Default feather problem

Ok here is the thing, i put 3 inch feathers on my arrows. I also stuck a new whisker for my biscuit on my bow. well when i went to shot the bow was way off. well i sighted it in. But it is not getting good groups and i can shot the arrow 2 times and one time will shot ok the way of. I was using 4 inch plastic vanes. Now does anyone no what might be wrong? I mean where they fletched wrong or somthing. I also turned the nock and it made it go on more and when i did not turn it, it was shotting way off.

If everything is lined up correctly and the fletch is all the same...I couldnt begin to guess, unless something on the rest is loose.

I did, however, experience an issue with the bisquit...When I fletched my own feathers, the tips would drag on the whiskers and start to pull back. So, I then started to dab a little bit of glue on the tip(complete front, where the fletchmeets the shaft)of the fletch..Never had that problem.

I guess if the tip of the fletch is catching it would cause random arrow flight..

By the way, Im disregard everything I say...

Did you put a whole new rest on, or just replace the biscuit? If you put on a whole new rest, you're going to need to re-tune the bow. It really sounds like a tuning issue to me.

What size arrow are you using? Why did you go to a 3" feather when you were using 4" vanes? I would stick with a 4" feather. But like already mentioned if you replaced the whole rest it could be a tuning issue.
