Default Index Vane

Does it really matter which way the index vane is pointed when using a qad ultra rest?

If timed properly, no.

But, my personal anchor point feels weird with the vane any other place then straight up. If not straight up, the other vanes touch my cheek and nose....

Depends. You may get contact with taller vanes like blazers but only you will know that.

I just always point mine up. It is aligned with the stiff side of my arrows for consistency and its easy to see if its straight. Thats how I tuned my bow so even if its not necessary it leaves no doubt about my arrow flight
