    Default Question in arrow leveling ?

    When leveling the arrow with the berger hole, does the arrow have to be perfectly inline of the middle of the berger hole. Or can it be a little above or a little below center.

    I get the rest as close to the shelf as I can, without getting fletching contact.

    On most of my bows, the entire berger hole is visible above the arrow shaft.

    With the style rest this bow has, the lowest we can go is the line of the bottom of the berger hole.

    Default Question in arrow leveling ?

    Rule of thumb has always been; center of arrow shaft intersecting the berger and never have the center of the shaft be higher than the top of the berger hole.

    Still, as long as the arrow (vanes) can clear the shelf I suppose below the berger hole would work. Problem would be if a something pointed to move the rest further down.

    And then I've seen people set up the rest and nock so the arrow is above the berger hole. I can't say either above or below gave good results as I've never tried it.

    Berger holes= the taped holes in the riser just above the arrow shelf, used to attach the arrow rest. It's ok to ask, we're here to answer.

    G'day Hutch. When setting up, I use a long bolt that fits right through the berger hole and touches a nocked arrow giving me a good indication where centre is. For me centre of berger hole works best, BUT, that's not to say for some people a little above or below would work better.

    No one has exactly the same form and I've found that in archery what always comes out trumps for me , is good ol trial and error.
