Should Arrows level on rest?

Why is my fletching hitting drop away rest?
Fletchings Gone Wrong Shooting in extreme heat conditions can cause the bond to break and the fletchings to fall off. Hitting something hard with the arrow can knock the fletchings loose. Bad glue or poorly bonded fletching can be to blame if you suddenly notice your fletchings falling off.
Are drop away arrow rests better?
The big advantage of drop-away rests is that when they’re tuned right—and we’ll talk about that in a moment—no part of the arrow, or the arrow’s fletching, should touch the rest after it’s released.
Does the arrow go above or below the nock?
A nocked arrow should be positioned about a quarter inch above the arrow rest on the bow handle. On most bows, a small brass band called a “nocking point” is crimped onto the bowstring to mark the correct position.
Why do my arrows fly sideways?
If you put any sideways pressure on the string with your release aid (it is easy to do by drawing the bow too far so that your string elbow points too far behind you) this will also cause sideways string travel.
