Paper tuning Whisker Bisquit

9 posts in this topic

Made a last minute decision to throw a whisker bisquit on my bow this week-end and am having a terrible time tuning it. I've got terrible horizontal flutter and no matter how much I'm moving in my rest it's making no differance.Any help would be appreciated.I hate to have to take it in at this point of the year.

do you have a strong helical or quickspin vanes? if so they can cause a bit of tail whip.

I would take the whisker biscuit off and get a new rest, that will solve your problem right there. Nap makes one like it, but it has room for clearance of the vanes. Whisker biscuits aren't the easiest to tune. or the most accurate.

I agree with AC777, I have the NAP Hostage rest and will never go back to a whisker biscuit

Dont sell the Bicuit short. it has quite a few benifits the most being, your arrow will NEVER fall out while hunting. I can shoot mine, Quite accurate, at 50 yds.

What type of bow do you shoot?

better yet take a couple pictures of it in your hand from severale angles and someone here will tell you what needs to be fixed!

tilting the biscuit forward until it barely touches the top of you arrow can help too.

I would definately not recommend tilting the biscuit to touch the top of the arrow. It may be working for you but I'd be willing to bet it's covering up for another set up issue. The more things you have touching your arrow the more likely you are to have problems. We have set up hundreds of biscuits and never have problems when they are set up properly according to the manufacturers instructions.

whisker biscuits don't allow fletching to pass through, like most people think. they force the fletching to collapse in order to go through. thats why in time you will notice fletching starting to wrinkle and look all crumpled up. blazers are about the worst to shoot through a biscuit, as they are taller. feathers are easier to collapse and therefore work the best through a biscuit. as odd as it sounds, try shooting a fletchless arrow through a biscuit. it worked for a buddy of mine, until he upgraded his bow, then went fall away rest with blazers, the same i've got, and has worked the best for me.

I got my biscuit paper tuned just fine. Vanes push the fibers out of the way, feathers collapse. They are tunable for sure.

I haven't had problems. Vanes are working for me, but there is some fletching wear as part of the tradeoff. I touch mine up and do some replacements.

You don't want the fit around the arrow shaft to be too tight. That could be a problem.

Also, remember that main vane must go to the top so it isn't going through the stiff black bristles. Watch how your screw in nocks and fletching lines up.

Hope this helps.

    • lambjm - keep at it. If you do, you stand a great chance of fishing for possibly decades to come.    Inspirational to me, and hopefully others, is our 85 year old neighbor in Hovland who finished up logging our land this past spring. He logs in a one man operation every day, except Sundays, and a nice day every now and again to fish with his wife.    He has been logging continually for 66 years.   Like clockwork he gets to the landing everyday by 8:30, takes a 15 min break at 10:30, a half hour lunch break at 12, and a 15 min break at 3 before quitting at 4:30. A few days last winter I was out on the land making firewood and clearing trails, and could barely keep up with his schedule. He plans to keep at it as long as he is able.    My wife and I saw him last winter, as we rounded the corner of our road, standing atop a 10' pile of aspen logs with a cant hook or axe in one hand, waving with the other. He appeared as a man less than half his age in terms of agility and stature.   Genetics are a key, but staying interested and active in an outdoor activity is very important to a long and healthy life.     
    • That is because he was fooled into believing in trickle down economics and the idea that cutting taxes in and of itself would solve the budget problem.   Some are still fooled today.
    • Starve the beast, only the beast got stuff on credit.   Reagan didn't seem to be concerned too much about debt.
    • We already know Uncle Bill's response though:  
    • That is a very nice Pimple spear!   They are hard to find. I bought a couple of them from Jerry Kelm. He said Pimple used spring steel from hay rake tines to make the spear tines.    I have not seen one in person with chromed or nickel finish like that, but there is a picture of one that looks exactly like yours on page 215 of  the book "Ice Fishing Spears" by Marcel Salive. I actually wonder if it is the same spear. I heard Mr. Salive was selling off some spears about 5 years ago.    Are you going to be our tomorrow? If so PM me and I will bring the book out to give you a look. TS and I are going to out in the morning.
