Limbs are available in three different lengths: short, medium, and long. When equipped with short limbs, a 25-inch riser measures 66 inches from tip to tip, but when fitted with medium limbs, it measures 68 inches from tip to tip. Even longer limbs can be used to create a 70-inch bow.

- Short, medium, and long are the three distinct lengths of limbs available. Each of these three sizes may be attached to one of two distinct riser lengths, namely, short and long. You may get four distinct bow lengths if you mix these three sizes with the two riser sizes: 64, 66, 68, and 70 inches.
