Welcome to the fire! Somebody with more experience (maybe even one of our resident bowyers) will chime in but here's the deal as I understand it. If you have an really long draw length you need a longer bow. For example, drawing a 64" bow back to 32" will be easier and give you better performance than trying to draw a 58" bow to 32". A bow too short for your draw length will likely present stacking and other potential problems. I would go see or at least call a bow maker (Like Bob Sarrels, a site sponsor) and explain your situation. By the way, you might start over and post this as a new thread in the trad forum - I think you will get more responses (the last post on this thread prior to yours was back in May)
