The bow is a Hoyt Carbon Defiant. QAD HDX rest. A guy I know is shooting this bow and runs odd vane out because he uses it as a reference point for his anchor. We’ve tried to time the rest and it helped nothing. The rest centershot is set at 13/16” and is perfectly level. The vane pointing down at an angle is catching the launcher. What can be done?

Turn the vanes so they clear, and find a different reference point would be my fix.
Perfectly level, maybe it needs a bit of a high nock point.

Raise nock point or lower rest, should not tune with a flat arrow, may need to check cam timing as well.

I second this. My defiant has clearance issues with blazers. I twisted the nock so i had clearance. Dont worry about your vane being straight up, 12oclock.

Agree^^^, you shouldnt use a vane as an anchor point either. Especially if its making contact with the rest because of it.

Cock vane up and fix the rest timing and you should be fine. If it hits the cables on the Hoyt then turn cock vanes to 11:00 just so it clears.

This isn’t my bow, I’m just asking for him. The arrow is nocked with the odd vane out. So one vane points slightly down

must be an old finger shooter.............I would rotate the vane, but I would definitely make sure the rest is in fact timed.......that would be where I would put most of the focus on first .

Understand, but there is good advice here. First his anchor point is too high, second his nock point is probably too low, third and most important his timing of the rest is not correct. If it were he wouldn't get contact.
