Two blogs in one day, huh?
Like I said in my last post, it’s been a while, so I’ve got some catching up to do.
So my new Hoyt Maxxis 31 came with a Trophy Ridge Whisker Biscuit arrow rest.
So actually have commented that this affects the trajectory of the arrow. Some will disagree. Pigman shot three arrows at 100 yards and hit his target with accuracy.
The video below shows a slow motion video through a Whisker Biscuit.
Installation of the Revolution I thought would be easy. However, I was wrong on that.
Since it employs a cable release on the rest, it needs to be set up at a Pro Shop and the instructions on it have to be followed EXACTLY.
In the instructions, it states to mount the rest to your bow and to center an arrow on the rest, nocked to the string.
To do this, you must nock another arrow on the shelf below the rest, then adjust the rest so that it is parallel to the one on the shelf.
I didn’t realize this, but the arrow in the Revolution rest MUST BE in the fully cocked position and not sitting in it. Not just locked and resting.
Once that is completed you need to place an arrow beside the arrow in the rest and adjust so that it is parallel to that as well.
Once your arrow is centred, you’re going to need to bring it to a pro shop, unless you have a bow press at home.
Once in the bow press, you need to set the ripcord string through the bus cable of the bow and put about 1 inch of serving about 4 inches below the shelf.
Once that is completed, draw your bow and the ripcord will pull through the bus cable. Slowly release the bow and set it down.
Pull the ripcord cable through about 1/4″ of an inch, cut and using a lighter, mushroom a ball at the end. When you draw your bow again, it will set itself against the serving and the ripcord cable should be really tight. If it isn’t, then you haven’t done it properly. The ripcord needs to be tight in order to release the rest.
It it doesn’t, you can either expect some arrow/fletching damage.
End result… a nice 3 inch grouping….
