Sam as you know archery is such a personal sport.
I like a 23" riser for most of my hunting.
But I'm not an average hunter so to speak, spot and stalk is 98% of how I hunt.
Blinds I can understand shorter bows.

Now 23" with shorts gets me 64" and is what I strive for. This also puts me in a bind, I can't go shorter than short limbs and 64"

So a 21 may be optimum and more versatile but at the moment I don't have medium limbs.
62" is a tad short for me personally but doable.
