Generally, (but not as a hard and fast rule) all that is required with the bow is to go to a slightly higher nock point. Say add 1/8" to 1/4" and probably add a second nock set to the string to go beneath the arrow nock.

However if that doesn't help a noticeable amount right there, you may want to readdress tuning in its entirety. This could be due to some sort of form change.

Retillering should never be "necessary" to make the switch. Unless a bow is a real POS, and truly built wrong, you should always be able to get a one piece bow to tune for the switch. The only consideration being that 3 under on a bow tillered for split may prove to be somewhat louder.

Sure on an ILF bow you get to play with tiller unlike a one piece, and change tiller to suite whether shooting split or 3 under. That ability to make that adjustment enables the shooter to do some finer tuning. You can play with balance of the bow as it is loaded against the bow hand during the draw, and what the bow does upon release.

Oh Hell,
I went the wrong way. I lowered the knocking point trying to adjust for three under.Totally screwed thing up.
I just got two new strings from Rick Barbee in the mail today. I'll set them up with the higher knock point and see how it works.
Thanks :oops:
