A bow builder once told me that he was a hunter and as much as he liked shooting 3 under, he would shoot split finger because it was the quietest. At the time, I did not know any better. Actually quite a shame that a reknown bow builder had not learned his trade. His thinking was a result of "living inside the box". Always having done it "this way". I understand that maybe his market or the style he promoted may have wanted it "that way", but his comment was not marketing but rather lack of knowledge. So, I'm pondering tiller, thinking about noise and handshock, thinking of where/what is the noise. I may have even read something along these lines, maybe David Sosa's article on tiller. We often think about the string at the shot having a bit of slack or temporary un even pressure as the lower limb catches up to the top limb, caused by 3 under. I would love to see this slow motion. But my main thoughts at this time is in regards to the noise/hand shock felt by someone shooting a tiller not suitable for the shooting style whether 3 under or split. I would like to discuss this. What it seems to me is that both limbs are arriving at "slam shut" at different times. And the unseen rebound timing is different. If they arrive at slam shut at the same time and the rebound is at the same time, the limbs or rebound would tend to counter each other. Now since I'm not a bow builder, I would like to see if those in the know could validate or clarify anything I've said.
