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.

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.

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
