I saw my first one last weekend and liked what I saw. So I went and bought one but have to wait for the biscuit for aluminum arrows rather than the one for carbons that came with it. There's another thread around here about this same subject. Do a search on "whisker" (without the quotes) and see what you find.

Whisker Biscuit Arrowrest For Hunting?

Putting a whisker biscuit arrowrest on your bow to go hunting is one of the best moves you will ever make. This rest is quiet, accurate, durable, and works everytime. I've used this rest for over four years without any problems. Rain, snow, sleet, hail, or high winds this has been a completely reliable arrowrest and I wouldn't go bowhunting without one. Good luck hunting!

The Witchery of the Biscuit (How I Do It)

First make sure you have the correct spine arrows for the bow. Then set the bow for an even tiller, I back both limbs off three turns, this places the bow poundage right in the middle of the arrow spine for my arrows. Bolt the whisker biscuit on the bow. The biscuit should not be tipped forward or backward but should be parallel to the bowstring. Nock an arrow at a 90degree angle to the bowstring and set a nockpoint above the arrow. Set the windage in a neutral straight ahead position. On a righthanded bow scribe a line with a fine point marker on the windage link just outside the mounting bracket. Shoot the bow. On most righthanded bows the bowstring moves forward and about 1/8" left of center so we can predict that you will probably have to move the rest left a similar amount, scribing a line makes it easy to see where the rest was and which way and how far you are moving it. Likewise because we started the bow at an even tiller we can predict a nock high arrow in the target and remedy that by cranking in the lower limb bolt instead of working the nockpoint up and down the bowstring. For a nock low arrow you would tighten the upper limb bolt. Your efforts should result in a finely tuned bow that spits broadheads and fieldpoints into the same group. Good luck hunting!

The Whisker Biscuit is the best rest I have ever used for hunting (been hunting with a bow for 52 years and have tried many)although it is hard on some vanes. I use AAE Speed Flyte Vanes and the hold up very well.

Yes the whisker bisket is hard on vanes, what about speed on the bow.
