I have trouble with mine messing my fletchings. Someone suggested using 2 inch vanes. Does anyone else have this problem or a solution.

I've not had a single problem out of mine. I'm using 2" Blazer vanes and super glue gel to hold them on.

I switched to the WB last season and had problems with the vanes (can't remember which ones I was using)wrinkling real bad.
About halfway through the season I switched to 2 inch Blazers and the problem went away. I believe I read something that the Blazers were designed in collaboration with the WB folks. I shoot the G5 Montec broadheads on the Carbon Express maxima shafts and have good flight and accuracy. Good luck with yours.

I have had the same problem I shoot feathers and they get eat up during the course of the season. My archery guy tried to sale me on the blazers but I think they look like crap. I am switching to the Quick Tune 360, I think it will do just as good of a job as the WB but it holds on 3 points of contact instead of all the way around the shaft. I think this will improve my arrow speed and cut down on noise a lil. JMO Anyone shooting one of these.

I shot the WB with Blazers for several years and never had any problems. Put a dab of glue on either end of the vane after you've glued it to the shaft & you'll eliminate Blazers getting ripped off.

I posted earlier about the WB and really like it. What are you guys finding on accuracy? I have never taken a WT over 23 yards. I routinely practice to 40 though. I shoot fingers and no peep sight (by choice) and was getting 4-5 inch groups at 40 yards last year with broadheads(G5 125 grain, Maxima shafts).

How does that compare with your experience? I heard the biscuit was not as accurate as a 2 prong or drop away rest.

I've shot both the WB and drop-aways and saw no difference whatsoever in accuracy. The WB is an excellent rest. I was shooting it out to 50 yards last year.

I have shot the WB for going on 4yrs and like Steven said, I don't see myself changing anytime soon. CZ, I shot fingers every since I started bow hunting 14yrs ago and when I got my last bow gave a release a try. I don't care how good you think you are with your fingers, you can shoot much better with a release. Give it a try.

I may give it a try. I'll be getting my son a bow this summer and he's going to shoot one. Guess I'm just kind of old school....

I was old school too, but I noticed much better arrow flight, and just over all better consistency. I will say one thing, don't waste your time and money on a cheap one, bite the bullet and spend the money on a good quality one and be done. Also, no cussing me the first time you leave it in your truck and get in your tree stand \:\)

Glad to hear your getting your boy a bow, sounds like you will have a shooting buddy.

Jason,
Actually he's 18 now and has been my hunting buddy since he was 4. He's went (not his own choosing) to NY with my ex for a year and a half after we divorced and couldn't stand it, moved back down here with me and the new bride 2 1/2 years ago, got into football so didn't want to bow hunt due to that schedule conflict. He's going to college (full academic ride!) here in Memphis, will live at home with us so I get 4 more years with him. Now that his fall season will be available to hunt, it's time to get him the bow. He took his first buck at 10, has taken at least 15 others, and is a real good woodsman, very ethical and quite often we hunt together just to enjoy the quality time. He's a great kid and I'm very proud of him. He's now taking other kids hunting with hi when we can't go together, in fact, he called in a gobbler for a friend of his this year to get his buddy his first bird. Nice to see what you passed on being passed on!

He's looking real hard at the Black Diamond or the PSE X Force. Should make a final decision real soon, so I'll probably go to the release when he gets his bow.

Thanks again for the advice.

Sounds like a great kid, and sounds like he has a pretty good dad too. I hope you guys have some great times and I'm pretty sure you will. If a PSE is a possibilty, he may want to check out the AR'S(Archery Research) bows. I went from a PSE to an AR and like it alot.

Good Idea- thanks. I think one of the guys where we were looking mentioned AR but they didn't have one in a lefty for him to try. Will definitely put it on the list.

I switched to the WB after the quick release rest was tearing up all my arrows. No problems out of the WB so far. Using carbon arrows straight from Walmart fletching that came with them.

How about trimming it so it has three hold points or so some parts are thinner and provides less resistance?

Why buy something you have to r with when you can get something superior right off the get-go?

WBs and similar technology were fine at one time but they are obsolete.

Why pollish a ______ (insert your word here)? But by all means, feel free too freeze-dry it, deodorize it, plasticize it, hang it on a gold chain around your neck but in the end... you still have a (what's that word I'm looking for?).

done fine by me with regular 4 in. fletching. Yes it may slow it down a little but not enough that it changes anything. Yes it may not mean you shoot 1 inch groups but 2 inch groups. Big deal. I just like the fact that the arrow will never go bouncing around. Once its in its in. When you draw back you never have to worry about the arrow falling of the rest. sure there are better rest. But for a good every day bowhunter its hard to beat.

Dang, this is an old thread! But three years later, my opinon is the same. EVERY bow I hunt with will have a WB. I';ve expereinced no problems with mine in about 5 years of hunting with them, but I know a LOT of people that had problems and lost deer because of the drop-away rest malfunctioning, the prong-style rest making noise, the arrow falling off the rest, etc.

Use whatever you want, but I know what I'll use.

My bow guy talked me out of one of those bc the bristles wear out three times as fast as the wb.
