My current bow is tillered for split finger off the shelf.
If I shoot 3 under off the shelf, would the bow fire better the way it’s set up to shoot 3 under off an elevated rest?
It just seems to have a little more hand shock shooting 3 under off the shelf and didn’t know if making that adjustment would make a difference.

Can you adjust tiller on your bow? If so play around with 0 and 1/8 negative tiller.

The bow is a three piece takedown but not an ILF. By you asking that question it makes me wonder if I did back out the bottom limb by a couple of turns would that work.
It’s a Morrison Cheyenne so I might send it to Bob and have him convert it to ILF. I have recently seen a bow that was converted and it looks great plus he said performance was awesome.

Raising your arrow rest...hence raising your finger placement...would get you closer to split tiller.

You can try it and see...and put it back if you don't like it.

I would not try backing a couple of turns on any limb not designed to be adjusted.....

The tiller discussion comes up quite often and IMO it just isn't that important--unless we're talking about a self bow or a VERY short glass laminated bow.

All bows have tiller. It usually ranges from 1/4" positive to 1/8" negative.

Think of like this--maybe, to get an idea of the perfect tiller for the individual archer.

Imagine two doors on a wall; now, slam the doors shut. If they slam shut at the same time, there is little noise or vibration. Let one door slam at a different time than the other and you get noise and vibration. The idea is to make adjustments so the doors (limbs) shut at the same time. It's more about timing than actual tiller.

Raising and lowering your nocking point will change the timing; raising and lowering the shelf/rest will change the timing; heeling the grip will change the timing and putting more pressue in the web of your hand will change the timing.

There's too many variables to claim a bow is tillered for split or 3-under, etc. Most times you can simply tune the bow and shoot it without issue.
