Default Limb Length ~ Draw Weight

Anybody have an idea of about how much weight I' d pick up on my longbow if I cut an inch off each limb? I' ve changed my form and shooting style which dropped my draw length down to 30" and I' d like to cut my bow down from 68" to 66" , if the draw length won' t go thru the roof. Just looking for a ballpark figure. I know nobody can tell exactly.

Just talked to Marc, and he said as long as you don' t reach the stacking point, you could expect a gain of around 10%.
