draw length vs draw weight, does the weight go down with a shorter length draw
i have had shoulder surgery that has considerably decreased the my draw length, the adjustment of this bow very much intrigues me but whats the effect on the draw weight for a shorter draw length?

it has a three seting system going from 13 to 30 inches and 5- 70 pound weight. very easy to set up and has adjustments from min of 13 in draw length and 27(max at 13 in) pounds draw weight up to a 30 in drawlenght and 70 pound weight.
There is a ratio to length vs weight, I've set mine for 29 inch at 60 lbs, but I bought this because I have a bad shoulder and wanted the flexibility of turning down if needed, what I found is it is so smooth drawing once you get your muscles a little used to this you realize you can turn up the weight. I started at 48 lbs and tweeked up to 60 at this point, enough horse power for me but really a comfortable bow. Hope this helps, any more questions let me know.

I just got out of the military and had sholder surgery too. I bought the bow and dialed the poundage down to where it was easy to practice with and slowly built the poundage up each week until I was confortable at 60 pounds with no issue.

even at 25" draw length the max draw weight is still 75#
