Bow Length

Bow length is the distance from the tip of the top limb to the tip of the bottom limb of an unstrung bow with the tape following the limbs. Depending on which riser length and limb length you choose, you can tailor your bow to your specific needs. Refer to the following chart to determine your bow length.

Riser Length Long Limbs Medium Limbs Short Limbs
Short Riser (23") 68" 66" 64"
Long Riser (25") 70" 68" 66"

Note: A short riser will result in an approximate 2 lb. increase over the marked limb weight.
