    Well i went from my old flip rest to a whiskerbiscut qs.
    Can't hit a thing with it.

    Managed to get the 20yrd in so so.
    30 & 40 forget it.
    Lost a half dozen arrows.

    The old rest I was drilling 30, 50, & 60 yrds within a 5 inch circle using them old old toxonics sights.


    HELP!!!!!!!!!

    tune up

    Hey Have you tried to paper tune that setup yet? See if you are punching a pretty hole and if so it should fly good as well. Hope this helps, Holy Smokes:smash:

    My setup

    Well it's my Yamaha bow.
    and the specs are in my signature.

    The old flip rest was messing up my vanes.
    An the arrows, while i was driving nails, flew more like bottle rockets to the target.

    The whiskerbiscut is what I want to use for hunting.
    The arrow fly straighter for, & even acheive a little rotation.
    I'll probably have my arrows refletched with a right hand offset next time.
    While for target shooting I want a dropaway rest.

    I'm gonna buy a Firestorm lite from pse to hunt with, but not sure when I'll have the money, so I'm preparing to hunt with this old target bow just in case.

    I gotta a question, whats the centershot area like on that bow??? Okay so maybe thats not the right term but you guys know what I mean, if the bow is old enough he may not have any room for anything but a flipper style rest. IE the shelf is too narrow.......

    If the bow was using a flipper rest, the odds are that is have a very narrow shelf. This would be a big problem with a whisker biscuit. A narrow shelf means the vanes will contact the riser when the arrow leaves the bow. Feathers would help.

    Okay, yall have a point, I considered.

    This bow is designed to shoot with a rest slap on the rizer.
    I mean recurve style.

    I know it messes with my geometry, totaly contradicting centerline theory( not to be confused with true center ).

    It came with a springer rest, & it desimated my vanes, first shot.

    Fletchings rubed side & bottom powdercoat clean off through the material.

    I've tonight been able to align the 20 yrd pin, & be somewhat consistant.

    3 of 5 arrows in a 3 inch group.
    30yrds hit two of five.

    I can't even see the groups at 20 without walking up so I think I mat be doing well, but not as well or up to the standards I set for myself.

    It's gonna be like carnegee hall, practie, practice, practice.


    PS: I still shoot instinctively better than with sights on the quick shot without sights up to 80 yrds with practice-----8 inch groups, or one shot bulls.

    I realy miss quick shot tournies.
