It is all in the tillering of the bow. If a bow is tillered for three under it's useless to try split finger. When I purchase a bow I have them ship it unfinished (some will not send them this way, which means I have to sand the finish and the limbs[:@]).
I have many bows that shoot perfect for me and many have different tillers. I get a bow, shoot it and sand the limbs until the tiller gets to whatI need. Somewhere between 1/8" to 5/16" shooting the same style.

The tiller has to match the shooting style in order to shoot well.

That's true, ewolf, but most bows I've had shot equally well with either split or 3-under by simply adjusting the nock point. I've had to sand the snot out of a few to get them to shoot 3-under though.

Ok, guys, how do you know if a bow is tilled for 3 under?

If I set my nock point 1/2" over center and start to pull the bow back, the bottom limb flips out first. If I set the nock point almost 1/8" over center (basically bottom of nock point is dead center to rest), then when I start to draw, the bow limbs stay pretty even but I definatly get a high flip from my arrow. I set the nock point again to 1/2" over center and it goes away.
