Tillering is the process of working the limbs of the bow to make them bend equally when pulled to full draw. If a bow has been cut down it usually needs to be retillered and will most likely be a heavier weight but may no longer have the maximum draw the bow once did.

What does "tillering"/"re-tillering" mean? That was mentioned in the ad for this bow as well, but I don't remembering hearing the term before.
