How to Measure Your Bow Draw Length:

How do You Calculate Draw Length?

  1. Stretch your arms out with the palms flat on either side and have someone measure the distance from the tip of your left middle finger to the tip of the right middle finger.
  2. You should divide your wingspan distance by 2.5.
  3. This should give you your draw length. If the resulting number is a fraction, round it to the nearest half-inch.
