Anyone try the Teflon Biscuit made by Vital Gear? If it works as advertised (same as a biscuit,but without fletching contact or whisker wear), then it would seem to be an actual improvement over the well established Whisker Biscuit. Anyone?

Thats not a biscuit, not even close. Plus if you read the info it uses felt pads, not even bristles.

From the way that thing looks, if your nock gets turned the slightest bit, the vane will hit the rest.

Yeah...that's the one I'm referring to, posted by Hawgfan. Basically a whisker biscuit without the bristles. Or even a Hostage rest with permanent points of contact. I guess the complaint on the hostage has been the individual points of contact, brushes, wear fast. Maybe this solves that problem too?

Looks like a NAP 360.

Most rest need to give a little at the contact points. Don't know if this one does that or not.

That's why most launchers are bristles or spring steel.

Ever watch an arrow leave a bow in slow motion? U-tube has a bunch of videos to watch. The arrows whip and wobble like all get out. I'm thinking that a rigid, full contact rest like this wouldn't be good for arrow flight and might just take a beating

Good point. If the oscilation of the shaft due to torque from the bowstring were curtailed, then may that have a negative effect on accurac?. I'm not an experienced archer, or even a physics major (nor do I play one on TV), but does a whicker biscuit curtail arrow shaft "wiggle" also? I'm fairly accurate with my whisker biscuit, but have been contemplating a drop-away to minimize any rest interference.
