Those of you who shoot a Samick Sage just wondering what brace height you shoot it at. Just curious. Thanks

I have a Sage, I draw 28 inches and I have the BH set at 8 1/2 inches.

I'll be the odd man out on this one. I use a really hard string on mine and brace it at about 7 3/4". It is not quite as quiet but it is noticeably quicker. The beauty in the Sage bow is that you can abuse them to get performance and if you happen to ruin a limb, you can find a new set for around $40. I have yet to have a problem with one. Build yourself a skinny string out of compound bow string material. Pad the string loops and center serving area to get them as thick as a normal string. Then have fun. You will be surprised how big of a difference it makes.

Mine was 8 1/4 with D97. Get rid of the stock string.

The recommend brace height by Samick was 7.5" to 8.25". Brace height helps fine tune the flight of the shaft. Proper brace height can help quiet your bow also. You have to remember though the lighter you arrow the more noise you will get from your bow. Brace height alone can only do so much to help quiet a bow and influence arrow flight. Also the brace height needed, can be influenced by draw length. More than likely the brace height for my 30inch draw will be different than for yours if you have a 27" draw. Start with the low end setting, work your way up to see where you get your best arrow flight, then add string silencers. You "may" have to adjust a little after adding them. If you change string materials say from B50/B55 to a High Performance Material your brace height setting will change more than likely, for your best arrow flight. DANNY

There is no "same brace" for everyone. You just do what works for you Mike. Mine is right on 8" with an endless loop low stretch string. That was where it suited me the best. My grandson's is set at 8 1/4 +/-.
