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.

I can stack them with a biscuit. No problems here.

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!
