I had a turbo model with a 6" BH and a 29" DL and shot fine with, so, I don't know that there is a "set" standard.

Brace Height affects accuracy. Even though the arrow is only on the string a milisecond longer, that milisecond can affect where and how your arrow flies based on your form and follow through. Brace height also affects string slap on your forearm.

All that said, I would get the 6". Your draw length is lower than average (I believe the industry average is 29"), so the impact of a shorter brace height will be lower since you have a shorter draw stroke. Also, you can negate the negative impact of string slap with a nice arm guard. More importantly, we can all tell you want the 6" brace height! Fast bows are fun. Go for it!

As a matter of fact, I do want the 6 inch brace height for the fact that I can shoot her a heavier Arrow faster. Probably for that reason alone.
I would almost argue the fact that when I shot the 6, it seemed to shoot smoother than the 7 while delivering more authority to the shot.

Having said that, and this bow I'm going to stick with for another 10 years or so, I want to do this right, meaning regardless if I want the 6, I would rather have the better performing bow

Let me ask you guys this, is there a downside or a negative affect on a bow with a 7 inch brace height Shooting a 27.5 inch draw length? And would The 6 inch brace height compensate where the 7 inch brace height is lacking?

The only major drawback for a 7" brace height is slower speed. It also sounds like you think the 7" isn't quite as smooth on the draw cycle, so that is another draw back. Good luck with your decision. Throwing down a bunch of money on a new piece of equipment is fun, but I understand you wanting to get it right.

the difference is extremely minimal.. only reason why I say the 6 was smoother is because it seemed to fall into the back wall more firm.
getting more rotation out of the cam maybe??

The 7 was an incredible bow in its self.

I would be happy with either.
if I were to number them I would say the R7 was a 9.5 and the R6 was a 10
out of 10 stars, or 10 thumbs up

Maybe I need to shoot them both again. leave my hoody on, do 50 pushups stand and shoot.....

I'm new to archery, someone explain what the brace is.

Still breaking in my new bow. Shot this group today at 20 yards in my back yard.

Brace height is measured from deepest part of the grip to the string. Do a Google search "brace height" for photos. There are good examples but copyright laws prevents me from copy and pasting them.

Can you see the difference in the cams? Or the reason the 7 "felt" not as smooth?
Those photos are from both bows

Now that is a good question. Yes, cams set to the draw length to get the most rotation is better. I currently have Carbon Spyder 34 with the #2 cam set at 29". That is the max setting. The #3 cam would put that draw in the middle. The #2 gets more of the rotation.

After looking around, my brace height is 6 1/4 inch as per the manufacturer. My draw is 31" (I'm 6'5") and weight is 65lb draw. Any experienced archers have any thoughts on this setup for a beginner? I'm still breaking in the string. It has roughly 100 shots since I purchased it.
