wolf, I went to 3under about 15-20yrs ago. Most of my bows don't have the ability to change tiller… and I do just fine. With the couple DAS bows I have I found that (quite coincidently) zero tiller is just fine on them as well…. Hope that helps.

PS- how ya aim isn't a factor in shooting effectively 3under… other than it lower your point on yardage.

I agree with the others, all of my bows are tillered split but work fine for three under (I've tried it). Would they work better if they were tillered even? I don't know, I shoot split...;)

I've read bowyers say if they know the customer is a three under shooter they send the bow out with zero/even tiller.

Mine all shoot fine three under and some are tiller for split others even. It might be a little noisier at first but easily tuned out with cat whiskers etc

I also shoot split and set tiller even, hold and groups are better for me.
On a bow order they ask (tiller split finger or 3 under) I call the bowyer and tell them even tiller, if they ask which I shoot still, the order is over.
Not being an ass I just know what I prefer and if the bowyer wants to build a bow that is a positive tiller just because I shoot split finger, that bowyer isn't for me.
Just to clarify I placed an order (see put on list) for a 3 piece takedown, non ilf bow.
I called the bowyer for choice of wood and such, he asked split or 3 under, told him I want an even tiller, his response "no problem" now the wait begins.

I shoot 3/8" positive tiller on my ILF bows and I shoot split....seems like the bow just holds in the dot better without creeping higher.


I've shot all and right now it's 3/8" for me.

Generally, bows not even tiller still shoot three under, but a bit higher nock point to compensate. Not a big deal. You want to set nock point for best flight anyway.

What wstrayer said.

Any bow will change tiller as you adjust your nock point.

My one piece bow has it's nock point around a quarter inch higher than my three piece bows, which in effect gives it the same tiller as the three piece bows.
