    If you taper the limbs more on your next bow you'll be able to get that stacking down below an acceptable limit, say 3 pounds per inch of over draw, which is widely considered acceptable.

    taper the ends of the limbs more or the overall limb more (the tips are pretty flat)? Time to make another one I guess
