      This standard is used whenever only one face is used on a buttress whether it is 40, 60, 80, or 122cm. If multiple faces are used they are centered around this point (either above/below or side by side for 2; or quartered for 4). As I mentioned, this is the SCA and we can do whatever we choose -- after all we set the rules. I present this only for a starting point. By all means place the faces where your shooters are comfortable. I move the faces around on mine so nobody gets too used to a particular position.

      In tournament I can see having the center 130cm off the ground
      because you are firing at 122cm targets (48" face). That place the
      edge of the target roughly 2' off the deck. One must consider the
      bottom of the target when you think of the 130cm reg. If you placed
      the bottom of the target at 27" you have the center at 3'3" on a 60cm
      target. Well within your comfort zone.

      It is my personal opinion however that you allow the archer to place
      the target at what ever height they so desire. If they enjoy
      shooting they will return. Remember this is supposed to be fun so
      give them their favorite shot.
