I am not a big fan. I see seen alot of fletching get worn out form them. It's a good concept and great for beginers.

I have shot an NAP quicktune 4000 since it came out. It has been a terrific fallaway. Solid and fool proof. I am still kind of on the fence about the Trophytaker shaky hunter. I will give you another opinion in a week or so. I am putting a Trophytaker on my Ross when I get it.

my ol man shoots a whisker biscuit. he likes simplicity. and he fletches his own arrows so thats not a issue. accuracy does decrease after about 35 yds. ive shot schaffer mathews nap and vbg drop aways and now im back shooting the nap smart rest. very quiet and not much can go wrong.......the mathews was nice but i dont shoot them anymore so i sold that w/ the bow. shcaffers are over rated. npoisey and problematic springs. for tourneyment i dont shoot NOTHING but a diving board which i switched to three years ago from a quicktune 300 which i still have and is an excellent rest but its in the drawer now collecting dust..its too bad really. my 2 cents

In my own opinion the biscuit is great. Have never shot with a fall away rest so I can't comment on it. But the biscuit holds true accuracy for me out to 45 yards. It works great for stalking deer, you don't need to hold the arrow in place. I don't buy expensive arrows so I don't worry about the fletchings. I have shot the same arrows for the past two years. When the fletchings start to wear, I just glue them back on.

But you have to find what is comforatble for you to shoot with.

remember though, that "true accuracy" differs from person to person. everyone has there own bench mark and standards of accuracy. the whisker biscuits does everything that ducks4coach says but they do not meet MY accuracy benchmark of 1.5" groups @40yds zero to 25 ide play a game of nocks w/ anyone using a whisker biscuit on my bow after that accuracy DOES dwindle. sorry

Mainly just there's more variables to deal with than just a drop away. Your flethin has to be perfect to fly through the biscutt and have the group you want. Dont get us wrong you can kill animals with it I just would't take it to a competition. The only reason i'd get one is if I hunt and stalked.

thats exactly right. down in penn. we do a lot of spot and stalk huntin in those huge hay feilds and the whisker biscuit on one of my dads bows is so handy. i have to keep one finger over my arrow to hold it in place if i tilt my bow real hard and find myslef more worried about that then the actual stalk. for hunting purposes GO FOR IT! remember this though, there are 2 dif. size biscuits for alum. and carbon shafts........although food for thought, my ol man shoots the bigger one w/ easton axis and accuracy did not change and he gained 5 fps because of less restriction

blazers work well. same thing as a quick spin really although i wouldnt shoot quickspins through a biscuit obviously.

if your bow is tuned really good in theory you dont need any fletchings(w/ feild tips) i bare shaft all my bows once itstuned to be sure

I bought one a few months ago and would recomment one, they really seem to take any extra motion from the arrow, like the tail end "wagging".

whisker biscut

Postby the hunter » Sat Jun 23, 2007 10:30 pm

just make sure you have adjustment in the rest because I had one until the biscut fell off my bow. Iknew everything was tight on the bow because I checked it the night before I went out. It fell off walking back to my truck, which caused to miss the next days hunt because I didn't have rest for my bow just make sure its tight and stable. there is an upside and a downside to them.

Iv'e used one for 3 years now. Out here in the desert we mostly spot and stalk. It was nice to know your arrow will stay in place when your crawling through the sage brush. The last deer I shoot was at 61 yards and my arrow was right on. I practice a lot out to 80 yards and don't have any problems with arrow flight.

I have been using one for about a month and it tears/wrinkles your vanes unless you get blazer vanes. And past 50 yards the accuracy isn't as good, don't know if it was me or the biscuit but the accuracy wasn't as good. Other than that it is great, if you hunt woods deer or stalk it is a great choice. :thumbsup:

I used one on my old PSE bow successfully for two seasons. That was with the old style biscuit. Alot of guys using the older ones would cut some of the biscuit material to create some slots for the vanes to pass through. It worked okay but after awhile I grew out of favor with that rest and went back to my tried and true TM Hunter rest. When I got a new bow, I got the newer WB rest. The newer ones use different bristles and are an overall better design than the older ones. I've used mine successfully for the last few years. It is definitely not a 3D shooter rest. For hunting though, it is a very good rest. You do need to add a drop of glue to the tips of your fletch as added insurance against tearing. Doing so, I've yet to tear off a fletch. I'm happy with the WB as a hunting rest but I'm also the type that likes to try new things. I have a Quicktune drop-away that I've never put on my bow. I'm really thinking about trying that rest this season.

I've got one on my older bow. At that point in time it was the best rest out there for hunting, hands down. I was getting good accuracy out to 55 yards. And it was a quiet draw.

I have a Ripcord on my newer bow which solves the problem of total containment while also getting a drop away. I like this set up a bit more but would still respect anyone using a WB. It's a heck of a rest.
