Default found out some new info last night !

when shooting at the local archery place. i found out why my arrows had a small angle to it. one was that the rest was too much to the left and the other part was from the offset on the factory vanes caused the vanes to hit my rest everytime i shot. also i also noticed it could be from the noks moving.

That's always been a problem for me as well Quilly. I shot a TM hunter style up until last week and was ALWAYS checking my vanes to make sure the cock vane was clear and twisting the nock and obsessing<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> You wanna know how I fixed it??? I bought a Muzzy. I never look at my feathers now and had them fletched all one color.

As far as your rest being off...you'll always, no matter what rest, have to set up your centershot. Maybe get a bow square and a centershot tool. They're pretty inexpensive. The one I just got has 2 long allen wrench posts attached to rubber tubing with a little yardstick looking thing halfway btw. I used these to set up 3 different rests already and cut my time in half.Good Luck

Switch to a fallaway rest and you'll eliminate your fletch contact problem. I noticed an immediate tightening of my groups when I put the Trophy Taker on my bow.
