    Lightbulb What angle do you recommend for a blade rest???

    Hi Guys,
    I've got a freakshow extended mount rest and am using 450 spine nano pros on it. The angle of the blade is set quite low (I think, but I'm no expert) at about 15-20 degrees.
    I've got an issue when drawing back where the arrow seems to fall off of the launcher blade rest pretty easily and was wondering what anyone can recommend as an angle (to possibly fix the issue) or am I looking in the wrong spot to fix this problem?
    Keen for any thoughts and advice.

    Cheers

    The ideal angle is 30 degrees maybe raise your nocking point a little

    I suspect the Beiter launcher comes with 30 and 35 angle blocks for good reason.

    I have had the same issue with various blade rests over the years.
    Yes, get that blade angle upwards more for sure.
    It may be advisable to check for nock pinch & ensure that the an upwards pressure from your nock point ties & DLoop aren't creating that lift as well.

    I like to stay around 35degrees ish... also are you drawing back with a "soft hand", tensed front hand can cause the arrow to fall off.

    Awesome- now I've got it at about 30 degrees without an arrow on it, and it does bend a fair bit with the arrow on it. I'm using nano pro 450's, 29" and the blade is a .10 medium. Would that be the right blade? And is the angle meant to be with or without an arrow on the blade?

    Ps I am pulling back soft hand, but find myself redrawing every second arrow...
