Recurve/Longbow Strings

As a general rule of thumb the string length needed for a recurve will be 4" shorter than AMO length for dacron or 3" shorter for low stretch 'fast flight' materials or longbows.  With that said the AMO standards aren't always followed.  If your bow does not have a string or you want to double check the measurment by measuring the bow unstrung.  To do so measure from string groove to string groove in a straight line along the belly of the bow.
