I'm not sure what you mean by "max out". I draw around 60 inches until I feel the bands stop and then draw no more.

I have been shooting for years and i have never worried about elongation percentages.

This sport is abut having fun and hitting what you are shooting at and, for those who hunt, it's about delivering enough power to dispatch game. There are no rules. If you don't pull back all the way it doesn't matter except that you won't hit it as hard. Also keep in mind that drawing to full length does give you some consistency in power that you won't have if you are altering your draw length by not fully drawing.

I agree completely with Island made. Pull to a stop and release.

I don't know the routine for those who aim. I would suspect they would lose power if they spent too much time holding at length while aiming. Perhaps that could be the explaination for not drawing all the way.

With instinctive shooting there is no aiming and, hence, no advantage to holding at length. Like Island made said "...all in one motion".
