    I received a Tamerlane from my Brother in law recently. Very nice bow but it is extremely noisy. I have changed the brace height from 8" to 9.25" and no change. It is 69" long with a draw weight of 49# @ 31". does anyone know what the brace height should be. Thanks!

    For some reason when tuning my bows they all seem to tune best with nock setting 3/4” high which seems much higher than most. I’m wondering if there is something I’m not seeing? At 3/4” high my bare shaft shoots great with no up and down, I’m shooting off the shelf.

    I may have egg on my face if someone can tell me where this is in the manual, but I can’t find a brace height recommendation in the DAS Tribute manual. Setting mine up with Dryad LBX limbs. Anyone know where I can find a brace height table? Or know the recommended range? Also, anyone else...

    This is from the Easton Arrow Tuning and Maintenance Guide: Is there an inconsistency between the text and the diagram? When the shaft/nock is level, the starting line is at the bottom of the shaft/nock, right? The paragraph says to try a nock height of 1/2" above square. For the diagram...

    I was looking at the UK Mybo Pathefinder - a minimalist riser with a lot of deflex. With the deflex, the specs are saying the BH will be 8.5" to 9.25" on a 19" riser. I draw 27" and most of my ILF setups with medium limbs on 19" risers, my BH...

    :deadhorse I know, I know, another dead horse, but gleaning bits and bobs from the Net, I came up with the following: "If your arrow is acting stiff, raise the brace height. A higher brace height will slightly slow the arrow due to the reduced power stroke." Given: a non-ILF recurve bow...

    What is the recommended brace height for the DAS Elite? DAS Kinetic doc states 7.5" to 8" for a 62" bow, but that is from the Gen 1 documentation. My Gen 1 is set at 7.5" on a 64". I assume 7.5" would be good on the Elite 64" bow also. Thanks Gil

    According to his test with one bow, there was no significant change in arrow velocity, even with a large change in brace heights. I cannot help but wonder if he might have had a different conclusion from testing more than one bow.

    After a 6 month break from shooting due to a shoulder injury, I started shooting again this week. I have a new pair of Border Hex 7.2 longs that I needed to set up. I recorded some of my findings and thought I would share them here, since people are always trying to figure out string length...

    I use dental floss usually to tie nock sets on strings. BUT as much as I change setups, I have often used masking tape. NEW TRICK for me the last year or so. 3M NEXCARE Absolute Waterproof Tape. YIKES this stuff is great, stays put, I've even torn it off and moved it. I LOVE IT. Credit goes to ...

    The standard is to get bare and fletched to impact together (at some distance) and if one has vertical separation between the two, then adjust the nock height accordingly. Well, what about drag from the fletchings? At what distance do feathers (or vanes) have an effect on arrow impact height...

    Hi friends of the Damon Howatt Hunter. I bought one not long ago second hand and tried to find out the best brace height. My Hunter (build 1998, with fast flight tips): 62" bow, 50 lbs "on fingers", 29.5" draw length. I tried BH between 6 3/4 and 7 3/4". The sound of the bow does not seem to...

    Is there a unified theory? If not, are there any strong more specific theories?

    If You have riser and limbs of two different makers , what value is more important to adjust brace height, from riser maker or from limbs maker? Let's say - limbs BH 7.5"-8.75" and riser 9"-9.75".

    Is there a formula or calculation to work out the proper brace height for ILF set ups? Something based off riser length/limb length perhaps?

    Just wondering what brave height you are running with the 25” G1 and long limbs? I am running around 9 and 5/8” most of the time, but have gone to 9 3/4” A’s well and it seems best around this range of numbers. Seems to degrade in performance around 9 1/2” and below. More vibration and less...

    I just recently got my first WARF(BB done by LocDo) and am setting it up with an elevated rest(Xpert magnetic stick on). I have not shot an elevated rest for quite some time and seem to remember on previous bows that my nock height was closer to level than when shooting off the shelf. Strangely...

    What would the brace height be for a 54” Shakespeare Proline 'Osprey' recurve bow?

    I purchased a CD WF 19 riser and recently bought long limbs to make a 64 inch bow. How do you determine what the brace height should be. Can this information be found somewhere online. I also bought a endless string whereas I am used to a Flemish string.
