    Sorry About Spelling It But I Just Installed One On My Pse Beast And Love The Stability While Hunting As Well As Its Performence. However, I Am Having Trouble Keeping Veins On My Pse Carbon Force 300 Arrows And Wonder If It Is Peeling Them Off. Any Suggestions Would Be Appreciated.

    What kinda vanes? I have heard that the NAP Quick Spins do not do well thru a biscuit.

    If you are fletching your own shafts, try lightly sanding the tail of the shaft with a very fine sandpaper, say 400 grit. That will help the vanes hold on.

    I am using the 2" Bohning Blazers on Easton's ST Axis shafts. The Blazers seem to work well with the biscuit.

    We need details on how you prep your shafts for fletching and what type of glue you use.

    Do you clean the shafts and/or the vanes and which what?
    What type of glue do you use?
    Do you scuff the shaft with sandpaper (I don't do this but many do)
    Are you shooting a helical? If yes, what degree of helical?

    whisker biscuit

    I really don't know the archery shop that I purchase from sets them up for me. (I'm fairly new to the sport) He stated that he drops some glue at the front of the veins to try to keep them on. He also suggested that I trim the whiskers out from the areas that the veins pass through, which I reall don't want to do.

    If this problem continues then I may start refletching my arrows sooner than I really wanted to and was wondering about equiptment advise at a reasonable price for carbon arrows.

    We recommend shooting bohning blazer vanes with the whisker biscuit. They are a little stiffer and hold up well in the biscuit.

    I use the 2 inch Blazers thru a biscuit on my hunting rig. They are flecthed on the Easton Axis carbons. They work fine for me. The Blazers hold up really well. :)

    I will try the blazers when I begin fletching my own arrows, after this hunting season so that I am assured of not having to make adjustments without practice before hunting.

    Thanks for all of your help guys.

    I shoot redhead labeled carbon fury arrows through my whisker biscuit and at worst I get some very slight curling in the vanes. Just take a blow dryer on light heat and warm'em up a little and they are fine.
