HELP IF YOU CAN - Arrow Rest Issue

I shoot the Trophy Ridge Revolution rest; I've noticed there's one vane on my arrows that have this black streak on them. Doesn't appear to affect shot placement but with a drop away rest, I'm sure this isn't supposed to be. This week I re did the fletching on my arrows (10 of them) took 4 and did some shooting and noticed after only about 4 shots there was that mark. I'm clueless as to what it could be. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully the pics will help. In the first pic you can see the mark on the orange vane. I'm in the process of taking off that horrible felt, don't like the way it lays. The bow is a G5 Quest Rogue (2012 model)

Thanks

Re: HELP IF YOU CAN - Arrow Rest Issue

you can try putting the cock vane (white) up. That should help if there is a clearance issue. Try spraying some foot powder on the prongs of the rest and see if any of that transfers to the vanes.

Good Luck

Re: HELP IF YOU CAN - Arrow Rest Issue

the advice you got above is very good. turning the cock vane may likely fix your issue. is there a way to tune the timing of that rest with the cord placement on the cable? if it isn't the cock vane, i'd suspect timing of the rest dropping. sorry, best i can offer without the bow in my hands.

Re: HELP IF YOU CAN - Arrow Rest Issue

When I initially set it up I started out with the clock vane up. Problem was the vane was clipping the riser. I'll try the powder trick. And I'll also try again with cook vane up. Will let you guys know the outcome either way. I'm also going to shoot an email to trophy Ridge and see what I get from them.

Thanks!

Re: HELP IF YOU CAN - Arrow Rest Issue

I'm no expert but if your vanes are hitting the riser your center shot is way off

Re: HELP IF YOU CAN - Arrow Rest Issue

I also have a Quest Rogue, and I'd be willing to bet the vanes are rubbing one of the cable strings and not the rest. Turn the cock vane up like others have said, but then look directly down the arrow from the string and see if it looks like the vane closest to the cables has clearance. The pro at the shop who set me up showed me how the Rogue cables don't have alot of clearance from the arrow vanes. All you have to do is turn the nock slightly so that the cock vane is more at like a 45 degree angle then straight up and down, and the vanes will clear the cables. I'll try to take a pic of my setup later to explain it better.

Re: HELP IF YOU CAN - Arrow Rest Issue

Like others have said, I would try cock vane up and even turn it about a 1/4 inch cock vane toward the riser to give you more clearance from your cable and riser. Then I would walk back tune it at 20, 30, and 40 yards just to make sure your rest doesn't need to come out away from the riser. Also your rest looks a tad low to me, with the rest in the up position your arrow should be level and close to centered on your berger button hole.

The older I get the better I was.

I couldn't remember what it was the vane was hitting (over 50 memory issue, lol) I'll check position of everything as you said as well as check relationship of arrow to Berger hole position. I learned something today I must say, had to look up what the Berger hole was. I'll let y'all know the results later today.

Thanks a bunch!

Re: HELP IF YOU CAN - Arrow Rest Issue

Checked position of the arrow on the rest in regard to the Berger hole, looks to be ok

Checked vane position like it was suggested, turning the cock vane to about 11:00, have clearance from the cables, not enough time for powder check today. Will hit that tomorrow.

Thanks again

Not quite sure which way to go here, seems to be a very fine line.
