You may already be doing this with the Arrows, but we need to be sure we are on the same page. Are the arrows Literally Numbered as "#1", "#2", ... "#13", "#14" ?
Thus when you say:
--- 7th arrow went 2" left, does arrow #7 always go 2" left?
--- 12th arrow went 8" low, does arrow #12 always go 8" low?
--- 13th & 14th arrow went 4" low, does arrow #13 & #14 always go 4" low?
And arrows #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #8, #9, #10, #11 all hit in the same place.
If your arrows are not numbered, then number them and shoot them** in order, noting where each arrow hits. Repeat the process. If you start to see a pattern, arrow #7 always hits 2" left, while arrows #1-#6 always hit in the same place, then you know the problem is related to the arrows.
And yes, it is quite possible for you to have four arrows out of fourteen arrows that hit different than all others. Frankly, if you have ten arrows out of fourteen arrows that hit in the same hole at say 50-yards, consider yourself very lucky.
** One other thing, make absolutely sure, you load each arrow every time with the same side facing up
. Some of us have found our arrows have a strong side and weak side. Thus, if you shoot the arrow with the weak side up it will fly one-way, and when loaded with strong side up it will fly another-way.
There is one other way to go about this. Shoot the same arrow, loaded with the same side-up twenty times. The arrow should hit in the same place almost every time. If the arrow hits in different places 2" left, 4" high, 8" low, ..., then something about how the X-bow is being held/shot or the X-bow itself has a flaky problem.
