If your riser has two button holes drilled, how do you decide which to use? David

Ok, I did some research and I gather that you can use the front hole to get a stiffer arrow to tune (or looked at another way, got an arrow to act weaker). Has anyone ever tried that?

Yes, I always use the furthest away one. With a low Brace Height bow it also gives the opportunity for greater clearance.

I have no idea what fits your bow! But the rest has to support the arrow at the button, not 2cm behind it.

I would be surprised if a wrap around rest would reach the front hole position. My understanding for using the rear mounting is to reduce effects of torque as it is directly above the bow pivot point in the grip. The only world class archer I know who shoots/has shot from the front button position is Chang Hyejin.
