Caption: If you have an arrow or two that won't seem to group with the others, try rotating the nock a third of a turn so that a different vane points up when the arrow is nocked.

The release shooter should position the rest so that a nocked arrow is parallel with the stabilizer.
The arrow is normally nocked directly below this important bowstring accessory.
