I went barebow last April so this is all still new to me. I just reread DASs explanation of tiller and thought I would say what works for me.Thought I would show my way for indoor tuning. As this was my first indoor season I tuned the bow as I did last year, for outdoors. At 9m in my garage I set the nocking height by shooting my 70m distance (split fingered) with my ACCs, till I get the bareshaft in with the fletched arrows. Then get point on gold using spring pressure. That means at 90m I aim off to allow for my lighter arrows. So I tuned the same way for indoors using my 20yd crawl of 12 stitches, about 2.25in. Nocking point height is a bit different. Our bows are always going to be out of tune. Except for indoors! Just had a practice at a Vegas. Shot 504 with a miss and six 6s, so room for improvement. Thought I might give a bit of info on equipment. Sky riser, ACC 620 spine, 27.5in, Sky Art 800 spine, 26.5in, HEX4 38lb on fingers, 66in bow. BH 7.75in outdoor NP 7/16ths, indoor NP below 5/16ths. Our Vegas round is 60 arrows on a 40cm triple face at 18m, see below. I know this is different, and probably wrong, but indoors my bow is quiet, good arrow flight, and pretty accurate. Outdoors my FITA70, 72 arrows at 70m, was 517. That was 4 months after going barebow.

Just a quick update, received my new Border CXB limbs, 32lb 66in. Put them on my riser, and with my string and pressure button set up for my HEX4s split fingered and set up for 90m and 70m, shot 12 arrows to get a sight mark for an 80cm target at 50m which meant 3 under with a 2 stitch crawl, proceeded to score 545 with 6 dozen arrows. Even had a 55 for a 6 arrow end using my 800 spined Sky Art arrows. Doug
