I never had an old one. I just switched from a drop away to the Deluxe WB last week. So far I am very impressed and I have put hundreds of shots through it with no problems. I'm using Blazer vanes with no rippling or damage at all.

I had the old Whisker Biscuit and had no trouble with torn vanes, I think it has to do with the type of vane and the quality of the the fletching job. I'm now using the new B2 biscuit with the QS feature.

I have always used AAE Speed Flyte vanes and after fletching added a drop of glue at the leading edge (point) of fletching.

The new (brown & black) should stop any vane tears you had with the old biscuit..

I think he has the answer to your problem. I have the Deluxe also and it is vane and feather friendly. Blazers aren't bothered at all with this rest.

I'm still using an all black (pre B2) WB. VaneTec vanes work great through it so they should do at least as well through the B2.

Whisker Biscuit fix

Ok, here's how to fix your whisker biscuit......
Remove the biscuit from your bow....
Place it under the tire of a large piece of earth moving equipment such as a bulldozer, endloader, etc.
Pull forward,
Back up,
Repeat......
