welcome to the forums Eli. I'm looking for some history on this thing. So far I'm drawing a blank.
I wanted to advise you on something so you don't get differeing opinions. The 62" on the bow designates the length of the bow and the "AMO" length of the string. The AMO designation means the string is made to the proper length for that bow, but don't be surprised if the string measures 4" shorter or 58". That's how strings for recurves and longbows are made. Regardless, they are packaged and marked for the bow and will be marked 62" AMO.
Hope this helps you in some way.
