I made this overdraw and vellum fletched this arrow. It flies like a dart but quite a bit high and the inside fletch gets destroyed. Overdraw design problem or stiff arrow??

is an elevated feather rest legal in the class you are looking at? or a shelf radius?

I may try the feather rest.

Typically a device for clearance was  also used.  A toothbrush was very common back in the day.

 That's why keyhole centers  became normal.   In fact video of  Don Brown shooting his record  shows the arrow basically floating in the center of the keyhole.

It occurred to me that an overdraw shouldn't be a long arrow rest, it should be a way of moving the arrow rest back. That said I think I'll change to feather fletching until I've got the spine and string nock right and then change to vellum. A feather rest or toothbrush is in the works too
Thanks guys :D

You definitely need to make the same changes guys use to shoot plastic or rubber vanes instead of feathers.

I think I was thrown off track because the first time I made a vellum fletched arrow it shot off my hand quite nicely and made me think that they behaved just like any other arrow.

Yes AND your reat doesn't act like your hand :)
Look at the shape of the Turkish siper. It must be curved along its length.

If you have a feather or brush pass do you have to/normally use a release rather than fingers?

A and S are side by side on a qwerty keyboard. He was trying to type 'rest', but fat fingered it.
