So for most of my bow setups the general setup is 1/8th inch high if you use a bubble level for your arrow and string at 90 degrees. It does not make sense to me how a single cam, Binary cam and Overdrive Binary cam could have the same nocking point. Can anyone explain to me a more in depth explanation of a more accurate way to get the perfect nocking point for each cam?

I'll generally set it up close to level and throw a couple shots through paper and go from there.

Dual cams like the OD binary systems like a level nock point and your draw stops to hit at the same time. Same with binary cam bows like Strother/Elite systems. Most hybrids like them a little nock high with a little advanced top cam. Single cams typically like a little higher nock point because they don't have quite as level of nock travel. There's no real trick to it. Just tune them and see what they like.

You are correct.
THERE is NO "general setup" that works for everything.

What I do---eyeball it-------paper shoot-----tune from there. What some people do not realize it's not what it is at relax it's what it is at full draw that counts. If it is slightly nock high at relax at full draw it levels out. Where the nock point ends up depends on the bow and rest used.

i usually set all of mine at a 1/8" high with the shaft splitting the berger hole.
then paper tune to find the perfect nocking point for that bow.
i have found different bows shoot the best from level to a 1/4" high.
