QUESTION: How do I measure the length of my traditional bow?
ANSWER: The easiest way to measure the length of your traditional bow is to start at the string groove, follow the curvature of the limb along the belly side of the bow, across the riser area, and follow the curvature of the other limb to the other string groove. This will give you the a.m.o. bow length.
Actual string length for a Recurve bow will be 4″ shorter than the a.m.o. bow length.
Actual string length for a Longbow will be 3″ shorter than the a.m.o. bow length.
When purchasing a string from Bingham Projects, indicate your a.m.o. bow length and type of bow. Any package purchased from us will have the a.m.o. bow length indicated on the packaging, not the actual string length.
