Have used whisker biscuits on my bows for at least 10 years.
Unless you are a competition shooter, the whisker biscuit is hard to beat for hunting purposes. When stalking, having an arrow ready in my rest and not having to worry about it popping out of it is very nice. I have never had any problems with vanes peeling back. If that's happening to you, maybe you not applying enough glue on when putting your vanes on or you should spend a little more money on a better quality arrow (vanes already on..) setup. I've even used feathers and had no problems. As for accuracy, I'm shooting a 6 inch group from 40 yards just fine. It may slow the arrow speed down some, but as long as I'm hitting where I want to hit and most of my shots are going clear through the animal at 45 yards or less, (not one to shoot farther than that at an animal...) I'm happy.

Way better than felt pads.
By Calvin R. Stiff, Jr.
I'm really glad that I was introduced to the whisker biscuit. I was in search of adhesive felt when I bought this. An experienced archer friend told me that he loved using them and that I would too. So far he's right but I do have one major gripe about the manufacturer and not so much the product itself. The product is solidly constructed of aluminum and some sturdy looking abs type plastic and works as advertised. My problem is with the mounting and adjusting bolt sizes. The mounting bolt is a 3/16 hex and the windage adjusting bolt is a 5/32 hex. It just doesn't make sense to me that the bolts don't use the same sized fastener. The archery manufactures need to think of the customer's needs in the field when they design this stuff.
January 11, 2014, I've recently bought a Tekton ball end hex key set specifically for my bow box. I've discovered that most sets you can find include these sizes so finding the tools shouldn't be a problem. I'm still upset that I need to carry so many tools to perform such basic adjustments.

if you are looking for a rest that is easy to set up and works no matter the conditions, the whisker biscuit is the rest to get. you can spend more money on a rest too, with micro adjust and camo, but this one will do everything the other rests will do. there is a lot of discussion about the way the bristles affect arrow flight. as with anything else on your bow, consistency is the key to accuracy. obviously the bristles touch the fletchings. and my fletchings get the dark streaks from that contact. but accuracy has never been an issue. and i have never had this rest pull fletchings off unless the fletching was loose to begin with. you can spend more and get more complicated with your rest, but you dont have to. this one will do the job well.
1/28/15 update: i see 0 of 1 found my review helpful. i wonder if they didnt like my review, or the product i was reviewing. there is a lot of hype and propaganda about archery equipment nowadays. i shoot whisker biscuits on 3 of the 12 bows in my house. i have no sponsers, nor do i feel "brand loyalty" for products, since i paid my own money for them. you can get pretty fancy with your rest, drop aways and such, and there are even fancier models of the biscuit with more adjustment options. i like this one because set up is quick and painless and tho it puts the "dark mark" on my fletchings, it has not affected accuracy in a negative way for me on any bow i run one of these on. i have never had a biscuit fail. even whisker replacement is easy. so as i alluded to in my review previously, this is a GREAT arrow rest and i would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. btw, there are certain bows that require a little different configuration, so make sure that the biscuit you choose fits your specific bow.
