    The link that JC posted is a good one and should clear that question up pretty well.

    The way I think if it is pretty simple. Shorter brace height = faster speed + less forgiving. Longer brace height = slower speed + more forgiving. But it's all relative in the big picture.

    Modern bows have been able to offer shooters a pretty fast bow with a relatively short brace height and still make the bow relatively forgiving.
