I have shot all my bows for the last 10 years or more turned down tight. Anywhere from 80# years ago to 60# now.
At one time it was believed to be harmful to tighten the limbs down tight but with the advent of these newer glues and the use of solid glass instead of laminated limbs I don't think it hurts a thing and may even make the bow a little quieter.
It is a known fact that a bow shoots better at Max weight than at some reduced weight.
It's a good thing it is a known must be true.:tongue:

In my world, i find my bows to shoot the best anywhere from 1/2 to 1 turn down from max. But then again, I'm one of those guy's that bare shaft tune with a's another known fact that bare shaft tuning is for finger shooters:tongue:

Seriously...............where a bow will shoot it's best, depends on what arrow/tip combinations your are using. Change the arrow and you have to retune the bow to match the arrow..............tuning the bow to the arrow involves adjusting the bow weight to match the spine of the arrow. If you shoot a bare shaft at long distances you'll see what changing the bow weight will do.
