IMO I start at 15 yards and if I am close to what I would call a close match on arrow spine move back to 20 and 25 yards.In my testing the further you move back in distance the more the weak or stiff impacts become and can be adjusted for accordingly. Now as Kirk brings up not all broadheads react the same nor do they plane the same verse field points, if your a field archer tune your bareshaft as close to a field point as possible then fletch [ I prefer slightly weak bareshaft]. Hunters may start with the same bareshaft testing but end up way off with broadheads due to planing requiring other adj to brace height/shelve material/ nock height.
Not to get of topic but even paper tuning at 3 different distances it may be possible to get 3 different tears due to shaft paradox.
No right not wrong but what ever you have the most confidence in.
