Dalaa Manual recomeds to set BH betwen 7.25 and 7.75"
Is this range for short, medium and long limbs?
I ask because most Oly manuals recoment diferent BH for each ILF limbs lenght.
Also read on an old thread about a DAS Master with long limbs and 8" BH.
Thanks:help:

Most bows have a recommended brace height, because that is where the bowyer knows that the bow performs and tunes the best. But that doesn't necessarily mean it MUST be set within that range.

Lots of variables going on and everybody's different. Some people see more consistency with higher brace, some like it at the "sweet spot" (regardless of where ends up), some like the extra fps at lower brace, and others go high just to to be more quiet. I'm sure there is a brace that each bow/limb setup is the best for performance and tuning, but there's always a catch.... brace is just one part of the whole package.

Thanks Dave.
My point is:
If diferent ILF limbs have diferent BH acording to its lenght (short, medium or long) on a 23 or 25" riser, why did not on DAS riser?
Thanks
Martin

Well, I can say that I like my longer recurves braced higher than my shorter ones. On the DAS, it's only a difference of 58, 60, and 62. Seems as though the 66-68" bows is where I've had the brace up towards 9" sometimes.
