View Full Version : fletching contact

07-29-2012, 02:58 AM
Ok, so I am slowly getting my Onza tuned and I did a fletching contact test and failed. I am shooting off a QAD rest. I have read two different opinions; move the string loop up and or tighten the string on the rest. What do y'all think?

I'd tighten/shorten the rest cord. Get rid of the clearance problem first, then move the D-loop up during tuning if you need to. I'd never move my loop to get better clearance. Your tuning will tell you where your loop should be. Might have to shorten the rest cord up a little more once you start tuning. I use the Trophy Taker rests, so not real familiar with the one you are using, but I have all mine set to hit top dead center right as I get to full draw. With an arrow nocked, and at full draw, I try to make sure that the rest starts falling as soon as the arrow moves about one inch forward on the shot.

Is your rest hitting your bow when it falls and bouncing up into the arrow as it goes by?

If I remember right a quad is a fast dropping rest and as bc said in the above post it could be bouncing up.

If your getting fletching contact it's not setup right....I would readjust the tension on cord and paper tune it then you should be good to go......as long as bow is in tune.

It was slapping the shelf so I made it more perpendicular. I will adust the tension cable an det you know.

Without pics it's hard to say. Most likely it's bounce. I've had issue with bounce and cable contact befor. My fix for bounce was a Limb Drive pro rest and a paper tune worked, and no more bounce. I had issue with the same rest you shoot. I also use the Sanderson Hyper Glide slide, it pulls the cables closer into the slide bar, this give a little more clearance for hi profile vanes.

Update: we pushed the rest forward and tightend the cord some and 99.02% of the contact has gone away.
