I am 58 now but i bought a Shakespeare fiberglass recurve bow when I was only 15 years old. I paid $50.00 for it.
I just got the bow out and want to take up archery again. The bow measures 51" long. Below the handle on the belly side can be read:
"45#
c11793t
52"
What size string do i buy? What length arrows do I use?

This is my first post,
Thanks,
Steve

Buy a recurve string for a 52" Bow. To check your draw length use the Wing Span method. Measure your wing span aganist a flat surface tip to tip. Take that minus 15" and divide that figure by 2. That will put you right in the ball park for your correct draw length.
