    At what point does the arrow start to rotate? I am haveing a problem with my down Fletch hitting something and it looks like its hitting the left prong on my drop away but I wouldnt think the arrow would be rotating that soon but I dunno I think it might be hitting the bottom of the rest. One thing is for sure its hitting something.:frusty:

    Get your self a can of spray on foot powder and put it on the arrow rest and shelf. Also you may put some on the arrow shaft itself. (around the fletching area) Now go out and shoot it. Tellus what you find, if there is contact it will be very evident.

    As long as your brace height is less than 9", the arrow should not spin until after it completely leaves the bow. This is based on discussions with bow manufacturers that have access to high speed camera equipment.

    Tomorrow is my Monday so let the long ol workweek begin. As soon as I get a chance I will break out the Micatin and give the XT a good ol coat. I know its hitting something because my down fletch keeps getting ruffled. Before I went to the 2.25 I had 4" plastifletch with a green down and started noticing my left prong was getting a green tint. I am pretty sure that its hitting the rest but i wanna no why and how to fix it. If i get a chance I will shoot it tomorrow thank yall
