    Lol. Yes you can turn the nock on a drop away but on a biscuit you cant as tbe black part is ultra stiff to support arrow. but on a modern bow if you cant clear blazers cock vane up youve got tuning problems.

    Looking at the bow, the fletches look big. I used to have big fletches for indoors shooting on a hoyt and there was a slight clearance issue but nothing I could do bout it. Didnt affect accuracy.

    For a recurve, one fletch perpendicular to the bows riser facing away so that there is minimal interference with the rest and the bow.

    For a compound, it depends on the rest. I use a blade rest so one fletch up, for drop away which is less popular in target archery it doest matter as there is no interference but people will still maintain the same fletch position relative to the nock across all their arrows.

    I am not so familiar with a whisker biscuit but I dont see why orientation matters as all whiskers on the rest are running parallel with the fletches no matter what your orientation.

    The position of the rest (the centre shot) doesnt look too bad as your string seems in line with the bow and the arrow looks like it is basically lined up down the string.

    One obvious thing is it could be you You could be holding the bow and torquing it around so that you are bringing the cables in line with the string.

    If you don't figure it out you may need to have someone look at you shoot. Do you have a front stabiliser? If you do check that it is pointing in the same direction as the arrow when at full draw, it will allow you to check if you are torquing the bow badly.
