the Z9 is a good shooting bow but i think there are better options out there for a long draw archery. for shooters with a 30+ in draw the string angle is pretty steep and can cause some anchor issues. for a long draw option id look at the Hoyt Vector 35, PSE Vendetta, or an MR7. These are all longer axle to axle bows that will be more comfortable to shoot for 30+ inch archers.

appreciate the feed back, 30 inch axle to axle is short for for a long draw bow. Am going
to shoot one this coming week so will get to see how it performs.

My brother is shooting one. He loves it. No complaints at all. I think his draw is 31.5", but I am not certain.

I shoot a Mathews Drenlen LD with 31" draw and love it. My archery shop told me not to trade for the z9. Shoot both and see what you think! Good luck.

I sure do miss my Dren LD. I wish they would come out with another bow with those specs but a tad quicker.

Ok, tried out the z9 and was pleased , the bow is unbelieveably smooth and stable for such a short axle length really, liked it. Have'nt ever
shot a drenalin ld but would like to, the price would be much less. Mostly intersted in which ever one will sniff out and take
300 class bulls

If you find one that will sniff out a 300 class bull let me know. I am buying one.

Did your archery shop have a drenlen ld to try? Let me know what you think side by side! Thanks
