    Razorback Recurve 0966 - 66" Correct Sting Length

    Hi, I am new to this forum and new to archery, having not shot a bow in about 20 years. Anyway, I just decided to get back into it and bought an older compound bow and a few older recurves that were too reasonable to pass up. I am learning all I can about AMO standards and proper string lengths...

    The recurves I bought are:
    1.) Bear Red Bear 50, (Assuming 50 AMO 46" actual length).
    2.) Fleetwood Outers No. 2004 Fibre Glas 54" Bow, 50" String, 25-30# at 26", (this one is easy, string length is printed on the bow).
    3.) Razorback 0966 - 66", 40# at 28", (Assuming 66 AMO 62" actual length). This is the one I am concerned about, the bow has white fiberglass "arms" and has some small cracks in the fiberglass, which I intend to try to fix. Should I use a 62" string? Or would it be safer to use a 63" string?

    Thanks, any input will be greatly appreciated.

    62' string should be fine.

    Recurve bow can have a better style customization but compounds are more practical: more fps, comfortable to carry, don't need an additional care as wooden recurve needs. Heres a list of the best compound bow comparison. Also, here's a cool video about compound bows https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcGkuuiS5sk.
