Unless the Whisker Biscuit is somehow causing the fletching contact, replacing whisker biscuit with a drop-away rest won't help. In my experience a whisker biscuit tends to correct for some bow problems.

For example: A bow with weak limb, which induced twisting action in bow, and showed up as center-shot tuning problem. No amount of adjusting the arrow rests (tried several) could produce a center shot. Even when archer was eliminated by using a mechanical shooting machine, bow would still twist. Anyway, the whisker biscuit produced the smallest amount of tearing, still an unacceptable amount for hunting.

Re: QAD rest

Mike,

The Whisker Biscuit seems to make paper tuning easier even though it's harder to make fine adjustments. It sounds to me like you need to adjust the twists in the lower yoke cables. If you have a low tear you would add twist. If you have a high tear you would remove twist. Try 1/2 twist at a time. You'll need a bow press. If you want, you can send your prod to me and I'll paper tune it for you.

Andy

Andy, Thanks for the generous offer, but turkey season is just about to start here and I don't want to take any chances and be without my bow. So I'll do the work myself.

Re: QAD rest

Here's an update, the turkey season went well with a 23.5 lb. bird with a 9.5 inch beard. After the season closed I bought and installed the QAD drop away on my Elite. The paper tuning went flawless with near perfect bullet holes at 10 yards with a bare shaft. And the little bit of vane contact I still had after the recall is now gone. After almost a year, I finally feel good about the Elite.

I didn't know how to upload two pictures, but here's the bird.
