Default Brace height ?

When looking at new bows how does the brce height come into play, and how do you figure out what height is need. Been looking at a few new bows just wondering which brace height to get without asking the local proshops...

Generally speaking, the shorter the BH the faster, and less forgiving the bow. If a bow has a short BH, the cam is in a power stroke longer, transferring more energy to the arrow, creating more speed.

Visit this site, it was really helpful to me. Everything there makes sense and I think it will help you be a more effective archer. In the sense of knowing your equipment and what its capable of.
