I bought a QuickTune 360 and used it last year. My groups were tight. Changed out to a cheap whisker biscuit. OOOPS.

My groups are about to drive me insane. Thinking about swapping to a capture drop away or the quick tune route again.

You know me, I do not like biscuits for that reason—the arrow is in contact with the bow for a longer period of time, which gives greater chances of the arrow being "moved" by form or shot issues.

Drop-aways offer the exact same advantages, full containment, as the biscuit. As long as they are timed correctly, the benefits gained with tighter group patterns can be significant versus the biscuit.

changed to a Ripcord last year from a biscuit. Love it. I think drop aways are the way to go.

I shoot just fine out to 40 yards with my whisker biscuit and getting great groups broadheads and it took 2 shots I think to paper tune the bow.. I bought a QAD pro HD rest for $25 and haven't put it on yet because I'm doing so good with the biscuit

anyone who blames the biscuit needs to look at other problems!!! its form or setup a biscuit has no ill effect on your groups or shooting what soever if its set up right and you can shoot.

Umm...okay. I somewhat can agree with part of that, but not everyone is blessed with perfect form, nor equipment and "can shoot" as you say.

Too many great drop away rests for me to even consider a biscuit!! Plus they don't let the bow perform as good as It could!

I have used one on my last 2 bows. Minimum set up or maintenance plus it is what I want to use.

4 inside a coke bottle top with 1 more touching it. Good enough grouping for me. I can usually keep 3 in the top out to 40 on a good day.

I shoot a WB, guess it does ok but the slack around the arrow has to make room for a looser group, mite try something differnt next year .

Good form and setup with a WB are key ! I can shoot just as accurate with a WB as I can with a drop away ......

how does a biscuit stop a bow from performing? the 2fps that it cost you?

Pretty confident in my ability to shoot. I've done this twice in a year at 20 yards with a 1987 Browning Magnum Plus. This was yesterday afternoon before I posted this thread.

I've shot through a friends cronos at 20 yards. I'm fairly sure that if there any question about my ability to shoot it would have come up then.

The key here is "cheap whisker biscuit". Another friend from here had donated a better one than I have for a bow for my young men's ministry that hasn't materialized yet. Much better than what I had. I swapped and within a few minutes was shooting bulls eyes. And better groups. My point? All equipment is not made equally.

Switched to a biscuit 3 years ago. I have no problems with groups... I'm happy I made the change.... I have to agree with knightrider...

I use a biscuit on my browning ballistic mirage, and I will never use another rest. Ive tried a few others, and nothing compares to it. Completely quiet , no chance of your arrow falling out, no adjustments needed ever once set, I shoot up to 30 yards and my arrows touch in their groups, so for my setup... perfect

I have had excellent results using a whisker biscuit for the last 10 years on my Hoyt Razortec. I just purchased a Hoyt Carbon Element and mounted a WB on it with the same results. For a hunting bow, I have no need to use anything else.

Had never used one until three weeks ago when I bought a new bow with a WB already installed. With some minor adjustment both broadheads and field points group together, and fly straight. I like the fact that the WB holds my arrow in place. My old bow was 30% letoff and new one is 75%. My shooting form and release is less forgiving with 75% letoff.
