i got a 2008 rytera bullet x and i just had to have new limbs put on and a qad drop away rest and i have to set the nock point at 1/2inch high to get this thing to paper tune it uced to paper shoot at 1/16 and now its 1/2 what could be the cause of this and is it ok to shoot it like this?:confused:

Well something can't be right, 1/2" is little high. My Rytera was perfect at 3/16" At the risk of sounding stupid, how high is your nocking point in relation to the center of the burger hole? Also when I paper tune I like to get right up on the paper, only a few inches from my arrow tip at full draw. This does not give the fletchings any chance to correct the arrow flight. I'm using the Blazer vanes an I've found, at least out of my rigs, that if I'm not right up close it will look great through the paper even though I can visually see a little kick. Also what are your specs? Arrow spine, point weight, draw weight, and draw length.

Oh by the way there is no problem in shooting the bow like that. However I think you'll have some problems getting broadheads to fly good.
