I'm trying to figure out what length bow string I need for an old pearson recurve I got at a yard sale. The handle says amo 60. I've searched online and found some say 3" and other say 4" shorter then AMO. Also should I use D97 or Dacron for the string? It appears that D97 is better. I've always used 60X for my compounds but I'm not sure which string I need from their site www.60xcustomstrings.com/recurve/ thanks for any help I've always wanted to try traditional archery.

There's a few guys on here that shoot traditional equipment, so hopefully they'll chime in and give you some feedback on this one!

Generally, 4" shorter for dacron b50 strings, 3" for fast flight type materials if your bow can handle more modern strings.
If you aren't sure, it's safer to go with the Dacron.

I take that life if I can, with regret as well as joy, and with the sure knowledge that nature’s way of fang and claw and starvation are a far crueler fate than I bestow.” – Fred Bear

It will be made the correct length for the bow.
