Loops dont add to draw length, they throw off form but this bow is too long but its hard to say how much. try this with the help of a friend. with your hands straight out like a cross, have someone measure from middle finger tip behind your back to middle finger tip and divide by 2.5. then stand near a wall and extend your fist thumb up and place it on a wall and subtract 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch from the measurement. The point where the sting and arrow nock meet should be at the corner of your mouth. But you have to make sure you use good form when you look at this, leaning back or forward will throw this off. When you get a bow that fits those measurements get a friend to help and draw your bow to shoot and have them stand behind you and look past your elbow to the string. The sting should be fairly inline with your elbow. if it is outside of the elbow on your back side the draw is too short if it doesnt quite make it to the elbow line its too long. I hope this helps you and its great that you are asking. its amazing the people who shoot the wrong draw length and believe me alot of dealers dont know the proper way to measure people. You cant do it with a bow it has to be done with a tape measure then tweek the bow if needed. good luck, and remember the force luke, may the force be with you.
