Well I decided to pull the moleskin off my rest today and replace it with some new stuff. It was getting a little loose and I figured what the heck.

Got some new on there and even did a better job than the original.

Figured I would have a flyer the first time out since I fiddled with my rest.

First shot.... THUNK! bullseye.
Second Shot....THunk, 1/2" off
Third shot.... Pulled it and felt it when I shot.
Forth shot Thunk... Bullseye.

IT would seem that replacing the moleskin tightened up my groups. I guess the little corner that was loose where the arrow touched the rest was pushing my shots 2-3" Right on most shots.

Just goes to show that a little bow maintaince can go a looong way. 2-3" groups at 20yds was really messing with my confidence. Now I would hesitate to shoot 3 arrows at the same spot on my target for fear of breaking a nock.

Gotta love a cheap/free fix! Take a few seconds to go over your bow NOW and fix any problems before season.

It's amazing how those little wear issues can cause changes in arrow flight .

Yeah and it was a LITTLE issue. In fact, I didn't even think it was an issue. I was just killing time until my shooting spot was in the shade. Changed it out more for appearances sake, but Im glad I did!!
