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?

As with all bows yes it goes down but not a lot for example at 28 inches and maxed out limbs you get 70 pounds pull. At 30 inches that pull increases to somewhere between 72 and 76 pounds. So if you went with say 26 unch draw you might lose 2 or three pounds. Make sense?

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#
