i want one that is accurate and less resitance on the arrow if possible..
Given those requirements, the whisker biscuit isn't a match. There is drag on the arrow from beginning of the draw till the arrow is gone. With a drop away, there is very little, if any drag at all.

The biggest advantage to the whisker buscuit is that if you are walking around with an arrow nocked it won't fall off the rest.
I don't see it as "drag".........the arrow fits loosely in the bristles and is really only contacted by the bottom for support. If that is the definition of "drag" then I guess a drop-away is the only answer.......even though theyhave "drag" as well all through the draw using that definition.

If it's not drag, why do you loose 3-5 feet per second? Gotta be some resistance somewhere, don't ya think?

Hmmm.......every bow we've shot has lost 3-5 fps. We must be doing something wrong.

Well let me see, drag or resistance, I will still use the WB, some will use drop away or others, as always it is individual choice, and I choose WB! [8D]

Using the proper sized Biscuit opening I lost 1-2 fps on the chrono. and have no vane damage at all. It's going to be more of a personal preference as to which rest to use. They both will work fine if set up properly, personally I like the simplicity of the Whisker Biscuit.

I shot mine with and without and got from 0-2 fps with most shots showing 1 fps loss. Same with my brother's bow.

That is really too small a figure to even use as a reliable stat.......too much chance for error as pretty much anything can result in a change of 1 fps in either direction.........and even that is being kind. I surely wouldn't call it "drag".

If you want less (no) drag and full containment (all the time) try the QAD Ultra Rest.
