If I were switching from a regular rest to a whisker Biscuit, what would be the best vanes to use on my arrows (4" or Blazers)?

Blazers. 4" vanes will look like a waded up newspaper after passing through a Biscuit.

I use 2" Blazer with my Whisker Biscuit and have no complaints.
The 2" is Blazer is more duarble and slows the arrow down less than 4"

I've shot 4" vanes with my w.b. since I bought my bow and have never had a problem with it tearing them off or wadding them up. I can see how it would slow down your arrow speed though.

I use feathers and you would be surprised at the durability through a WB . The edges get a little rough , but they hold up well .
In vanes , I would say any vane made by Bohning Archery is a good choice . They are a stiffer plastic , and hold up better than any rubber based vanes .
Bohning makes the 2" Blazers , but they also make some quality 4" vanes if you want to stick with 4" vanes .

I have used both. I never had a problem with the 4" becoming wavy. Whichever you go with, put a drop of glue on the front of the vane.

I also use super glue gel when I fletch arrows . It's adheres good to carbon shafts .

I use 2" blazers and no problems though the biscuit. As mentioned, put a dab of glue on the front of the vane for extra measure.
