Some of you have contacted me about donating arrows. I need help determining the arrow length for him. He was supposed to have been at the house last Friday but got himself grounded so I couldn't measure him for draw length or arrow length. This is what I know, he's 5'-8". Using the rule of thumb of your arm span is the same as your height give or take an inch then dividing that by 2.5 he should have a draw length 27.2", which I find hard to believe but that's the math. I draw a 28" at 6'-0" so have a hard time believing he will have a 27" draw. But that being the case should his arrows be 28"? Help?

On a related topic. I boxed up a bunch of stuff to send to you. Plan to ship it tomorrow.

On the arrows, he might have longer or shorter arms than standard. Might be a good idea to measure him. Too short is a real problem. Too long can always be cut down.

My brother in law is 5'8" and he has a 26" draw. Measured by a bow tech in Gallatin.
