Default Ultra Drop away rest.

I just got an ultra drop away put on my bow. It shoots good feild point groups, but my broadheads are about 6-8 in. high and they tend to fish a little. I have noticed that the fletching of my arrows is hitting the rest even after it has fallen away(lower most fletch). Im assuming this is the cause of my erratic flight patten. How do I fix it.(the fletching hitting the rest). Groups well, about 2-3 in. at 30 yds., but the nocking end of the arrow will be pointing one way or the other. Thanks.

I'm not really familiar with that rest, however, I would assume there is a sensativity setting on it? You could first try to adjust that and see what happens. Also, You could turn your fletchings in such a patter that they have less chance in coming in contact with the rest.

I have my QAD Ultra coming to final rest position 1-1.5" of within full draw. I have not shot broadheads yet, but with paper tuning it gave me almost bullet holes. I actually prefer my paper tuning to produce a slight tear. For me that means my form is more consistent, because I don't have the greatest of shooting form[8D].

I can shoot cock feather down or up, although I am going to shoot it cock feather up.....thats what I am used too. As with any final tuning, you may have to make some minor adjustments with broadheads......nock slightly up or down, etc. In your case I would try raising the nock ever-so-slightly a little bit at a time. I've also found that I did not have to raise my nock higher(nock travel concerns because of a single cam bow). My Martin fusion cam shoots best with my nock 1/8" above center which is the same setting I used with a conventional rest. Many guys have told me they had to raise their nocks quite a bit higher than that.

I use a Muzzy Zero Effect and was initially getting fletching contact and I had to adjust the timing and lower the resting point of the arrow when the bow was not drawn. Once I did that I was shooting bullet holes and my broad heads and filed points grouped right on top of each other jus the way I like them to. Check the timing and initial resting point of your rest.
