[OTHER] Right bow length

Hi all, after getting back into archery I've just found a local club that shoots 3D. Really fancy this but don't want to carry round my target compound. So, I've got a samick discovery field recurve riser and would like the matching limbs. How do I determine if I need the medium or long to make either a 60 inch or 62 inch bow? 17 inch riser. I've asked a couple of shops but they just seem to tout what they have in stock. Not really what I want to hear. Sorry if this is a daft question but just want to make sure I have the right limbs for myself. Thanks.

I shoot medium Uukha limbs on a 17" Border ILF riser to make a 60" bow. The 17" riser is 8" shorter than the standard 25" one so short limbs will make a 58" bow, medium 60", and long 62". Using limbs that are rated for a 25" riser, as ILF ones are, add roughly 8 pounds in their rated draw weight when used on a 17" riser, 32Ib limbs will draw about 40Ib on a 17" riser.

Well that's what I was thinking, use the medium limbs to make a 60 inch bow. They are discovery limbs too so are made for the bows riser at the correct poundage. Are there any advantages/disadvantages to using the 62 inch bow over the 60 inch set up. I'm just concerned at getting the right set up for me. I basically need to know do I need the 60 or 62. Compound I'm using a 50lb mybo origin at 28.25 draw length. Cheers.
