Outdoorsman Review:

After using a blade type rest for so long the whisker biscuit was well welcomed by me. I did not have the new Quick Shot with the reference marks. I had the original Quick Shot. The nice thing about the whisker biscuit is that it is very fast to load an arrow. I won a contest at a local 3D shoot which entailed shooting a clay pigeon and then shooting through two targets that were attached to metal arms that swing after the clay pigeon was shot. This required a fast load of the second arrow.

The original Quick Shot was a bit difficult to adjust because it doesn’t have graduation marks and it angles down from the mounting hole. However; after it was adjusted it worked fine. I understand that the new version of the Quick Shot is easier to adjust.

I was told when I bought the original Quick Shot that I needed to be really careful with it because it tends to bend if you set the bow down on the whisker biscuit side. I was always careful to do this but I did start to notice stress cracks in the anodizing. I also understand that the new version is much more robust.

I stopped using whisker biscuits due to the cost of replacing the inserts. I really liked the whisker biscuit but I didn’t like how fast the whiskers would wear out. I moved to the NAP Apache drop down rest so I didn’t have to worry about replacing the biscuit.

What I like about the Trophy Ridge® Quick Shot:

Speed of loading arrows.

What I don’t like so much:

Slow to adjust. Cost of replacing biscuits.
