I shoot a trykon xl with a 32 inch draw at 70 lbs.Has anyone else had any problems tuning this bow?My set up is as follows:Whisker biscuit QS,Carbon Express 3D select 400 arrows,100 gr. field point/100 gr. muzzy 3 blade,2 inch blazer vanes.My bow shoots very smooth and fast,and my arrows are accurate,however I still get a small flutter in my arrow flight.Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Make sure the cams are in time.With the biscuit the hole needes to be a little bigger around than the arrow,I also like to serve a little material under the nock between it and the loop to create a little down pressure on release,this gives the arrow guidence and room to flex through the bristle hole on it's way out.

You didn't list what length arrow you are shooting. You might be a little underspined with that draw length and poundage for a 400 shaft. If you can, try a 300 and see what happens. Check to make sure your cams are in the right rotation as well. Opinions vary on this, but I like for my top cam to be slightly faster as it makes my bow perform better. I shoot the xl at 68 pounds with a 29 inch draw, 29 inch cx 3d select 300, 100 grain tip, and 3, 2 inch blazers and it shoots darts. Hope this helps.

Lou, I forgot that the 400 is spined heavier, I don't know where my mind is today. Our season doesn't open until Oct. 1, so maybe it's up a tree some where.:embara: Sorry for the mis-info. Still yet check to see that your cam rotation is on and also check for fletching contact. You might want to shoot through paper just as a reference to see what is going on and what kind of tear you are getting. That is just a starting point though. A little tweaking on the zephyr cam.5 can make a big difference in the shooting performance.

Thank you bhunter32,I shoot a 32.75 inch arrow.I just switched to the biscuit and I am pleased so far.My old rest was a NAP Quicktune 3000 and I did not like it at all.
