Default [Basic] Striker Advantage

When I buy the Advantage Striker for a character with SM larger than SM +0 the Striker have the SM of the character or the Striker is calculated with SM +0 and I need get Long Modifier to make it bigger?

I cannot find a Limitation to reduce the Striker SM too.

Assume SM of charecter.
Any advantage, Extra head, Arms, legs, etc are proportional to the rest of the charecter.
A smaller Striker would be a Feature not a limitation unless it had reduced damage or range,

Strikers start at Close Combat length for everyone. Humans have Reach 1 legs, so it's not like the advantage is extremely humanocentric.

I always presumed that Strikers had the same reach as the creature's predominant combat limbs.

Goodness, it seems like every sentence in Basic is countered by another in Pyramid or another book.

I don't see this as a counter, as the quote say it just ties strikers to the rules for limbs. namely Size Modifier and Reach B402

I don't see any contradiction. Could you supply the two contradictory quotes, please?

I'm with them.
To me that just states what I felt was obvious, strikers are treated as limbs with the same reach. Want to hange that you could use the modifers under Extra Arms.
