28" working it into that draw length,it should take 30min of limb working ,no less on such a new bow.the limbs will eventually get the memory they need for it to be pulled to 28' at a regular basis.dana just go slow no need to be in a hurry,if you do it right the bow will out last you...james

Good info James, right now I'm only pulling about 25" if the doc can fix my shoulder I may eventually pull 27" :)

@ robustus: great bow, it looks very (veryveryvery) fast
@ DanaM: I wish You - and your shoulder - a fast recovery, so you can use the full power of your new bow  :)
