    nock placement?

    Do you lose anything if your noch point is farther away from the center of your serving, like speed or will your accuracy suffer?



    Reason I`m asking is I adjusted my fall away rest so it would sit level with the shelf but the arrow is higher than the hole now.

    Answer is it depends on how you put your bow hand on the grip
    and
    it depends on how your bow is shooting
    and
    it depends on how you currently have your cams timed
    and
    it depends on where you have your d-loop on the bowstring.



    There are only so many ways to adjust the bow system.


    The arrow rest can move forward or back (long body arrow rest).
    The arrow rest can move left or right (centershot).
    The arrow rest can move up or down.


    The d-loop can move up the bowstring.
    The d-loop cam move down the bowstring.


    It's all about finding the balance point for the d-loop position.

    If let say, we put the d-loop so it was only 6-inches away from the top cam,
    we have too little bow string above the d-loop
    and
    we have too much bow string below the d-loop.

    No way will it work.


    What you want to accomplish
    is to find that spot on the d-loop
    so that the amount of bowstring above the d-loop
    and
    the amount of bowstring below the d-loop
    has the two cams
    or the top metal thingy working together
    with the bottom metal thingy.



    That's the whole idea behind creep tuning.


    So, let's forget about terminology,
    and play with the arrow rest height.

    See how your arrows are grouping.
    Leave your d-loop where it is.

    Try your arrow rest a skosh higher.
    See how you like your groups.

    Try your arrow rest a skosh lower.
    See how you like your groups.



    If you want to experiment more.

    Try your d-loop a skosh lower.
    Repeat the arrow rest height experiments.


    Some will say it's too much trouble to do all these
    experiments to find out if you can get your groups
    just a little bit tighter.


    Well,
    only one way to find out.
