Tuning a Whisker Biscuit Arrow Rest
I love the Whisker Biscuit rest for a certain group of hunters. They are standard issue for my wife, my kids and most beginning bowhunters I help. They even work well for accomplished archers. I like it because there is no way for the arrow to fall off the rest while you are waiting or stalking. The rests are not perfect; you still need to set up your arrows correctly, or the fletching will soon be curled worse than a mallard’s tail.
First, you should use only an offset orientation for your fletching so you can slice more easily through the rest’s bristles with minimal damage to your vanes or feathers.
Second, the vanes you choose should be very durable. I’ve shot fairly soft vanes for most of my hunting, but today’s vanes make that style nearly obsolete. We have learned that stiff fletching works best to stabilize arrow flight quickly, and it also holds up much better to the Whisker Biscuit. Die-hard Biscuit users prefer vanes from Flex-Fletch, or they use Bohning Blazers. Even with a good, aggressive helical offset, these short, stiff vanes will hold their shape much longer than long, supple vanes.Add to Favorites
