Well of course it does.....get on the scale and weigh yourself....now cut your leg off and see if you still weigh the same

How can a company list the shaft weight at the "cut length" when everyone cuts their shafts at different lengths?

you should be able to find grains per inch (gpi) on all the manufacturer's websites for every shaft they make. then you multiply that times your arrow's length.
