Default Rest question

O.k. guys last night I decided to shoot a couple of my old Muzzy 4 blades 100 gr. even though I have been planning on switching to the MX3.I am shooting them anywhere from 3 - 5 in. left, while I'm shooting field tips dead center.I'm not sure where to go from here.I have read up on the different tuning methods. I just don't know which one would be the best place to start.

Here are the specs: Bow: '07 Bowtech Tomcat, 63#, 27" draw, WB rest, Cobra Viper sight, shooting Rebel 6075 forward weighted and 100 gr tips

Also, I have a Drop Zone rest from my old bow that I elected to not use in place of the factoryinstalled WB. I don't want this aspect to turn into a huge debate, but would it be in my best TUNING interest to switch them?

Any help will appreciated. I would like to keep it simple and most of keep from just moving my sites.

I'm not going to offer any opinion on the rest itself. It doesn't much matter.

If you want your broadheads to hit the same hole as your field points, and they're flying left right now, you need to move your rest to the right. Small increments, like 1/64" at a time. Just walk 'em over like that till they hit together, then adjust your sights to the new point of imact. Make sure they keep grouping together at longer distances though, just to make sure.

If I'm shooting left wouldn't I have to move my sight to the left? That really isn't what I want to do. That would put the bh's on target but then the field tips would be off to the right.
