Whisker biscuit, who has one?

Ok here's the thing, I have an old Trophy Ridge shakey hunter rest. I'm looking to get a new rest and I'm thinking of either the WB or the Revolution. What I want is for you guys to really sell me on either of the two rests. I like the idea of the WB but not sure about vane damage if there is any. Also like the simplicity of them. So I need you guys to give me your input only if you have owned either of these two rests.

skinnin' and grinnin'

I've had the WB Droptine for a long time. I totally love it.
Perfect arrow flight, quiet, and it retains the arrow at rest.

Alrighty then!

had a WB dumped it yrs ago for the shakey hunter and havent even thought about going back. Quieter, no arrow falling off issues. Awesome accuracy.

Your spot I NEVER go back
My spot I expect the same

Quad HDX. Will do everything a WB will do with no vane contact.

Camp life,it don't get much better!

Re: Whisker biscuit, who has one?

Can't go wrong with the WB. I never had any issue with vane damage. I think the only issue i ever had was it froze up during a hunt where it was freezing rain. Of course everything froze up that day.

Some say you should shoot minimal helical with the WB, others say it does not matter. I personally found that when shooting fixed heads and needing the helical for stabilization, the QUAD performed better.

Went to the QUAD HDX, groups got tighter.

RIP Tuff 98-11, So many hunts, so many good times!

Re: Whisker biscuit, who has one?

I used a WB for one summer just because I figured it couldn't work.I was actually surprised how well it worked and I liked the simplicity.However,I went back to a dropaway because I noticed a difference in accuracy.It wasn't a huge difference but it was noticeable enough to effect my confidence level.I have an octane rest on my son's bow and I like it a little better than the WB.
