    When Hillbillyhunter turned the machete loose on his brand new biscuit he reclaimed 6fps of the speed he lost when he went to the biscuit. When he read the chrony I assumed he was going to cut the whole thing off.:l

    Trophy Ridge tells you there is a speed loss when using their "newly redesigned" whisker biscuit. They claim the loss of speed is less than what Hillbillyhunter experienced with his original Carolina Archery rest. I highly doubt Trophy Ridge would say there is a speed loss if there wasn't.

    The laws of motion are relatively simple. They also agree with Trophy Ridge, Hillbillyhunter, and countless others.

    I don't shoot a biscuit on my hunting rig because of my perceived accuracy issues with the rest. When I set up another bow fishing rig I will probably be going with a biscuit as I can't hit the damn fish anyways:z ......and a few feet per second makes no difference when you're shooting a monster arrow pulling a string.

    biscuits don't work well for bow fishing. Arrows are too heavy that they push down the bristles.

    No matter what you do it, it's still just a Whisker Biscuit...

    There is a fish biscuit with extra stiff bristles. They work great.

    I'd also venture to guess that more deer are killed with WB's than all other rests combined.

    I just took my biscuit off and replaced it with the new NAP freedom drop away rest. Now I don't have to worry about speed lose or vane interference.:dv

    I would venture to guess that you're wrong. The drop-away style is far more popular than the capture rest.

    When it comes down to it.. for a hunting rest its the best on the market.. total arrow containment, they tune great, and they are quiet, not to mention FAIL SAFE... I have been through my share of dropaways, and still came back to the WB, even for 3D.. The nostage is nice, but the bristles just wear too fast..
