I have a 2010 Bengal, wondering what I should set my nock height at? Iím shooting Full Metal Jackets 400 29" . 57 Lbs. Reason I ask, Iím getting a little side to side wiggle ; just enough to drive ya nuts, know what I mean ! The center shot looks good, did a walk back 5, 10 , 15, 20 , 25 yds. Didnít paper tune it. Thanks

Welcome to the forum! My nock point is a little under 1/8" high. Just a thought how tight is your arrow nock to the string? If it is too snug it will cause strange arrow flight. Arrows should nock easily and come off the same.

welcome to the forum. Listen to Hutch. He's smart! So,if the nocks are snug,whats the fix? Mine have an audible click when nocking and take a fairly hard press of the thumb to un-nock. My arrows from the Cheetah are doing it(side to side).actually,its kickin tail left. I don't remember it doing that before I separated the string and put in cat whiskers yesterday.

Polaris754, I've wondered the same thing. C'mon,bro. Inquiring minds want to know.

I think it is a mod to his Polaris but I am not sure.

Reserve the center serving, tighter or a smaller diameter serving. They are not to be too loose either. The arrow should not be able to twist the string when it is rotated around the string. In some cases I have seen the arrow nock stay in place and the arrow go sailing.

If I remember correctly from his original RH stage 2 post, its robinhood stage 2 for the 2nd time he telescoped a pair. :)

Makes sense to me. Good job Polaris!
