    I think you are best chatting directly with Border. Your draw length is longer than most of us have come across and Sid can talk you through each limb type, as well as making sure your measurements align with how they do things.

    I think either would be fine, from my experiences with those models. I still think a 74in bow would be fine.

    However, as TT says, Border will be able to advise you properly

    Oh, and while I remember...

    With Border, you can order a specific draw weight at a specific draw length. For example, my HEX7.5s are marked "41lbs @ 32in".

    So tell them you want 42lbs @ 34in and the riser you're mounting them on, and they'll match that weight, + or - 1lb.

    The whole of the UK is snowbound so I'd guess Border aren't in work at the moment, so they'll be a bit behind when they get into work again.
