I get where you are going, but from the testing I have done so far, I believe the spine will be at the same angle down the shaft. What I think is at issue is finding the best (being easy, accurate, and repeatable) method of during the shaft's weakest (or strongest) spine side (or angle position).

Sorry to report, but I have not had the time to play with capturing an arrow just as it is shoved forward by the string to see if it bends on the same side as indicated from spine testing.
