I've shot a WB for the past 3 yrs and with all the talk about drop away's is there any advantage to changing. I use to shoot a TM hunter style rest for years and switched to the WB and there was a drastic improvement in arrow flight. I am always looking to improve and I'm hoping you guys can provide some feedback :D.

There was a thread going earlier today about biscuits with some good info. The only downside I had w/ it was tough on fletching, I switched to a fallaway because of that. I do like the way the biscuit holds the arrow in place a little better but don't miss it too bad.

If you have a WB setup properly and have good shooting form , there isn't much difference in arrow flight within effective hunting range with a WB and drop away .
I had drop aways on two of my bows and took them off for hunting ,and replaced them with a WB on one bow ,and NAP 360 on the other .
I can shoot just as good with the capture rests , and I like the simplicity of them over the drop away rests .
I like to keep things simple for hunting .

I have used the drop away rest for 5 years now, love it and no regrets at all. Sweet and always easy on the fletch. Havent dropped an arrow off of the arrest either.........

I have found the NAP 360 to be easier to tune and easier on fletchings , but you can still bump the arrow off the rest .

I've shot several different rests and I like WB the best because of the fact it holds arrow sucurely and also the new version with v cut makes for easy loading as well

I have been using one since they first came out , and have never had them rip the fletchings off of a properly fletched arrow when the WB is setup properly .

I shoot a WB2 quick release version. Have for three years...with Fletchings. I target shoot alot more than hunt due to the job. I will say with three inch fletches I have NEVER torn one off the bow shooting thru the WB. I have had some wear after a great number of shots on the outside of the flethings but not enough to chage the flight of the arrow ir affect accuracy. Fletchings/Vanes or whatever you use will eventually wear or bend or whatever on a target anyway. If the WB is correctly set up (Thanks Frankie @ Woods&Waters) you will not have a problem with fletchings, vanes or anything else. I cant answer for the original WB, but then again thats why they improve and make better or upgraded models.
