Highlander Archery,
But the actual rest seems to be slightly at a downward angle. Should that be normal.

1/16 to 1/8 inch nock high is not unusual

I'm sure I will take flack for this, but I bought my bow at BPS. Initially upon purchase, the gent made very minor adjustments and it was incredibly accurate for some time.

Then my son stepped on it or something (rest was waaaaay out), but it started shooting high and to the left. I took it back to BP and with laser etc he re-adjusted it for a grand total of $3. If I recall it was no more than $10 if it wasn't purchased there.

You might also consider picking up a book entitled:

Tuning Your Compound Bow by Larry Wise. @ $12.95 +/-

Good luck!
