I had a quick question when it comes to tuning a drop away rest. I watched this video ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZK7O_s1Rq8&feature=related and it is interesting. I'm wondering for those of you that shoot with a drop away rest, how high is your knocking point? With a drop away should it still be an 1/8" or are people putting the arrow even with the rest? Just trying to get some feedback on this subject since many of us don't have access to a slow motion camera to see what our bows are doing. Thanks

My bow tunes with the arrow sitting dead level with the rest in it's up position.

Depends on the bow design as to high. But I've found most tune nock high without drawing it. Once the bow is at full draw it will be level.
Do you recommend nock high even with a short axle to axle length like the z7 Extreme? I'm not sure how that would effect where you would place the knock if at all.

1/8" high for all mine.

You can expect the Z7 to run roughly 1/4" - 3/8" high nockpoint with a standard drop away rest depending on arrow spine. The bow wants less spine than you think.

Single cam bows tend to be 1/8" to 1/4" nock high. You'll notice downward nock travel when the bow comes to full draw and the arrow levels out.

Binary and dual cam bows tend to be 0" to 1/8" nock high, mostly. Just have to make sure the cams are timed at full draw before you start setting your nock height, otherwise you'll see substantial nock travel while drawing the bow.
