On my hunting bow with a 1" crawl, I ended up with a 1/8 negative tiller. Every bow and shooter will be a little different. You just have to play with it and see what works best for you.

On my Ilf setup I am running just over a 1/8" inch negative tiller

I usually find somewhere between 1/8" and 1/4" negative tiller too.
Another thing I find (maybe something to do with my form) is that I switch the top limb to the bottom, and vice versa.

I find I get a much better tune.

Start at even tiller and progressively start to go more negative and see how the bow reacts. I normally set up my brace height first before starting to play with tiller.
