Sorry they are labeled 68", so that makes it a 62" bow.

59", and I am finding that after shooting about four or five different pairs of limbs by Uukha, they favor a higher brace height (about 8.25" for 62")

I put this together some time back. Some folks find it useful.

The AMO standard for strings is 3" shorter than actual bow length.

Take off the required amount for a shorter riser-not rocket science?25.4mm per inch.

In my experience with uuhkas vx1000 is that they do not follow the standard minus 3" rule either. I had to make mine about 3.5" shorter than I would for a bow of the same amo.
