    When I was in college I worked at the local sporting goods store. On a side note, I'm still looking for a new shop as it was blown away by a tornado nearly a year ago. I live in Joplin, MO where we got hit with an F5. Kind of sad to see my old employer that had been in business since the 50s just disappear.

    Anyway, while I worked there I probably saw twice as many whisker buscuits come through the door than anything else. It's a proven rest, and the one I use. Only negative I can see (and this isn't to be dismissed) is a little noise. I've worried about it some when treestand hunting. I still probably won't change any time soon.

    I like the whisker biscuit as well. I know there are more accurate rests out there but when crawling through c.r.p, milo, or weeds, I think a full capture rest w/ no moving parts is critical. Sometimes just before you nock an arrow you have to pull out grass from your sights and rests, the whisker biscuit is no maintainence.

    Can't beat the simplicity of a biscuit. I'll likely never use another drop-a-way again.

    I love my QAD! Had a trophy taker and it failed me. However I do have a whisker biscuit for my back up!

    I had a QAD and it worked great, but it was loud. I switched to a ripcord and couldnt be happier. Full containment and quiet.

    yep, it seems solid too. I suppose any mechanism can fail, but this unit responds so clean. I sense the machining is superb.

    Thanks for all the replies! I've tried more rests in the last year than all my years combined - and I'm even suprising myself at this point in that I look to be settling on the whisker biscuit. It makes no sense to me - I have spent 18 years of bowhunting/archery taking all precautions to avoid vane/rest contact and microtune my bow to perfection...but that is all in my garage - when I'm stalking an animal nothing will beat this whisker biscuit for speed of loading and being able to twist and turn my bow upsidedown or whatever while maneuvering...on top of it, my accuracy is pin-point still.
    Slow motion cameras have also opened my eyes to what is really going on when you release an arrow out of 300fps bow...things are bending, shifting, torguing, you name it...no rest truly keeps that arrow a perfect dart the whole cycle anyway.

    All rests will work just fine - confidence should be a major factor for everyone - and mine is sky high with the whisker biscuit.
    I hope everyone has a successfull/safe 2012!
