Satori recurve build. What starting point for brace height?

Hoyt satori riser 17”
Uuhka Gobi long limbs
62” overall length

I was figuring starting at 8”???

Going to be a process and hoping for a fun project.

That sounds about right.

My 19” satori with medium Uukha limbs is tuned at a 8” brace height.

The 17" satori has a lot of deflex. I'm at 8.5" with XL uukha sx+ and the bolts turned in most of the way. anything under 8 3/8" doesn't leave enough of the string groove visible for my taste. With longs, you might be able to go a little shorter.

I started at 7.5 that they set up at RMS and now I’m about at 8. I had to increase for a stiffer spine. Eichler says In a video to start at 8 and work in increments of 3 twists. I thought it shot great at 7.5 with lighter spined arrows but as I made a heavier hunting set up it had to be raised to get a tune.

My brace is set at 8".

Anybody using a rest on their 17" satori or just shooting off the shelf?

I shoot off the shelf but have been considering going elevated. Tried out trad vanes this year and it went pretty well. 19" riser though.

I run just a hair over 8" on brace height.
