    potentially stupid BH question

    you know sometimes you think so hard about something no one answer makes sense anymore ?

    im having one of those moments

    recurve BH - IN GENERAL (assuming draw weight / make of limb / etc are all the same) would a longer (say 70") bow have a higher or lower or similar BH to a short (66") setup ?

    I shoot a 64" KG1 and the bracing height is 9" TO 91/2"(to the back of the bow
    A 66" KG1 has a bracing height of 9 1/2" to 10 1/2"

    So the bigger the limbs the bigger the BH

    I would expect a longer bow to have a bigger B/H, basic geometry.

    If the longer bow was created by fitting a longer riser between the same limbs, would the limbs be in the same position, relative to the riser, and use the same BH?

    I would say that it depends on the bow and the shooter and his form. I cannot see any reason why a 60" bow and a 68" bow could not both have a brace height of 8". My bow is a 68" and the required brace height is between 7,5" and 8,5" and I have set it to close to 8,5". A brace height of 9-10" as mentioned for the KG1 bows, sounds crazy. That is extreeme brace heights for such short bows - I think.
