Default Fletching Alignment and WB B2

I have a question regarding how I should align my arrow's fletching when shooting through the new WB B2. Should the fletching not pass through the black bristles on the bottom of the rest or does it matter. Should the cock feather be pinting up? If I change the position of the cock feather each time, will I be less consistant than if I always shoot with the cock feather facing up?

I shoot mine with the cock feather about 10 or 11 o'clock. Just to the left of straight up but not where it will hit the QS opening on the side. I don't know if you have the QS biscuit or not but this works for me. 5-shot has done testing on the new WB and he said to set the vanes up where they don't pass through the black bristles.

shoot with the index up this way your fletch will miss the harder brissles

Thanks for your input. I will definately start shooting with the cock feather straight up to avoid the fletchings hitting any of the black bristles.
Thanks Again!

Ideally, you don't want to shoot through the thicker black bristles, but the cock feather does not have to pass in the same spot for each arrow. It is best to turn your nocks 1/4 turn at a time, on each arrow until it groups best. This procedure is more important when using carbons, than it is for alumunum arrows. After you do this, load it so none of the fletching passes through the black bristles.
