When your tears are up or down, what is the difference in moving the nock point and raising or lowering the rest? (other than clearance)

Seems that as long as your axl to axl is still on then the nock point should always stay the same (directly half way from ATA)and the rest should be moved to correct an up/down tear.

You want the arrow to run correctly through the berger hole so that it's leaving the bow as perpendicular to the riser as possible. If your tear is severe you might have to move the rest too much up or down to correct. Then even though you've cleared up your tear at a close range you will have flight problems down range. If the tear is slight you can tweak your rest up/down a bit.

Many bow/rest combinations tune best with a slight nock high placement that applies downward pressure to the arrow down on the rest. That's how my fixed position rests are, I don't have any dropaways or know anything about them.

Just read some article that actually states that downward pressure on the rest is actually needed and desired to achieve optimum arrow flight. When setting up a bow for the first time I set the arrow running through the berger button hole. Then if I have to make any adjustment it is done to the nocking point. What makes the location of the nocking point is the variations in each persons body shape, individual draw form and anchor point.

one of theh best ways to take the up and down tear out is to make sure your arrow is set up dead level or just a tad nock high. Then you get your left and right tears out by adjusting the rest if you are not having a spine issue. Then to get the high or low out simply add or take away twists frm the control cable. This method times your bow as well
