I just got a new whisker biscuit and put it on my PSE Baby-G and ran into a problem. With the very short brace height when I put arrow in I have a good 1" of my 4" vane allready into the biscuit it makes for lots of noise when I draw and just does not look right. Question is should I switch to 3" vanes and will I notice a big change in arrow flight or can I moove the 4" vanes all the way back to the nock will this affect arrow flight also. I shoot PSE 300 with 2gr per " weight tubes and a 125gr tip.

Fletching in the Whisker Biscuit on a Low Brace Height Bow

I had the same clearance problems with a Martin Fury bow, my solution was to go with 3" fletch. The arrow speed increased. I was curious how much more I could go so I trimmed both sides of the biscuit final result was 306 FPS @67# with a 385 grain arrow.

HUNT,
I experienced a simular problem with my Whisker Biscut rest. All I did was go to a high profile 2 3/4" vane and fletch them on the shaft to within a 1/4" of the nock or the end of the shaft.

The farther fletching is to the rear of the arrow, the flight will be much better.

I love this rest and wish it'd came out years ago. It's solve a lot of problems for me, while hunting.

Good hunting, Bowhunter57

Best thing to do with a w bisc is to take it off and either throw it in the trash or sell it on ebay. The drop away is much better in every regard. If you shoot enough to be competant with a bow, the wb will wear and make tuning a nightmare.

Whisker Biscuit or Dropaway

Actually, on a properly tillered bow the whisker biscuit doesn't seem to wear at all and tuning is a snap. The biscuit is alot more of a aide to learning how to tune the bow than any mousetrap dropaway will ever be. What could possibly be easier to understand than a rest that shows from 360degrees exactly where the center of the rest is, rather than some vacant patch of space and time above a dropaway. Frankly I find the "need" for a dropaway symptomatic of a lack of knowlege about how to tune a bow to begin with. I understand the quest to use the most modern tools and technology available but I find switchblade mechanical broadheads and mousetrap fallaways rests do offend me on a personal level and I won't use either of them. I find the silky smooth quiet draw of the whisker biscuit has more in common with the sealskin that's on the shelf of my recurves and longbows than any other rest that is available. I've been shooting and building bows and rests and sights for over 40years and I think the whisker biscuit is a real fine rest. Never criticize another man's dog. Good luck hunting!

I am out to get a new bow. When I mentioned the WB the guy kind of tried to steer me to the bodidwilly or what ever the rest is called. He next solution was a TM hunter. Also is the new quick load WB worth the extra dollars. If that is the only bene maybe the orig in the way to go.
