Cock feather points straight up. If it is down then it will make contact with the aluminum bracket and if it is oriented in another way one of the vanes will slide through the quick shot slot and then the fibers will not grab all vanes equally resulting in irradic flight.

The Whisker Biscuit is an very good rest i have shot hundreds of arrows through it for the past several months with nonoticable bristle loss or fletch damage except for onlya slight discoloration on some ofvanes. I'm not changing anything in the way i've got that rest set up.

I love my WB as well, but recently switched to vanes from feathers because it was chewing my vanes up pretty good.

I also shoot w/ the cock feather up in the WB.
