Hi, I picked up an old Darton take down recurve with the numbers 46# 62" on the lower limb. I know the 46 is the pounds of force at draw and the 62" is the bow length. The seller wasn't sure of the string length, would anyone know what is should be? Also is the 62" the strung bow lenght? Would really appriciate the info.

i forget what it actually stands for maybe someone out there can help you out with that, but that number next to AMO on the bow is your string length.

You can buy a string [B-50] that's 62" AMO or start with one that's 58" actual. AMO standards call for a string that's 3" shorter than the bow's length. However, most recurves take a string that's 4-5" shorter. By twisting the string to lengthen or shorten [use caution with a flemish string], to achieve your desired brace height, you can achieve the proper length. On your next string you can measure the one you have and order the exact size.
