    Fletching and Nock orientation

    Hi folks... I really have no idea when it comes to to technical details of an arrow. This might sound stupid but I am concerned.

    I used to buy 4" vanes both aluminum or carbon arrows.

    I have 1 bow that uses the Muzzy Zero Effect rest (drop down) and 1 with the Whisker Biscuit rest.

    I just recently purchased the new arrows with 2" blazing vanes. Now I am a bit concern about the orientation of the fletching alignment with the nock.

    The usual is the single unique color is always the top when nocking on the bow. Now with these new 2" blazing vanes, its slightly offset like the usual. I am sure this will hit the bottom part which has the stiff bristles. As my knowledge using the Whisker Biscuit rest requires the top fletch oriented to the top.



    Am I missing something, is it just my new set of arrows are not right.

    Thanks...

    You can twist each nock in the arrow to get perfect up and down alignment of the cock vane if you are using carbon arrows.
