    I shot a whisker biscuit for years. I love how simple it is, and you obviously can't beat the price... But, I switched to a QAD Ultra Rest 2 seasons ago, and will never shoot at WB again. The QAD is just as error free as the WB, but my arrow groupings significantly improved with the QAD, especially at 40 yards and beyond.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    I know alot of guys with whisker Biskets also they are Ok...... But, just Remember there is Constant Contact with the Arrow..... So, if U Don't have a perfect form and follow thru with your shots which ever way you move your arm up, down, left or right your Arrow will also move in that direction.... FOOD FOR THOUGHT.........

    I'm a whisker biscuit fan.
    Hunting out here on the west coast I really like the way the arrow stays pretty much locked in place.
    We have to crawl, climb, and wiggle through a tangled mess of rain forrest.

    With a WB I've never had one of those moments when the arrow fell off the rest at the exact wrong moment.
    In fact after a shot at a really nice bull was scuttled, when I had to let down then redraw, and the arrow slipped down in between arms of another brand of rest, I swore I would stay with whisker biscuits.

    I used to shoot with a whisker biscuit, but you have to keep up with the Joneses, so I got the quad rest and it seems to work, but I'm not an archery expert. IMO get something with arrow containment, you see some archers hunting without it but I don't know how they keep the arrow on when crawling or stalking.

    +1 on getting something with arrow containment - not much could be worse than doing all the work to get in position for your shot and having your arrow not where it needs to be. It usually generates a lot of movement and noise, and those you can't afford right then.

    Even though I have been shooting since 2009, I consider myself still a novice in archery so I don't tinker with things too much. I am shooting a Octane Hostage and never have had a problem with it. Pretty much just like the Whisker Biscuit, except mine doesn't allow any contact to the vanes when it passes through.

    I shoot a QAD ultra rest right now, but looked into the trophy taker line as well. Trophy taker makes some great rests that are pretty much fail safe, but I got a better deal on the QAD.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    I just picked up this rest- I had been using the same WB for 10 years. Haven't been to the bow shop to have them put the new one on yet. Anyone else shoot this particular one?
