New Arrows?

5 posts in this topic

I have a whisker bisquit style rest and I need to buy some new arrows. How should I have the vanes set? Left-helical, right-helical, etc.....?

I would choose a arrow with a nice smooth finish. Like Beman ICS hunters or Easton Axis (non camo versions). The smooth finish is quietest through the bisquet. Arrows with a finish like some Carbon Express arrows and Gold Tip arrows tend to make a little bit of noise on the draw. Like a mild screeching sound.

I've used helical, and offset and shoot blazer vanes and have never had a problem with wear. Most say to use an offset rather than helical however I've never had an issue with helical.

I shot a dozen Easton ST Epic's (another smooth arrow) with Helical fletched blazers for 2 seasons and never had a bit of wear. Just busted arrows from shooting too many groups! wink

Good luck.

No Offense man, but I'd buy a drop away and then you dont have anything to worry about. Not trying to be a jerk or nothing but if you think about the concept of the whisker biscut it stinks because the arrow has constant contact with the rest all the way to the nock so if you grab or torque your bow in the even the slightest little bit your arrow is off its mark and that could mean a wounded deer or whatever you hunt. There are a couple of options out there for you one is the new trophy taker full capture rest and then there is the ripcord and these are both dropaways. I shoot weekly with a group and there are 2 people in the group and they both use a whisker biscuit and neither of them can shoot consistently like the rest of us can with a dropaway rest. Just food for thought I also realize that some people cant just go out and buy new stuff for your bow, but I also can guarantee one thing you would not regret buying one thats for sure.

Hey thats fine. I know I need to get a dropaway rest. Accually, it is not a whisker bisquit, its a hostage rest by bowtech, but the same idea. Anyways thanks for the info!

    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
