I shoot mine with a 8 1/4"BH and a feather rest.

What would the benefit of a feather rest be? Never used one? And getting a brace height up 1"-1 1/2" would I be better getting a shorter string or would I be fine twisting it that much?

Thanks to everyone for the advice. Got my brace height up to 8" and now my arrows are shooting the straightest they've ever been. Bareshaft and fletched

If your string is twisted too much, measure your string when braced for tune and have a reputable string maker twist you one up at that "actual string length" under tension. AMO length can vary from maker to maker in what you actually get vs what works in actual string kength. I like a very casual flemish twist in my final string length,
