Bowstring length and corresponding pull weight.
(I think)

" When there is no room in Hell, the dead will walk the earth." Ever noticed the verse in the Bible that speaks of Hell enlarging itself ? Just a friendly jab.

Psalm 1

Looks to me like the axle length once strung and corresponding draw weight. The axle length can change depending on how many twists you put on the string before stringing.

The OP's question concerns a RECURVE. Not a compound.

If these are limbs that can attach to multiple risers (handle) the length of the riser affects the length of bow and hence draw weight, brace height (affected by length of string) also makes a difference, but not normally accounted for on lib numbers.
