Well, I've allowed and sought bending in the fades, particularly on staves I thought were to short. They've turned out to be some of my best bows.
But like I said way back, it can be a tough tiller.

I agree with Pat and delay working the fades to the last. I almost always come in over poundage, the fade adjustment is a good place to shed a few pounds.
