Default Whisker Biskits

I have had a whisker biskit on my bow for quite some time now and I do realize they take away some speed but I wanted to hear some opinions on them and what you might replace one with.

I love Muzzy Zero Effect, its fool proof. If you like the ideal of a whisker biscuit they make a drop away biscuit now.

if you're into this style like a biscuit rather than a drop-away, i've heard good things about the hostage octane. fewer brushes means you give up less speed than with a biscuit and less wear and tear to your fletchings.

just saw this for the first time. looks like the one the post above but the brushes retract when the arrow is released. haven't heard anything about them yet.

splittine, is this like the drop away whisker biscuit you mentioned?

IF ( and that is the big word) your bow is set up properly, then a biscuit only costs you between 2-10 fps.

If the bow isn't tuned properly however, it could cost you in the 14-20 fps range.

The biscuit is a fine (HUNTING) rest if tuned properly. I have shot biscuits in the past, and now I'm shooting a QAD Ulta rest Pro hunter ( drop away) that works very well.

The biscuit has no moving parts which is an added plus for hunting applications.

I have had a Whisker Biscuit on my last bow for 3 years and liked it. When I bought my new bow this summer I also equiped it with one. I switched after getting embarassed by buddys who shot a QAD drop away rests. I put a QAD on my bow and I was driving nails after a couple shooting sessions. The Biskit was/is a fine hunting rest but my drop away has performed much better. I am not the greatest shot in the world and probably don't shoot enough but in my case the Biskit was not nearly as accurate/consistant.

Looks like it, think they might have a few different ones.

you'd actually be surprised that you only lose about 2-5 fps with a WB. i did a lot of research on the subject a few months ago and found a lot of solid evidence where people were seeing very little change in speed when they chrono'd WB vs fallaways. a WB will be a little louder usually.

if you're comfortable with the WB, and you're shooting with confidence, why change??

if you do want to get away from the whiskers, muzzy seems to be great. they have a new fallaway this year that you can install without a bowpress and reasonably priced. one of the coolest things about the muzzy zeroeffect and xcellerator is th big "claw" they have that holds the arrow so you can lay the bow in your lap, and when you pick it up, the arrow is in the right spot. where as some fall aways, you have to keep the bow upright and draw without tilting the bow or you lose your arrow off the rest.

When you are in the quiet woods bowhunting weary willey deer a wisker biscut is not the ticket, plus it tends to tear off fletchings after a while. I don't like it at all.

Thats what I have been noticing. I am going through a dozen arrows a year regardless of shooting deer, the WB eats the crap out of fletchings.
