    How do I know what size bow string to get

    I bought a Pearson recurve at a yard sale and it needs a bowstring. The bow is marked AMO60 but I've read that both 3" and 4" shorter then AMO is correct. I normally get my compound strings from 60xcustomstrings but I have no clue when it comes to recurves. Thanks

    You need a 57" bow string, the string length is generally 3" less then the AMO length.
    You can get one from Fishing and Hunting USA website just click this link

    Every thing I googled said the same thing, most are 3" shorter but I did find some 4" shorter but you could use either one

    You can just call 60x custom strings or proline bowstrings and tell them the make and model and they know the size string you can get. I got a 57" compound bowstring from them over the phione.
