    Default positioning the nock locator

    If I plan on shooting an X-200 with a D-loop as the nock locator (nocking points) do I want to set it so the arrow is 90deg to the bowstring or do I set it high (the general consensus seems to be 1/8")? I understand the reasoning behind setting the locator so that the arrow is not 90deg to the string for 3finger-draws, mechanical pulls without a D-loop, and compounds etc. but I just don't get why some suggest the arrow shouldn't be at 90deg as a starting point when setting up a trad bow in this configuration. thanks.

    I played around years ago with shooting my DH recurve with a release, both with a d-loop and with the release on the string under the arrow.
    For me - using a d-loop worked best with the nock point at 90 deg.
    With the release on the string - it worked better at about 1/8" high.
    I ended up going back to just using a glove and still shoot it that way.

    Thanks for the info. Looking forward to having some fun, and learning something about archery, with the new Martin.
