Bearing to Line Tool issue

Has any one had issues with the Bearing to Line tool not plotting the line at the correct bearing angle in ArcMap? I  pulled the bearings and lengths from a layer using the Add Geometry Attributes tool, and then re-plotted them in ArcMap. However, the lines does not show up in the same place (unless the angles are 0 and 90).  The purple lines below show the original lines that I used to pull the bearing angles from. When I attempt to re-plot the lines to QA, the green lines are what ArcMap plots. I used a protractor to look at the angles and the purple measures correct and matches the output/input, but the green is off by roughly 5 degrees in this case (the degree of variance is not consistent). I have checked the coordinates to makes sure that they are consistent throughout the layers, map document and tool environments.
