    While you've got contact, you can't really tell about the match of the shafts. It may be suggestive of a mismatch, but bare shaft can't actually tell you anything unless you fix the contact first. Rear contact is (if I recall correctly) suggestive of a weak shaft - the theoretical mechanism is that the shaft is not reacting quickly enough and the rear end striking the riser instead of bending around it. But that assumes there's no other cause (like a kick from the nock release, because the brace height is wrong, or the rear end being given inward travel by some other miss-setting). Clearance issues are a royal pain.

    True Rik. I was aware of that. But having lowered the poundage, the clearance issues have gone (hopefully for good).
