I hope this is ok to ask this question here. I have a 50# semi recurve bow. How do I measure to get the proper string length?

The length of the bow should also be printed on the bow. You want a string that is 2-4 inches (boy scout rule is 4 inches and this is what I use) shorter than the bow.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

It's a very old semi recurve so there is no length on the bow. The information you imparted, however, was very helpful.

You can also just measure the bow. Or take it into a good archery shop and they should get you set up for just the cots of the string!

Cheers,

Did you find a string yet? If not PM me the length you need and I'll make one for ya. I've been making my own strings for my recurve for years. I might even have one made up already.

what do you want in trade/cash? I've always wanted a recurve I bought my compound at a pawn shop for like $40 and have had a blast with it. so maybe i got something you're looking for not necessarily a firearm cause i only have whati want there. but who knows/

Let me root around and see what I might have, unfortunately I don't have a 995 so no parts/ammo etc.
