These are recommendations for finding out the proper bow length:
 

 

Draw length:   Bow length:
23" and under 62"
23 to 25"  64"
25 to 27"   66"
27 to 30"  68"
30 to 32"         70"
31 to 34"   70 - *72"
* Not too many manufacturers produce the 72" limbs


How do I get the right bow length:

 
Bow length:  
64" Short riser and short limbs
66"  * Long riser and short limbs
66"  Short riser and medium limbs
68"  * Long riser and medium limbs
68" Short riser and long limbs
70"        * Long riser and long limbs
72"   ** X-Long riser and long limbs
* long riser 25" and **27"
88short riser 23"     Note: Short riser will result in an approximate 2 lb. increase over the marked limb weight.
