Okay guys, if you tune your bow should you tune it at the dw you plan to use. Or does it matter?
I tune with everything the exact same way I am going to be using the bow. Same weight, DL, let-off, arrows, everything.
2008 Moab 70# The deer killing bow
2008/12 Firecat 60#--- 2010 Warthog 70#
2009 Warthog 70#---2009-10-12? Warthog Frankenbow with Nitrous B
2010 Strother SR-71 65# & 2012 Strother Rush 65#
2012 Strother SX Rush 60# & 2011 Strother Infinity 70#
BSD strings and cables
Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.
Well, lets think about this a sec.. It doesn't change the timing, doesn't change the physical placement of your centershot, or your knock placement. The cables keep your ata the same, so a few cranks of your limb bolts shouldn't matter a whole lot...
but then again, if you drop/raise the dw enough to require a different spine arrow, you may need to make some adjustments to your centershot to compensate...
I think it may be best to set your draw weight first. If it was me, anyways

2011 Onza 3: 70#, 28.25 draw (AMO), 384 gr arrow, 288 fps
2005 Saber: 70#, same arrow, 250 fps
I tune it to the DW I'm going to shoot it, but in most cases that's only 1/2 a turn from max. I have found that after tuning, a full turn or so either way doesn't make any difference to arrow flight but may have to adjust sight pin a little if I'm shooting with sights.
you can tune a bow, but you can't tuna fish.
so, why would you want to tune it at one weight and then change the weight? just wondering.
