I just took possession of a new to me Northern Mist Superior, 66" 56@28, green glass back and belly, bamboo cores, bocate riser and tips. Looks to be made in 2010.  Was wondering what is the recommended brace height range for this model.  I'm thinking 6-7 inches but just wanted to inquire.

Thanks much

Pretty much settled on a 6 5/8" for my 62" Baraga. The advice I got from Steve Turay was to keep lowering the brace height until it affected good arrow flight.

Michael, I'm think you're in the right range. I have a 68" Classic, 68" American and 66" Whisper and they all shoot fine "FOR MY SHOOTING STYLE" at 6-1/8" to 6-1/4". You're shooting style my require something different. Find what will work best for you.

Thanks much.  I always go thru the process to find where the bow is the quietest and cast the arrow the best.  So the bow will determine it's own brace.  But I just wanted to see where the min/max  are falling to get a starting point.

Thanks again!!!!

So in the big perspective, brace height and nocking point height are the two main tuning adjustments that you can make to your bow. (And then maybe shelf adjustments too). If your arrow is well matched to the bow, your brace height will tune out somewhere in that range. If your arrow is mismatched (excessively spine stiff/weak) you may fall far outside of that zone and/or get false-positives. The closer to the middle of that zone you can get, the better the bow will shoot. More so, the better matched all your bow/arrow components are, the wider that zone becomes. The time tested wood-spine formulas for length and point weight can get you pretty close, but finding that same place with carbonsl length/point weight takes a good bit more doing and experimenting but either way, the goal is the same
