When Is It Time to Replace a Whisker Biscuit?

3655 7
I've been shooting through a Whisker Biscuit for the past couple of years. The bristles on the bottom left are starting to stick out of the biscuit a little bit. Does anyone know when it is time to replace the biscuit?

I'd like to get a drop-away for hunting at some point, but right now the new biscuit looks like the better option for my budget.

Sounds like yours is just getting broken in. I have seen people replace the biscuit becuse it looked worn but if it still works why change it?

I just replaced my biscuit this year. Had four years on the original but the bottom bristles were starting to get weak and not support my arrow properly. Put a new one on there for peace of mind if nothing else.

I was in Illinois last year and was shooting at the range after a morning hunt when I noticed my bow was shooting real low.
Of course the problem was that my whisker biscuit was worn out and it took me two hours to find a shop that had one. I hadnt had it more than a year.
Safe to say I keep a spare at all times now...

When I first got my biscuit, my fletching were tearing off whiskers in the bottom left hand corner. I was pretty angry and confused. It has stopped now, but the sides were uneven. So yesterday i took some scissors and cut out the same amount of whiskers on the other side. I guess its more for my conscious than anything, cause it really didnt do anything lol. I think I will buy a drop rest instead of another biscuit tho, and maybe try out some FOBs aswell :tongue:

It is probably fine, but if you are feeling uncertain about it than replace it. I think feeling all of your equipment is in working order is very important.
