    alright I know this is a little crazy but wouldn’t it be cool to see a bow with adjustable brace-height. Picture the switchback but the limb slides and locks at points in the limb cup thing

    It’s kind of hard to describe

    I have a recurve that has adjustable brace height, just add/remove twists on the string. :thumbup

    alright so the limb slides forward or backward on top or bottom of the riser
    looking kind of like the limbsaver bow.
    sliding it forward would expose the end of the limb in front of the riser to decrease brace height. you could slide it back until it was flush with the riser to increase brace height
    so do you understand :-B :-B :-B

    OK, but what will that do to draw weight?

    Limb bolts change the angle of the limb in the pocket or the amount of preload. Either way, it changes the draw weight. A ‘sliding’ limb would do much the same thing, but maybe only in a wider range of draw weight.

    The presumption is that a variable brace height has some optimal ‘tuned’ height for the archer. I’m not sure that’s a valid point.

    Eh, well…HAHA! UM, I’m not huge on brace height, just a large one! (7 inches or more) So…well I dunno, I’m hammered. Peace. [=}=]
