Everyone has their own opinion but I for one am a fan of small limb tips. And I like that squared limb tip on what I assume is the bottom limb.

I’m a fan of a point at the top of the limb and rounded at the bottom limb tip. Over the years I’ve requested that from some bowyers but Gregg Coffey does it naturally on his bows. Steve Turay also does it on his bows.

I am not partial either way. Only issue with small tip is using my BW stringer. The pouch is almost to big and there isn’t as much room to push string loop into the nock. That’s why I have a Selway stringer as well. 

Isn’t there something about smaller limb tips making the limbs a little faster? Or is that refer to how much material is used in the tips?

Weight of limb tips is a factor in speed but not as much as one might think.  I did some experiments with a 66" ASL that had pin nocks.  Can't get much lighter than that.  I taped increasing numbers of quarters to the limb tips and shot over a chronograph.   Even with a bit more than one OZ on each tip the speed only fell off 13 or 14 fps.  That's all from memory.  I have the stats archived somewhere and will look them up if its of interest.

You have two strings pulling on the limb tip, one on each side. Wider offers more mechanical leverage to stress one side more than the other, as does uneven notches. You can really see it with a low poundage recurve (wider tips, limbs less resistant to twisting). Deep core/narrow limb tips cover a multitude of sins. So, I like practicing with a low poundage recurve. It exaggerates flaws in form and release. I'm reminded it ain't a chicken-don't choke it and don't pluck it.
