    4 is the model number
    41 is the poundage

    Archery Craft was known for marking the exact poundage while most other companies rounded to even numbers or nearest multiple of 5

    I have an old Archery Craft recurve bow made in Toronto Canada, It has
    the markings 4 and 41 stamped into the wood. What does this mean? The
    length following the curve is 56" between where you attach the string
    and it looks as though a string approx 52-53" would be the right
    length. How can I figure out the proper string length and amount I can
    draw (proper arrow length). Thanks for any help.
