    Just wondering if cock vane goes up or down on these rests? Should be spending time tuning it this next week so asking all questions now about it.

    why cock vane always up? who say’s. i’ve always shot cock vane down and have had no issues. i shoot out to 80 yds practicing for a steel plate shoot every year and arrows fly fine.

    in general terms,cock fletch up gives more clearance because there is no vane pointing straight down to hit the pivot point of the rest,and most drop rests have an open top design so there isn’t an issue for clearance, usually. there are some setups(rest/bow) that require a slight adjustment to get optimal clearance.so,it’s not written in stone but,in most cases it will perform best up.

    Because you get contact no matter what. :p

    I fletch my arrows with the stiffest part of the spine flexing upwards. Which means the cock vane also lines up with the stiff side of the spine.
