How does your draw length compare to your height? I'm 6ft and shoot 27.5 inch drawn length

5'11" 29.5 draw

The best method I have found for measuring draw length is wingspan divided by 2.5. This method is greater than 95% effective for measuring one's draw length. Shaq probably falls outside the effective parameters of this equation!

Your draw length is a little low when compared to your height if you look at averages. Of course, your body type will dictate the draw length.

Also depends a lot on brand of bows, some lengths actually measure longer than stated on cam or mods.

Don't think TeeRex would have a shorty draw of 27.5"!

6'1" 29

I shot 30" for many years, switched to 29 and never had the sling slap my arm again.

Not uncommon, a large percentage of archers have draw lengths that are set too long for one reason or another.
