Is it typical to have a bareshaft that flies great when loosed from a gloved hand to show weak when a tab is used in gloves place. This has been consistant with all of my bow/arrow combinations ever since I noticed the difference.

I'd say YES. The tab generally allows better finger movement than most gloves, so less interference with the string as it goes.

Hypothetically speaking, does this mean that changing from a tab to a glove might "fine tune" a slightly weak spined arrow?

If a bare shaft flies weak when shot from a tab, but good when shot from a glove, then I suppose that could be a way of fine-tuning. However, everybody I know has strong preferences between a tab and a glove, and would prefer to fine tune their arrows some other way.

It's interesting when things like that make a difference.

Last weekend after an indoor round I switched to my 3-D bow which I shoot with a glove. I went back to shoot my indoor target bow which I shoot with a tab but forgot to take the glove off. Took me a few arrows to figure why they were diving low and left until I realized the problem.
