whisker biscuit or drop away rests?

Postby burris » Thu Aug 28, 2008 3:39 am

 I am looking to by a new rest, I was thinking about buying the whisker biscuit. I was wondering how loud the biscuit is, and if you are able to shoot helicle fletching through it.

The bisciut to me isn't very loud. I'm happy with it, but the helicle fletchings could be a concern. I've fletched some right wing 4 degree offset and noticed a slight lag vs straight fletchings. I do shoot feathers thru the bisciut with no problems.

I went with a drop away on my new bow. It's smooth and fast. I had a whisker biscuit on my old bow. Its nice, because it holds the arrow in its place. The big down fall on it however is it slows the arrow down about 20fps.

Has anyone tried the new Octane, can't remember the name, basically the same as a biscuit but only 3 contact points, so you can shoot whatever vanes you want, but do have to worry about the orientation. I shoot the biscuit, I didn't realize it slowed the arrow down that much though.

the deer wont notice either. The wb is a great hunting rest. No moving parts to fail, no strings to snag or break and gives good accuracy.

Whisker Biscuit all the way.  No moving parts, keeps the arrow contained, arrow doesn't rattle on the whiskers.  It's quiet, I can't hear it at all.

I prefer the Whisker Biscuit over the drop away any time..holds the arrow in place alot better with little movement

WB for sure. As for 20fps i doubt that as im still hitting 305 out of my switchback @ #70 with a 402 grain arrow.
