Vanes hitting fall away rest

Due to a nice yellow streak on my fall-away rest, there is no doubt that my indicator vane is hitting my fall-away rest as it leaves my bow.  Confused Have you guys experienced this problem?  What was the cause?  What did you do to fix it? 

I will try to find a good local bow shop in the next few weeks to help me out, but I was hoping to hear from others on this forum first.

Thanks!

its a pretty easy problem to

its a pretty easy problem to fix. just put the arrow on the string and twist the arrow until all of the vanes clear the rest. i hope this helps.

I have tried shooting with

I have tried shooting with the indicator vane up and the indicator vane down, and the vane(s) still hit the rest.  It seems to have less of an effect on the shot shooting with the indicator vane down.

I think he means to rotate

I think he means to rotate the nock just a little bit. It might look like it's going to clear before you release but with the offset the arrow rotates slightly by the time it reaches the rest. It's a matter of getting the timing right.

That's how I understand it anyway.

I'm not an expert on this at

I'm not an expert on this at all but way back when I was still shooting that is why I went to using no offset as I could not get mine to clear any other way.

It may be that the fall a way

It may be that the fall a way is not time correctly.  I do not know what rest you are using but mine has a rest string attached to my bow strings and that is what drops my rest.  If that string is not the right length or postions correctly it will cay my rest to drop drop fast enough or far enouh.....it could also be the rest boucning back ever so slightly.  A good bow shop should have the problem fixed in a matter of a few minutes.

Vains

Your vain direction/position should never matter,ever when shootin any drop away. Thus the reason behind shooting a fall/drop away. Your timing is off somewhere, or your loop is not in the right place. You deff need to get to a good  archery tech. Good luck.

I tend to make things more

I tend to make things more difficult than they are, but this is more along the lines of what I was thinking.  Thanks for the response.
