I am still relatively new to archery and I have recently noticed several people who use kisser buttons. I have never used one but thought it might be a good idea. Upon installation of the button, I realized that in order to use it correctly I would have to dratsically change my form. This has now opened a Pandora's box of questions and I do not have a good local pro shop to seek answers from. Any and all advice/answers will be greatly appreciated.
Does it matter where my anchor point is? When I anchor my index finger rests just under my earlobe. To use the kisser I have to move my anchor point to below my chin. Is my current anchor point incorrect? I have noticed that my arrows tail slightly when shot but I have a perfect bullet hole when I paper tune. Does my anchor point create my tuning problems?
I also fletch my own arrows. I use the blazers vanes and have been using the blazer fletching jig. This jig sets the vanes farther back towards the nock than any other I have seen. I have just assumed that was the way it should be, but do the vanes need to be farther forward? Is this the reason for my arrows tailing? Should I get a different jig? I have also been told to not have a seperate color for the off vane because that is what is creating the "appearance" of the arrow tailing in flight. Is this true?
One final question. What arrow wieght should I be using? I shoot a 60# bow with a 29.5 draw length. Most arrow charts that I have seen put me right on the fence between two different arrow weights, 4560 and 6075 or 350 to 400 grains. I shoot a 100 grain rage 2 blade when I am hunting. I have just replaced the strings on my bow and I am in the process of retuning so now would be the best time to make any necessary changes. Again, any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

its honestly hard to answer all of these questions. the best way for you to get any answers is to post a few pictures of yourself at fulldraw from different angles so we can all see your form etc.
