BOBCAT,,I have scoffed at the WB for years.I bought one just about the day they hit my local pro shop.NEVER even shot an arrow through it.
When I tipped my bow down and let one of aluminum " logs' drop through it.The 5" helical vanes STOPPED the arrow.Talk about putting on the " brakes" .Well, this was NO GOOD to me and my already slow set up.I sold it to a freind for half. price,,,I' m good like that[:@]
Now, I' m shooting carbons and thought it was time to take ANOTHER look at the NEW and IMPROVED WB.All I can say for sure is that the WB and carbons are a MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN !!.I was very surprized at how well this rest handles carbons.I have not finished ALL of my testing, but so far, out to 30 yards,,,AWSOME !!!!!!!!!!!.[:-]

Try one, you will like it. Accurate, easy to tune, low maintanance, and durable.

What more do you want from a rest.

I just put one on my bow. All I can say is that my bow shoots the best it ever has. My groups are just better. It does slow you down, but for hunting only I do not plan on changing anytime soon.

The whisker biscuit should have a loose arrow to biscuit fit in order to work properly. The aluminium size biscuit has a .36" hole and will work with up to 22XX size aluminium arrows. To use your 2312 arrows you would have to pull the biscuit apart at the split in the ring of the biscuit. This will make the hole bigger and create a homemade quickload version of the rest. Trimming the bowstring side of the rest flat does make the rest somewhat easier to tune. The whisker biscuit is very quiet and very accurate, its well worth the effort to figure it out. Good luck hunting!

I just got a quick shot rest for 2314 arrows. And my groups are tighter then they have ever been. Its an excellent rest to say the least.

In regards to Bassmaster 1200' s coment about aluminum arrows making noise, I have a guy who complained about that but had heard that you can spray silicone on the WB to quiet it down. I told him to be sure that his arrows were clean as that helps noise on other rests. Has anyone heard of a solution for the noise problem with aluminum arrows???
