Whisker Biskit Noise

Ok, I have always shot carbon arrows with my Biskit. This past weekend I shot some new Easton Aluminum arrows. The carbons have some extra room around the shaft. Not the same with the larger diameter aluminum arrows. While drawing the new Eastons I did notice some noise, however small. I think if you are going to get the Whisker Biskit, you may want to decide on the size of the aperature of the hole in the Whisker Biskit depending on the type of arrows you are planning on shooting. I don't think the noise I was able to hear was loud enough to make that much of a difference to discount the Biskit completely.

They do come with different hole sizes now that you mention it

You can get rid of any noise by coating the w/b with armour all. once it is dry there is no smell and your arrows will not make any noise. I have used the w/b for 4 years and will never switch back to a drop away.

Whisker Biscuit Rest

ive only been shooting for a month now. my bow came wth the whisker biskit. over all i liked it because its a great rest for a beg but only at 20yrds and less but when i got past there i found it unreliable for longer shots because of personal movement. last night i got myself a drop away rest and i absolutly love it. at 30 yrds tonight after i got my pins re sighted in, i shot a 3" group wth 6 arrows and most of them was in the bulls eye region... so for a person to start wth, sure they are ok for peeps who are learning their form and all that but over all, would not go back to that ever again.

I like a bisit just because the arrow will stay on no matter what way you hold your bow.
Now another thing they say is to use is straight fletching when shooting with a biscit. If you use to much helicul it will throw your arrow off. You can keep your draw thru them quiet by putting a spray on them to help keep them waterproof and quiet.

I use the QAD Ultra-Rest Pro HD drop away........if you release slowling it stays up in position and won't allow your arrow to fall out. Timing for the let down is VERY easy as it has adjustment at the sight for fine tuning after you install it. It even comes with a DVD to show you how to install it!

Whisker Biscuit Rest

I shoot a two prong rest that I made into a drop away rest and have been shooting it for 3 seasons and I love it.

But I just saw this new Drop away Wisker Bicuit it's called theTRI-VAN Arrow rest.
Its made by Mid Alantic Archery I might give this a try. It has 3 small bristle-tipped prongs that hold arrow then they fall away upon release, just like a drop away rest.

Drop away!..Can't go wrong with a Trophy Ridge Dropzone even tho your arrow has the potential to fall off the rest if not paying attention which is the only con of that rest and the only positive thing about the whisker biscuit,which holds them great..use to shoot one when i shot 4 in. veins but the veins were warping bad! if i were you id try 2 in. blazer veins with a drop away rest..They shoot awesome!

i sugest to get a drop away because the give you a better group at longer ranges but... if you dont like he chance of your arrow falling off get the whisker

Whisker Biscuit Rest

i like the arrow rest that came with my bow it has the 3 brushes on it and u can replace those. ive shot over a thousand arrows threw it so far and the brushes havent worn out yet and i still like it. not sure the name of it but ive had the bow about a year and go to the range about 3 times a week for a few hrs each and had no problems. i bought replacement brushes for it for about 5$ and still haven replace them yet. i have them for back up only. i like them a lot
