....have Fletching contact when your tears look like this through paper at 6 ft and 15 ft?

I can put foot spray on my Fletching and it won't leave a mark on my rest or broadhead shelf . When I put lipstick on the tip of my right vane it smears on the shelf. Weird

hmmmmmmmm...that is weird. I could maybe understand at longer yardages because the fletchings have time to stabilize the arrow, but at 6ft they do not have time to stabilize unless your contact is so minimal it's not making a difference anyway. If your getting bullets like that I would put the lipstick back in the wife's purse and not worry about it and shoot away. \:\)

It looks like you have a very slight low tear but not bad at all. You could try to turn ur nock just a tiny bit and see if that eliminates the contact to the self. I might be wrong but in the pic it looks like the hole where the actual shaft made appears to be at a slight angle, with the back of the shaft going through lower then the front of the shaft, not very much if any at all. Hard to tell from the pic. I would start by shooting a bare shaft through paper and examine the very hole carefully. Any contact imo is not good especially with fixed heads. If ur getting good flight but slight contact from self u might want to raise nocking point and the rest just enough to eliminate contact but keeping the same angle of the arrow at rest.

Most the time when u have significant arrow contact low it will cause a high tear. That's why I say the contact is very minute.

Sometimes when it's hot outside the lipstick will just fling off and get on the riser or rest ..... I think the paper tear at 6ft and your bare shaft results are telling you all you need to know ....

I agree.

I got home tonight and sprayed foot powder on my launcher and broadhead shelf. Nothing was disturbed by the Fletching.

UT...do you have mole skin on the riser shelf?

I once had a similar situation with my set up. I never did figure out what caused the smear in my vane until I replaced the moleskin at the end of the season.

I have also seen this happen with the bus cables.

It really does n ot matter in the end.

Now I never paper tune my bows unless my fixed blade broadheads do not fly well or I notice a kick in my arrow.

I went over to Energy Wave yesterday to pick up a much needed new target insert. We shot my bow through paper and confirmed I was getting some contact. Tightened the limb driver cable and problem solved.
