    I just switched to an Elite Energy 35 and my draw feels short. I was shooting a PSE @ 27.5 now my Elite @ 28. To measure draw is nock point to pivot point plus 1.75 inch. Am I on the right track? This is my 2nd bow so I'm still new to this. Thanks for any feed back!

    I was told by a guy that elites run shorter than other bows for some reason by a half size

    Different bows run diff sizes. I know for a fact the elites run inch and a half shorter than the Mathews. I am not to sure about pse.

    The only way to Measure draw length is on a draw board.
    I have tuned and measured every E series bow since they came out. Haven't seen any that ran more then 1/4 inch short or long and that was because of its tune.
    Energy 35 been spot on.

    99% of the Mathews bows that come into my buddy's "Mathews shop" are running at least 1/2" long.

    Most of them don't have accurate draw lengths but I think Elites are usually one of the better ones. I know bowtechs usually come in about 1/4 long. The worst I've seen is Matthews, at 3/4" on some of them. Most likely how these companies are squeezing out more speed by deceiving us.

    Thanks for the feed back. It could all be in my head, but I will take it to bow shop and see. A lot of archery is mental anyway.
