Only reason for me, if the bow is for me. Is that that's all the wood the stave had to work with and I wanted to make that piece shoot. Then I would make a string draw stop to keep me from pulling too far. That's about the only reason for me. But then it would probably be passed on to someone that can make use of it.

But I'm guessing this post is more about venting frustration On a more personal note.
I should of titled the topic differently.
Nope no venting here. All good answers, sums it up for me.
================================== Is a string draw stop legal in say 3-D shoots and such..? I may of heard about that method before, sure makes sense coon catcher.

I build 'short draw' bows because I don't always shoot in that classic standing pose where I can get my personal 26" draw. If I build a bow for brush hunting, or sit hunting, I do not use my normal 27" "standing draw", I use a "draw to bow shoulder" or "draw to center chest" technique, with the bow almost completely horizontal.
It's an urban myth that an archer "must" draw to the, chin, ear, etc, brought to you my those English longbowmen. Horse archers and many other traditional shooters did not draw that far.
