Default whisker biscuit and...

hey guys,
i have been using a wb since i started bowhunting. i love the thing, and no matter who tells me they don't like them (or how much better a drop away is) , i love them, and won't shoot anything else.

now the purpose of this post is to ask if anyone who shoots vanes through a wb, gets black marks on their vanes? I never had this happen on my old vanes (3'' dura vanes) but i switched to Blazers last week(all white blazers in fact) and have unattractive black marks on the vane. I was curiouse if its MY wb or ALL of them. Thanks.

good to know steelhead, is there an efficiant way to get them off, or do they not bother you??

I just started shootingnot too longago, and use cheap arrows, so it doesn't bother me too much. I have noticed though that after many shots my vanes begin to get slight tears in them, and I can only attribute that to the WB. I know some people swear it doesn't do this to the vanes, but I can argue it does.

My fletchings are probably tearing because I'm shooting cheap arrows I'm sure.

For you guys that are getting marks on your vanes, is it on just one vane, or all 3? If it's just on one, do you shoot cock vane up or down? I ask because the black bristles are on the bottom center of the WB, right? You should be shooting cock vane up if you aren't....

Those black marks indicate contact with the rest, like mobow said, the cock vane must go up so the vanes straddle the support (black) bristles.

I'm also getting black marks in my vanes (2" blazers w/right helical), I'm shooting cock-vane up and am getting the marks on the top side of the 4 & 8 o'clockvane, none on the cock-vane, not worried though, I'm getting 4" groups @ 40 yds.
