Re: Any customized Arrow Rests for TAC 15 ?
Somebody has mastered an understanding of "Arrow Spine and Tip Weight"! If I didn't know better I'd think the student has become a master.
Your words sound like they were coming out of my mouth, because I couldn't have said it any better myself. If more people would take the time to read and understand this information we'd be answering a lot less questions or statements based on an absence of understanding the basics of arrow flight.
As tip weight increases, the shaft will always flex more, since the laws of physics don't ever lie.
As the shaft flexes more, there is considerably more disruption moving thru the Whisker Biscuit. This includes the fletching, but we have also seen in slow motion footage what is know as the "Archer's Paradox". This is where the arrow shaft flexes well outside and around a given arrow rest as it moves forward to launch. The shaft does recover each time as it moves down range and clears the bow, but imagine what this looks like in slow motion when it must pass through a Whisker Biscuit style arrow rest. Violent is an understatement. I'd more likely classify it as pure ugly!
This is why PSE's engineers and anybody else with an engineering background will tell archers to be careful about adding extra tip weight to their shafts.
Move to a different launch platform and you might have some additional lead way.
Okie, Thanks again for your insightful knowledge and being the voice of reason on this.
