Does the draw length plus bow poundage result in a higher fps and kinetic e? For example.

Would a draw length of 32" with 70lb draw weight with 420 grain arrow result in higher fps and ke than 30" 70lb?etc...

I am 6'2" tall but have a tip to tip finger measurement of 6'6" working with a 31" draw and need 32 to 33 I believe. I am working on a shadowcat with cat2 cams for draw length set up by Martin and wonder if the previous will affect the overall outcome of all factors?

Check out this website and it will answer your question. For every inch of drawlength you go down you will lose apprx ten fps.
