    I'm nopt going to go into a long disertation as to why, but normally your sight will be to the left of the string/arrow/rest when sighted in properly. Very seldom will everything be in the same alignment.

    It has to do with side torque created by the cable guard/slide pulling to the right. Got to counteract it somehow. BINGO----------sight to the left of center. Sometimes as much as 1/4" as your eye sees it. So do yourself a favor and just move the sight.

    You don't move your rest. Your rest is your center shot. As bfisher said, most everyone will have the sight pin (s) to the left of the string (if right handed).

    Don't forget, moving the sight to the left will make your arrow hit to the right but moving your rest to the left will make your arrow hit LEFT.

    follow the arrow with the sight, oppisite with the rest, but try to keep the rest in the "center" of the bow in relation to the string. i've also heard too long of a drawlength will cause left fliers.
