New Arrows?

Recommended Posts

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!

    • Fishing a mid lake Hump that came up to 45ft. Caught most of the fish between 50-61. We did catch some on the top of the hump in the evening. 
    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
