If your getting fletching contact it is likely due to nock point to low.

This is exactly why I shoot a biscuit for hunting. Nothing to go wrong during the middle of the season. I have a QAD and it's great, just worry about possible problem at the most inopportune time (though it's never happened to me).

I shot a whisker bisquet a while but it ATE fletchings. I was getting arrows refletched every 25 shots. And we had a cold winter and any water that collected on it moving to the woods froze the hairs together.

In a mild enviroment where you don't mind replacing fletchings they are fine

I love the biscuit, but switched to the QAD Ultra last season and couldn't be happier!

Not many, if any, hunting bows faster than my tricked out Hoyt Alpha Burner and zero QAD fletch contact. Either timed wrong or faulty. Could be super big fletching?

I would call QAD and ask them about it. Chances are they will give you a return auth and have you send it in so they can look it over and repair/replace as needed

Default Fletch Clearance

For the guys having trouble with the rest not dropping quick enough to get out of the way of the fletchings. I'd recommend you adjust the length of your string tied to the bus cable. That's how you tune the drop "speed". Give it a try. I have one RIPCORD Code Red and another QAD Ultra Rest HD. I love them both and would recommend either to anyone. The QAD moleskin will need to be served onto the plastic capture fork though to keep it on long term. Serve it in and burn the ends and add a dab of super glue and you'll be G2G.

Default Timing Video

Basically, keep shortening your string until the rest comes all the way up when you are nearly (2") at full draw. Here is a video that explains it in better detail.

Default Wrap it with Serving

Fred,

Basically what I'm talking about is once you adhere the packaged mole skin to the fork with the sticky side on the fork you use serving to "tie it on". Starting at the top of one fork you wrap it tight with a half knot and them move down a 1/4 or 1/2" and do the same. Tie a square knot once in a while or at the end and then super glue or burn the knot end. This will keep the mole skin attached to the fork.
