That is where I am at with it. My last 56" shoots 186 @ 10gpp. I an thinking the one I am building now will be just a few feet faster still. Optimising the design for the size and good tillering I think is the key. There is a lot more going on with really short bows than When the TBB1 was penned. I still remember getting first copy in 92.
I suppose you have to ask yourself what your needs are and if you dont need a really short bow then go with the longer one but if you want a short twig for hunting with out sacrificing Accuracy, real Speed and Forgivness then look at the forward handle designs from makers like Big Jim, Tim Mullins and others as well as myself.
I dont think I am giving up anything in terms of real performance by shooting a 56" vs a 66" but I certainly do enjoy its short profile and how much of a joy it is to shoot.
