Default New Rest Help Needed

Just installed a Whisker Biscuit on my PSE. Upon trying to sight my bow in I've noticed that I am unable to lower my sight, a Cobra Easy-Slide, low enough to set my 30 yard marker. Can anyone help me on this?

Where do you anchor?

Directly under my cheek bone, kisser button in very corner of my mouth, string hitting the tip of my nose (hope that makes sense).

the problem is you are anchoring a little too high you need to anchor your index nuckle just under your ear you will also have to move your peep up then you will be able to bring your whole sight up. is this making any sence to you?

What kind of sight? Is there a gang adjustment that would allow you to unbolt the whole works and move it down? How are your groups? Are they strung out verticle at all? Perhaps your nocking point is way low. I'm not sure you anchor too high. Just under your cheek bone should be plenty low. Close your eyes and come to your anchor. Relax and get comfortable. Where is your peep when you open your eyes? High or low?

Thanks for the responses.
Bigpapa - Are you saying that my kisser button and peep are too low? You may be on to something.
Nub - It's a Cobra Easy-Slide and it's adjusted as low as it will go. I'm pretty happy with my groups (usually 1" @ 20).
Last night I finally had to put my bow up and walk away. New day, fresh start, more patience.
Thanks again,
heel
