If your using a drop away rest, does it really matter if your off colored vane is pointed north or south?

When we shot spring rests the [censored] vane was always pointed away from the riser

Agree with Bobo. Fletching cable clearance or for spine orentation, otherwise the fletching orentation should not matter with a dropaway. I test with a vain pointed down when installing one for max clearance

I'll reiterate what was said above. It doesn't matter with a drop away rest. Having said that, mine is always pointed up as well. It's just how I have it set up.

Yeah but one is still the cocked vane, it's just a case of orientation and I'll leave it at that.
