An archery shop is the best place to find your correct draw length. Will you be using a release and string loop? - 1/2 inch Do you want some bend in your elbow, so to prevent arm slap? - 1/2 inch let the archery shop measure and advise to what your draw length is.

Cgull is correct. Your draw length has a lot of variables. Arm lenght, shooting style, equipment,your height is not a good measure. Get someone in the know to help you determine it. Most shooters with improper draw length have it too long.

These guys got it perfectly correct. The other question I would have is if your bow is even an adult bow. I didn't think you could get a regular bow down to a 22" draw. I could be wrong.

Heading down to the archery shop is the best choice. But if you would like to get an idea on your own do this: Put your back against the wall with your arms straight out from your sides(like a cross). Have someone mark your wingspan, then measure with a tapemeasure. Then divide the number by 2.5, and this will be your draw length.

Example: My wingspan is 71.5 inches, so 71.5/2.5 = 28.6 inch draw length. I shoot a 28.5 inch draw

try a 28-28 1/2. Regardless I shoot a 25 1n. bow when I need a 29. I have groups in 5 in. at 20 yards so far.
