    This might be something alot of guys do, but most people I show have never seen it. Why I dont know its very simple. I started shooting a biscuit several years ago but couldnt get the speed I wanted and would also get some funky flight. So I got out the razor blade and the chrony. I gained 6fps in about 5minutes. Some guys might cuss me say it wont work, say its been done, just plain gripe about the biscuit. Some guys do shoot them though and this will help.

    Why not just buy a bow doodle instead?

    I shoot with a Whisker Biscuit also, but I saw the Octane Hostage Arrow Rest the other day which is like a Whisker, but the vanes don't touch anything. The 'whiskers' are only in contact with the arrow itself.

    I am sure the bow doodle work work great Iand I have pondered over trying one several times. I like how with the biscuit holds my arrow in place even if I turn the bow sideways, upside down, or however. when stalking I generaly have no worries just draw and shoot. I have bumped a limb or some thing and pushed the arrow in to the area I notched out. lets just say the arrow go no where near its intended spot

    I just looked at the Octane Hostage Arrow Rest. Does the brush part hold firm against the arrow? looks like it might cause alot of drag. The biscuit's I shoot are for aluminum arrows so the hole is larger. the brushes dont drag as bad.

    The octane ones are junk the bristles wear out real fast.
    I have the biscuit on my bows I have no loss in speed or accuracy

    None at all? :scratch

    I'd like to know how you've managed to eliminate the force needed to push your fletches through the whisker biscuit.

    I'd also like to know how you've eliminated the friction the center ring of the whisker biscuit applies to the arrow as the shaft bends and flexes when leaving the bow.
