Normally they are up. But, if an arrow doesn't fly like the others, you can rotate the nock a little. That sometimes will get your groupings closer together. Just make sure your vanes clear your rest and riser.
With dropaways you really want it up. It just provides extra clearance if it does not drop fast enough. But there is always the exception. If you like it better down, and is working and not contacting. By all means do it.
OK, now I think I'm not going crazy! I first tried feather down and there was just a little arrow kick after release. I then flipped the arrow cock feather up and now they are shooting like bullets! I guess I was just too used to the 2 pronged rest I have used for the lat 15 years. Thanks for your input!!
I shoot cock feather out because I need the extra clearance from the cables shooting blazer vanes.If I torque it just a bit it was too close for comfort with the cock feather up.I switched it to cock feather out and tested numerous times with no contact.
