    Default String Length

    I have a Savannah. I am currently interested in trying a bunch of different strings. One maker has asked me to measure the string by letting it hang from a nail and measure from outside of loop,to the outside of the other. He also said it needs to be the length at the correct brace height before measuring. What if I don`t have a string on the bow currently? How do I order a string?

    rule of thumb is to lay the bow down measure from the loop noches down the lenght to the other noch of the bow subtact 4"
