Default Sight alignment..arrow, peep, rest, sight pins...

In the past with all my two cam/eccentric bows the arrow, rest and sight pins line up when I hold the bow out at arms length with an arrow nocked and sitting on the rest.

With my new single cam bow the sight pins are very much to the left of the arrow tip when held out the same way. However, after following the complete Easton tuning guide right through to broadhead tuning I can say the bow is shooting EXTREMELY well. Broadheads and fieldpoints are flying right to the same spot like hey are supposed to. The sight alignment is what annoys me.

Shooting a Winn C-12 release off the string, Tru-Glo sight, Whisker Biscuit rest.

Any suggestions, or is this just the way some bows shoot?

It' s torque. I did the old mirror trick aiming the bow at myself in the mirror. It appears that it' s caused from just a tad bit long of draw length. Richard Newberry is sending me the next smaller module to try out. I' m also slapping my arm just a touch, which also indicates the too long thing. I had the same problem with my previous bow when I tried to add a string loop and increased my draw length too much.

One month later with a new string, correct draw length module and properly spined arrows and things are totally different. The site line up right down the middle of the arrow just like I figured they should.

Also, I am shooting a string D loop. That made a BIG difference.
