If I lower the poundage on my bow from 60lb to 50Lb, will I need to retune (paper tune) it???
Thanks

using the same arrows? if so do those arrows match the spine chart for that new draw weight?

i would still run through some kind of tunin check just to make sure.

I wouldn't fool with paper tuning it. I would broadhead tune it and make sure the broadheads are flying the same as field points, then resight.

The arrow charts say i'm fine.
I was just wondering if I dropped it, if it would affect the tune of the bow??

if you will tell me your complete setup i will run it on the On Target 2 program and tell you for sure if the spine is correct. The arrow charts are sometimes misleading. Or simply give me a call im in Greeneville my num is 423 552 4544

thanks Mark

You can drop it to where it feels comfortable to shoot and see how well the bow shoots . I shoot my bow (70 lb max) at 65 lbs. I tune it at that draw weight , and my arrows are correctly spined for that draw weight .

I shoot pretty good at 60lb but I think I might be more accurate around 55lb. I might drop it and see if I can tell a difference.
