Default Help setting up blade rest

Hope someone can help. I put on a TT SS Pro rest on my Maxxis 35 on Saturday. It has a 0.010" narrow blade on it. I'm shooting 26.5" GoldTip Ultra Light Pros with a 120gr glue in point, pin nocks and 2" vanes. I shoot 1 fletch up and am getting contact from the lower right vane on the blade. Where do I start to get rid of the contact, I'm new to blade rests. I can post pictures tonight if that would help?

Thanks in advance.

Clayton

Set the blade at between 30 and 35 degrees, and adjust for a slightly high and left tear if you are right handed..

I will take a file and cut the blade down till no contact also rotate my arrow to get clearance
