I am reading conflicting things about paper tuning. I have a right tear of about 1/2 inch when I am paper tuning. (right tear meaning the nock/fletching end is out to the right of the point).

Easton says this tear is uncommon for release shooters but i can move the rest to the left or i might have a clearance problem.

thebowman.com says for this tear I need to move my rest to the right.

Searching previous threads its hard to tell what people are talking about, ie right vs left tears.

So what gives? Im going to go out there and try some different things but just wanted to know where I should start trying.

Rest is a trophy taker shaky hunter and i use a release. Thanks

I am using an HHA vertical pin sight and my groups are good at all distances, no variation left to right. I am probably overstressing paper tuning anyway since my arrows are grouping good. I think ill go tomorrow and try moving it both ways and see what happens. thanks for the suggestion though.

thanks, the easton chart is what i was looking at before. I moved my rest about 1/16 to the left and was shooting great holes. I am shooting at 65 lbs with cx 300's at 29" and once i had those tuned i used a couple of cx 4560's at 29" (weaker spine) and they made about an inch right tear (fletching to the right of point). I dont get that but the cx 300's are shooting great for me, which is about 1/2" high tear. Thanks
