I am considering brewing smaller BIAB batches for testing ? probably about 3 gallon or so.

Is the BS tool for scaling a recipe reasonably accurate and does it produce a good facsimile of the larger recipe?

I realize that this is sort of a vague question but opinions are solicited.

If you are brewing you small batches on the same equipment you use for full batches it should work just fine.

Actually, I was going to downsize the brew pot -- from 16 gallon to about 10 gallon, possibly a skosh smaller. 

Think I need a new profile??

Only if you find out that your process losses (trub, boil off rate) are different from your original profile.  For ease of switching between batch sizes, I would recommend copying the old profile and renaming it so that any changes you make will not affect anything you want to make with your old profile.
