoot the bow accurately set at 29”. Unless you adjust it.

The bow’s draw length needs to be set to match the archers draw length. NOT the other way around.  For more information click on – How To Measure A Bows Draw Length.

 

  1. Arrow length. This is the length of the arrow. Measured from arrow nock groove (throat of the nock) to the end of the shaft. Not to tip. To learn properly how to measure an arrow, visit – How To Measure An Arrow

 

Long Draw Length Compound Bow Models 2022

We have only included those bows with a draw length of 31” or over.

(While an average adult male may have around a proper 28” draw length, that might make a 29” or 30” draw length a long one. But there are plenty of bow models that cover a 29” or 30” draw. So we just listed bows that are at or over 31” draw length.)

How long should your arrow be compared to draw length?        

In a traditional bow the arrow length should go past the riser, especially with a broadhead. So there is no chance it will come in contact with the bow riser or archer’s hand.

With a compound bow the risers are cut past center, so depending on arrow rest type, the arrow can be shorter, the same, or longer.

As an example with a whisker biscuit arrow rest the rest is set back on the riser, closer to the archer. So the arrow can still stick past the arrow rest for safety, but still be shorter than the bow’s draw length setting. The bow could have a 28” draw length, but use an arrow length of 27”

 

If my draw length is 29 inches how long should my arrows be? 

This is discussed as above question and answer. For a compound bow, the arrow can be the same length, shorter or longer depending on arrow rest type.

It might be 30”, 29”, 28” arrow length subject to arrow rest, as well as type of archery you practice.

As an example if you have a target bow set up, the arrow tip doesn’t have to go too far past the arrow rest. But for a bowhunting arrow with a broadhead, you don’t want it close to the arrow rest or hand.

If you are a beginner to archery, you want the arrows longer so you can play around with your draw length to get it spot on.

For youths you want the arrows to be longer, so as they grow, their draw length will get longer. Hence the arrows might be too short in a years’ time, so allow for growth.

If in doubt cut the arrows longer, as you can always cut them again. (Allowing for inserts or Nib points) But if they are too short you can’t add length to them.

 

How to tell if your draw length is too long?   

Your ideal draw length will give you the most accuracy, consistency and comfort.

If your draw length is too long your accuracy won’t be consistent. You will get stray shots and it will be hard to stay on target when aiming. You might get some high and low shots in your arrow grouping on target.

Your elbow might be overextended and you get a fair amount of bowstring slap on your forearm as well.

You will get unnecessarily face contact with the bowstring and have to lean your head too much to look through the peep sight. This can also torque the bow.

Ideally you should stand straight up. Your torso won’t be leaning back, but straight.

Correct draw length for archery.

Take a picture or video of yourself at full draw. Make sure you are on level ground. If you are leaning back, there is a good chance your draw length is too long.

Also have your target at around shoulder height so you are not aiming up or down. Otherwise this can make you look like you are leaning back.

Lighten of your draw weight as well before you do this test, so there is one less factor to worry about. If you are over-bowed, (too heavy draw weight) your form won’t look pretty as well.

How do I find my draw length?

There are a number of ways to check your draw length, like: Your wingspan divide 2.5 = draw length in inches.

Another way is to stand straight up, with your arm out and fist against the wall. Use your bow arm extended (arm that holds the bow), but you won’t be holding a bow.

Your head is looking towards the wall.

Have someone measure in inches from the wall above your fist, to the corner of your mouth.

how to determine arrow length with fist against wall.

You can use a yard ruler, length of dowel, measuring tape or an old arrow.

These will give you a ballpark draw length figure and you can fine tune from there.

This article also talks about how to find your draw length, visit – Youth Compound Bow Models

 

 

How to deal with a very long draw length?

If you are having issues with your long draw length and are having trouble finding a bow, here are a few options:

First check to see what your draw length should be.

Check the bow table to check if no models suit you.

Try different release aid devices and anchor points.

For some bows you can unscrew the hand grip on the riser, this should give the bow a slight longer draw length.

Twist and fiddle with the bowstring and cables to give you a little bit of extra length.

Make your D-Loop slightly longer. Technically it doesn’t change the draw length of the bow, but your anchor point.

(Alternatively if you want your anchor point a bit shorter, don’t use a D-Loop on the bowstring. Instead connect the release aid device directly to the bowstring. Also try different release aid devices.)

See Knocking Points and D-loops for some bow set ups.

Loosen your bow poundage and try a slight bend in your bow-arm elbow than you are used too. While not ideal, it can give you a workable solution until you find a bow with a long enough draw length.

You can get some custom bows made. Some can Frankenstein some bows bits and pieces to create a long draw bow.

 

 

How is a bow’s draw length measured?

At full draw, the distance is measured from the arrow nock groove on the bowstring, to the throat (deepest part of the bow grip) plus 1 3/4″.

(This extra 1 ¾” was for traditional bows, and generally ended at the back of the bows riser. So you know that the arrow length on a trad bow had to be longer. Or the broadhead might contact the bow or archers hand.)

Normally the Berger button hole or plunger button hole (where you screw in the arrow rest bolt) will be in line with the deepest part of the grip.

 

Why use a long draw length?

As discussed above, the draw length should be an exact length for the archer. But for some archers that are tall with long limbs, they will have a long draw length

A longer draw length (that matches the archer) can give an increase in arrow speed. As the power stroke of the bowstring is longer when released at full draw.

 

Is arrow length the same as draw length?     

No, arrow length is different. You can have a longer arrow that sticks past the bows riser.

Likewise you can have a shorter length arrow than a compound bows draw length. You might have an arrow rest that allows for a shorter arrow.

 

 

Who makes long draw length bows?

In the table above is a list of bow manufacturers.

Most quality brand bows like Hoyt, Mathews, PSE, Bear Archery, Bowtech, Moxie, Elite, Darton, etc., might have one or two models suitable for longer draws.
