I bought a indian seneca recurve that's 58"@45# and wanted to know if anyone familiar with this bow can tell me the actual brace height for the bow. Right now I have it set at 7 1/2. The bow still doesnt shoot quite right because it doesnt feel like its 45# but has info on the limbs that says it is. Any help would be helpful. Thanks, Myron

Try closer to 8", and as for the weight, maybe someone around you has a scale they can check it with. It was an entry level bow that pretty near anyone could afford back then and you see them quite often on Ebay. It's a good utility weapon and you can still buy them pretty cheap. You just have to find where the brace works best.

My 58" seneca BH is set at about 7 3/4". I did find on the internet a mess of info about Indian bows, production models and brace heights..
Does your bow have string grooves at the limb tips? Some seneca models don't have a string groove which creates an annoying string slap. Some velcro may be needed to deaden slap

I bought this bow at a yardsale for 20 bucks and put a B55 Dacron string on it. It's in great shape and is a 1961 year model. I thought it was a cool find. I also bought a 52"@50# Ben Pearson recurve from the same guy.

It actually is very quite, but my string has extra wrap on the ends to prevent bow slap on the limbs.
