Question Measuring bows

Ok so this might sound like duh kinda question but here goes. When stating the size of a stacked bow to sell what do you measure the actual TBB or the spike as the width of the bow?

Me too. I have noticed that some sellers state the size and then add "spike to spike" in their item description.

I measure spike to spike as well, but my spikes dont really hang over my biggest bow that much anyway so it is close to the actual bow width anyway. Hope that makes sense.

Thank you everyone thats what I kinda thought when measuring. I was cutting my spikes 1" bigger then the bow width but they seem too small.
