Brace Height - Old Target Bow - SkiSoloII

I have an old Black Widow target bow with 2 sets of limbs. color" off-white. I cant find markings on the riser, but both limbs show 1225 on them. They are 36# and 42# at 28" respectively, 69". Limb serial numbers are 3990 for the 42#, and 3593 for the 36# limbs. I purchased this bow back around 1980, and shot it quite a bit back then. I know it had been used quite a bit when I bought it. I was going to try to get back into some shooting, but was hooping to set it up right. Can anyone help me with some basic specifications? Specifically, the recommended brace height. Thank you, Dave

For most bows of that height I would suggest a BH of nine [9]inches as the minimum. The lengthest bow I have ever shot is 66" and the BH for that height is 8 1/2 to 9"

Dave: Here is a little information for you on the T-1225.The limbs with the serial number of 3593 and 36# was made in 1972.The bow cost $169.50 new and an extra set of limbs would cost you $79.50.The handle color choice was ivory,black or red.Physical weight of bow 4 pounds.String heights for 67"bow was 9 1/2" to 10 1/2" a 69" bow string height was 9 3/4' to 10 3/4". On the bow limbs 3990 42# which was made in 1973 everything was pretty much the same except the price and it went up to $189.50 and a additional set of limbs was set you back $94.75 Hope this has been a help.
