The PSE bow that I have always used is a 29" draw. Would it be ok for me to go up to a 30" draw?

The info on the bow says it has adjustable draw length plus on minus three-eights of an inch.

Sure as long as the draw length is adjustable. Be careful tho, if the bow is tuned and shooting properly you could be playing with fire. Also are you sure you need to go up on draw length? I have found most folks shoot to long a draw length. At full draw the bow arm should be slightly bent at the elbow and the string should touch the tip of the nose.

Heres why I'm asking. Cabela's has the one I want on clearance right now and they are sold out of the 29" models.

Not sure what type of PSE you are lookin at but I'd say you can get the 29" modules from PSE without a problem.

If you shoot a loop, this makes it neccessary foryour draw length on your bow to be even shorter then what you think it should. You don't want to get one too long. The best thing to do is pull a 30" back and see how it feels, with a loop if you plan on on using a loop.

DITTO, you will have to get the 29 in modules to put into the bow to be able to shoot it right.

No, never tried a string loop.
The loop just seems like one extra thing to worry about fooling with when I'm already nervous about the deer moving into range.
