    Is this ment to happen?

    Hey team, having had my new bow about a month iv noticed that my arrows veins are hitting my string, is this normal or has it been set up wrong? I don't notice any bad accuracy until shooting over 30 yards then they seem to be flying all over the show... any advice is appreciated

    I thought that one of the vanes of the fletching is supposed to be a different colour and point directly away from the bow, but that pic doesn't look like that

    Traditionally yes, although I was taught that it was different for a whisker biscuit as the black whiskers that support the arrow shaft are harder than the brown ones so the vanes face one vertically up and two either side of the black whiskers to get even pass-through.

    Turn your nock till the vanes clear, and shoot to test. Mine work fine like that

    Only on a recurve or traditional bow, compound cock up, bow needs adjusting.

    I would frequently have recurve shooters trying to correct my fletch orientation when I shot compound at the range.

    No if you were shooting compound in the 80s and early 90s most shelfs on the bows were barely cut past centre (as you would know) and you had to shoot fletch out. But when you have fletching hitting these days its time to adjust cam lean etc
