    Twist your string until it is .5" shorter and mearue the BH. Then twist the string until it is 1" shorther than now and measure the BH again. You should gain 1" of BH within .5" or 1" of string length.

    $38.50 U.S. dollars.Shipped USPS.More than half the cost of the limbs.

    I won't be getting much from them, little bit more to here. I've purchased bows from the US for not much more.

    And watch the brace height, just because the martin had 7" doesn't mean that's what you need. The deflection angle might be different and this will alter your draw weight, etc. Of course, it might be correct too.

    Put your fist on the handle part of the riser with your thumb up. If it reaches the string that's enough BH. May be the Samick limbs can handle the 7" BH, may be not.

    Default Martin Jaguar take down limbs.

    Thanks to all for your replies.I can see where the 7" brace height may be too high.I'm not an accomplished recurve shooter by any means.My regular bow is a 2008 Martin Bengal compound.Besides,I had $130.00 burning a hole in my pocket.

    Haven't done that for years mate. It's a good way of checking your brace height when out hunting if the string has been failing or stretching too much. The problem is that it depends on your hand size.

    Yes, but i've found that i shoot best my trad bows when the BH is as long as my fist with thumb up (and my palm is not big). Don't know why, but it works with a recurve, a horsebow and several homemade ones
