    Like cosmotiger said, make sure you have it measured right.
    Hoyt will be the only one to do it, that draw length is really only available for High End Target Bows or by a custom order.

    Thanks Guys, went to 2 different Archery shops in Adelaide both got me to hold the arrow with marks on it at my throat with arms stretched out finger tips were at the 34.5" mark nearly at the end of the arrow. Joys of being above average may have to go to a 70+" recurve still looking so see what I come up with. Will check out the suggestions but starting to think unless another giant dies and passes on their 34" draw bow I will be parting with close on $1400.

    Dude, arrows may be your next problem. Protour 380s come at 34inch but the spine chart only goes to 32inch.

    Hoyt's Vantage Limited goes out to 34". Not cheap (but well under $1400), but an excellent bow, and adjustable to shorter lengths if you find the ball-park figure you have been given is wrong (and it quite possibly is).

    As for arrows, the shafts can be up to about 1.5" shorter than your draw length, so there will be a few options cheaper than ProTours. If you want to shoot 60 pounds or more, you may struggle to find a shaft stiff enough though .
    I have no problem with alcohol-free days; I have them all the time. It is the evenings I have trouble with.

    Also Don't forget Second Hand, you may be able to pick up a cheap Vantage or Contender Elite and just get the Cams and XT3000 Limbs to suit if needed.
    Could also try get it cheap from the states, and have them send it unassembled and have your store assemble back for you.

    Look for a secondhand ProElite XT3500. Then get yourself some #6 Cam 1/2. I'm pretty sure they will do your draw and should not be that expensive.

    I just bought a brand new PSE Supra with L6 cams (the bow usually comes with a single cam). I'm sure with those cams it will go out to about 35".

    I only paid $650 USD for it brand new.

    It is a custom order so it did take a few weeks to get it.

    Just been shooting it today and it's a great bow.

    It would be my pick for your draw length.

    I got it from PSE directly. Contact them directly.

    There is a bloke on Archery Talk (a PSE dealer) who could probably get on made up for you. His name is 'Breathn'. I almost bought mine off him.

    Sorry for the late reply, in travelling at the moment.
