    Default D Loop ..Nock Height...QAD Rest

    my Qad HDX is set so it hits the shelf pretty hard i would like to raise it a bit to just clear the shelf (there is enough travel on the QAD to do this) this means of course i will have to raise the D loop to match.

    will doing this have any adverse effects on accuracy (assuming i get the D Loop and rest back in line at 90deg)
    How can i raise the D loop (at moment i dont have ant D loop material so have to re use)
    Can i loosen D loop and re tighten..how would i do this

    When i raise the rest so the QAD just clears the shelf and set the arrow 90deg to the string , i can see just less than half the berger hole below the arrow, is that ok , or is the arrow too high

    You want to keep the center of the arrow 7/8" - 15/16" above the shelf, at most.

    To move your loop, just screw it up or down the serving. The way the serving is wrapped, it almost works like a threaded screw.

    The bow gets harder to tune and may not tune well, at all.

    Use the tl1 launcher that came with your qad it was made for bowtech and elite bows to get more shelf clearance it lets your shaft ride deeper into the forks.

    The tl1 launcher is actually 1/8 higher in the valley. It's made for fletching clearance not shelf clearance.

    You are corect.What i meant was we have been useing the tl1 on all the qads we install and have no shelf contact running arrow thru center of amo hole and nock level
    I dont have shelf contact with the fletching, i have shelf contact with the forks of the QAD..the forks smack down onto the shelf upon release, this is what i am trying to stop by raising the rest..nothing to do with arrow / fletch clearance

    Raise it up. it will still tune and top half of the berger holes isnt a bad thing.
    then twist the loop like its threaded to the serving.
    No ifs and or buts Just maybee.

    Here's something else you can try. grind the V in the rest a little deeper. That way you can raise your rest up, but keep your arrow position the same.

    Maybe QAD should look at offering another fork option with a deeper V in it as i understand this situation arises on a few other brands of bows as well.
