The following bow, "T-35" by Francesco Alessi, is 110cm ntn (<44").



it begins stacking slightly at 25-26". so such a bow scaled up to 50" wouldn't stack at all at 28". if my math is right, drawing a scaled-up 50" version to 28" is like drawing this one to 24.36", and a 48" one to 25.67". still an insignificant amount of stacking. plus, such a less stressed bow would be able to hold more reflex

I draw my 48 inch Turkish bow to 30 with no real stacking and it doesn't show much string follow even if strung for a few days.
A standard length for a 28 inch draw Turkish bow would be around 42 inch. Of course you can modify any design to suit.
if you take the length of the bow and divide by 1.5 you will get its potential drawlength. So my 48 inch bow could go to 32 inch draw.   48/1.5 = 32.
Stacking in isolation is down to the design of the tips (angles) more than the length of the bow.
