Well last year when I bought a new bow the guy had a whisker biscuit on it. I used it last year and it marked up my fletchings how i don't know, does anyone else know? Or have had this problem? I have been thinking about a drop away rest but have been told they make noise. I also don't know which one would be best. Any comments?

Marked up fletchings aren't going to affect arrow flight . If the WB is working well for you , I see no reason to take it off . I think it's the best rest on the market for hunting. The choice is up to you though.

are you using a 4" vane? if so you could switch to 2" Blazers. i have several arrows with Blazers on them that have been through a biscuit probably close to 100 times and they are still fine.

Or, if you are really wanting to switch rests but still want the function of WB, you could try the new Hostage or Hostage Pro from Bowtech. Same principal as a WB but no fletching contact.

order you a limbdriver pro and your problem is solved. i was skeptical about fall aways. i have used prong style rest for years. setup a limbdriver in 10 min, set centershot and nock point and shot bullet holes on first try. there is absolutely no fletching contact whatsoever and it is the quietest rest i have used so far, as long as you place mole skin on the riser to pad the launcher. good luck with your problem.
