as of now, i am thinking i will try the different vanes on 6 of my new 12 arrows
i shoot with a loop. i tried turning the nock cockvane at 1 oclock, cock vane out, all angles creates a problem, can't put it straight down either down with the qad, all caused contact. i am sick over it, $1500 on this setup, and i didnt expect this to be an issue.You should have plenty of clearance, why can't you turn the nock??? I did the exactly that with my Trykon XL to make clearance for the blazers, and I'm putting FP's and BH's together at 50yds. I do on a RARE occasion get a little ruffle on my mole skin on the riser, but it usually doesn't result in a flyer. Some of the issue may be BH/FP weight as well. If you're not shooting a loop, that may help a little as well. I found that switching to a loop helped me with all my set-ups.
well the maxima 350 hunters i believe are a bit fatter that the regulars, and i think the the qad is timed right, the contact is on the riser, not the rest which seems to be dropping away just fineWhat diameter shaft are you shooting? As super fat shaft will push your vanes closer to riser. Also, have you measured your center shot to see if it's close to spec. Is your quad timed right, it should not matter at all what orientation the fletching is, if timed right you won't get any contact. I have heard complaints of the quads being slow to fall sometimes. Have you tried another rest(ripcord, limbdriver, etc.). Just some options to consider.
Don't get frustrated, you'll get it figured out, and then it will be enjoyable rather than frustrating. I personally don't like the QAD's because they aren't the friendliest for clearance issues. If you haven't had it that long, maybe the shop will let you swap it out for something different. You should be able to turn the cock vane to about 1 1/2 o-clock and get a little more clearance. Turn the nock until you loose clearance to the bottom, then see how far you can go back. I have a TT Micro Adjust on my bow, and I can shoot it almost 360* without too much problem (another rest that I've heard a few guys like for clearance issues is the Drop-Zone, but I have had a couple bows that I just couldn't get clearance, and it's VERY frustrating.i shoot with a loop. i tried turning the nock cockvane at 1 oclock, cock vane out, all angles creates a problem, can't put it straight down either down with the qad, all caused contact. i am sick over it, $1500 on this setup, and i didnt expect this to be an issue.
If their a decent shop, they have them, no doubt, but I personally don't like them unless there on arrows flying out of my recurve.i dont think they sell them at my shop, i have no experience with them, so id like to find a vane that works, or new setup for my bow
I'll tell you this much as well, those 350's are probably too STIFF unless you left them at 30" and put a 125gr. tip on them. You'd likely be better off with something with a softer spine. Move the rest to the LEFT, don't paper tune, just move the rest to the left, enough to get clearance, and see what kind of groups you shoot out to 30yds. One thing I know about ST's is that they will fly GREAT even out of poorly tuned bow, a bow that isn't spined right with it's arrows, etc. If you're getting fletching contact, you certainly have something wrong, best place to start may be getting rid of the fletching contact and working from there!!! Good Luck!!well the maxima 350 hunters i believe are a bit fatter that the regulars, and i think the the qad is timed right, the contact is on the riser, not the rest which seems to be dropping away just fine
