First, a nock right tear for a RH Compound shooter normally means the centershot is too close to the riser.
Right Tear: Mechanical Release Aid (CR) To correct (page 7 Easton Arrow Tuning and Maintenance Guide):
Move the arrow rest to the left
moving the rest to the left in small increments
until the right tear is eliminated.
2. Make sure the arrow has adequate clearance past the
cable guard and cables.
3. Make sure the bow hand is well relaxed to eliminate
excessive bow hand torque.
Secondly, when a bow begins to suddenly change the POI, that is an indication of something changing, and perhaps something seriously, dangerously going wrong:
- The peep height has slipped downward or the D-Loop has slipped upward. - The rest centershot could have slipped or the timing cord stretched. Either one could make the arrow produce a nock high right tear. In the case of the timing cord there would be fletch contact. Check with spray powder, etc. - The rest mounting arm could have come loose and the timing cord would pull the back of the rest downward, effectively raising the nock height, making arrow shoot low and throwing bow out of tune. - The sight could have been bumped or come loose but that usually makes the arrows shoot high, not low.
- Strands in string are breaking under serving. Usually the peep will rotate slightly as well. Occasionally, lumps or thin spots can be seen in the serving, but if the breakage is at the nock point, there will be no visible damage. - Limb Problem. For low arrow POI, the lower limb may be cracking or splintering. Rarely, a limb bolt could be stripping out. Inspect closely, use a dry cotton ball rubbed over limb to detect small slivers, examine axle bolt holes under good light to detect cracking (sometimes cracks at the bolt hole can only be seen when the bow is drawn).
... hope this helps.
