Bow & draw length suitability
If a bow is marked for example 40#@28", max draw 29" this bow would be suitable for someone with a draw length up to 28" NOT over 28"
If you had a draw length over the stated 28", then the bow is NOT suitable for you
Even though the bow may state the max draw 29", this means that a safety margin has been built into the bow for the odd occasion when you may unknowingly draw slightly more
It is not designed for you to continually draw over 28"If it is found that this is the case you will invalidate the warranty and no repair or replacement will be offered
