You can put lipstick on your rest and see if it ends up on the vanes. I haven't had good luck with that method. Spray foot poweder on the vanes and shoot them. You will see exactly where the vane is hitting.

Feathers or vanes? If you are using vanes a good indicator is that the vane will wrinkle after several shots. The lipstick suggestion is good, foot powder works also.

Cock vane up. I use a Drop Zone, and that's how I shoot. Also, make sure the timing of the rest is right. If it drops too late, it hasn't fallen out of the way by the time the vanes get there.

my vanes were hitting therisser when i had the cock vane down,,if i move it up it would cause the other side to hit would it not,, but with the cock vane out it hits the arrow holder for the qt2000 which sets on the sight self

If your vanes are actually hitting the riser, I would suspect your problem to be more like the rest not being installed properly.If you have the means to post a pic that would be helpful.

That's what it sounds like to me. I just helped a friend last night with the same problem, we moved the rest away from the riser, paper tuned and he just called me coming from the range and re-siteing in and saidall is well except his arrows are under spined which is the same thing I told him. We used my old arrows by the way for him to paper tune with.
