Overspined VS. Underspineed

Hey Fellas,
Below are tips to improve broadhead flight.
Please try to explain this to me. I'm having a heck of a time understanding this.

if an arrow is underspined that means it's too weak, correct. Why would you increase bow weight or decrease arrow spine when it's already underspined. Am I mixing this up?

And if an arrow is overspined, wouldn't that mean it's too stiff, which would require a heavier draw weight or decrease in spine or broadhead weight.

3. Arrow underspined, increase bow weight or decrease arrow spine or increase broadhead weight.

4. Arrow overspined, decrease bow weight or increase arrow spine or decrease broadhead weight.

any help would greatly be appreciated.

Elk: The best thing you could do is pick up a copy of the Easton Tuning Guide (or download it). Bob Ragsdale's site is also full of good info.

Re. the lefts and rights, that may be more relevant to a finger release than mechanical release. In my experience, if you're using a mechanical release, it's hard to have an arrow too stiff.
