Or another way to look at it is that at a 28" drawlength the limbs are
still bending the same amount whether the brace height was six inches
with a long string or eight inches with short string. The difference
is just how much bend there is in the bow to start with.

understand...if a bow doesn't pull full weight (say 32#) at 26", pulls
full weight at 28", and pulls over full weight at 30", why wouldn't a
slightly longer string reduce the pounds of pull at 28"? As I
understand it, the pounds of resistance in the limbs is a factor of
how far they are bent, and if the longer string results in less bend
at 28" draw, why wouldn't the measured pounds of draw be reduced?Randal

Hi, Jim. Hello, Everyone.

My right ring finger was just itching for a ring a moment ago, and I thought of this project. How far along did this move?

Thank you,
