Well this year I switched to the biscuit after shooting a drop away for the past 10+ years. I did this because while shooting with some friends this summer I shot a friends bow that had a wisker biscuit on it. He is about my size and we shoot identical bows so I asked if he minded if I shot his bow to see how I liked the rest. I started at 20 yards and soon learned it was dead on for the both of us. So I then stretched it out to 40 yards. I could shoot his bow better at 40 yards then my own personal bow! So this year I set up a new rig (bowtech invasion with you guesed it a wisker biscuit). I am happy I did. I have never shot better. I just wanted to share my findings In case anyone was thinking about giving one a try. I did trim some of the wiskers where my fletchings pass through the rest so they dont get torn up over time. Anybody else have similar results or a wisker biscuit shooter????

Whisker biscuit is all I've used in the last 8 years. I chose it not for accuracy, but to make sure the arrow stayed on the rest when preparing for a shot under hunting conditions.

I used one for years but use a drop away now. my son uses one for now. I have a octaine hostage for his but got to put it on a tune it. its kinda like a wisker biscute but with a place for the fletches to go thru with no contact.

 I've often wondered if one could be used for shooting with fingers but after watching some slow motion videos and seing how much a finger released aluminum arrow flexes side to side I don't know if there'd be proper clearance. But then again maybe "carbon" arrows don't flex as much.

I use a whisker biscuit and see no reason to go to a drop away.
 
It really makes my inverted, hanging from a tree, Rambo shots easier, too.

LOL, yeah I had to give those up.. My biscuit would rip my fletching off, but I do alot more shooting then most do. I shot 25 to 50 times a day. I open doors and shoot thru my house from the garage to the safe room only if its raining acourse.

I don't shoot quite as much as you, BD, but I do shoot 10-20 arrows 5 days a week (on average).  I shoot Blazer vanes, and have never had a fletching problem.

Wow. that's a little extreme BD. I guess I'm fortunate here. I drive down the road to the NFAA headquarters........... Where I shoot for free, because my wife is the office manager, and shoot several times a week. Pretty nice indoor range, and 4 outdoor ranges, with 3 of them being 3d ranges.
