RE: whisker biscuts
Ihave heard that a lot of people do not like them but I have had one on my bow for about a month and love it, I dont think I'll ever change.I haven't had any fletchings ripped off yet but I have heard that does happen from time to time.

RE: whisker biscuts
if you paper tune your bow and you have good tears the biscuit will be fine. i shot one for two years until i recently switched to a drop away which i now prefer over the WB. either way you willl be fine your pro shop should be able to get it tuned fine for you

RE: whisker biscuts
one thing you can do it add a drop of glue to the forward edge of thefletching (the part that goes through the wb first) and that will keep the fletchings from coming off. I have been shooting the wb for years and I have never had a fletching fly off. It may slow the arrow down a little, but I will take a tiny decrease in speed and know that my arrow will never fall off the rest again.

RE: whisker biscuts
You will see this question regularly on all the forums, I posted it myself a while back. I use one and it wrinkled the heck out of a few of my 4 in. vanes and it also will leave black marks. It can tear the vanes off or chew up the front of it so a drop of super glue can help prevent that. As for the wrinkled vanes, I was told it should not effect the flight unless it's really bad and to try some heat from a hairdryer to get them back into shape. Once the vanes get really beat up or I get motivated I'm going to re-vane them anyway. Some say when you switch go with2 in.Blazers and some say Dura vanes (work really well with the Biscuit). Probably some other opinions as well. good luck

I have used the WB for a few years now and had had no problems with it. I shoot 2" blazer vanes and have not lost a vane yet. I fletch my own arrows and I have always put a drop of glue on the front of every vane or feather I have ever shoot. NEVER HAD A PROBLEM

RE: whisker biscuts
I switched from a drop away to a WB, noticed no difference. I do use 2" Blazers & have never had a problem w/them getting torn off. As for slowing down the arrow, it's possible as the vanes go thru, but for arrow shaft contact, it is no different than a 2 prong style rest.

RE: whisker biscuts
i shoot a WB and i have no problems with it and i like it very much. but if you are "afraid" to use it, then i would go with the ripcord dropaway, when and if i get a new rest i will get one of those.

RE: whisker biscuts
I have looked at the whisker biscuits and for my preference, I wouldn't want the drag interfering with my arrow flight. It's common sense, with a drop away your arrow is untouched.
