Carolina Archery Products---Whisker Biscuit

Joseph Purdum

For a no nonsense hunting rest this is as good as it gets. I have two Diamond Hunting Bows (models made before Bowtech bought out the company) and this is the arrow rest that I have on both of them. My shorter model (called the stinger) is only 28 inches long and does not have perfect nock travel. I tried using prong style rests and fall away rests with bad results.

Whisker Biscuit

Out of sheer frustration I bought a whisker biscuit and tried it out. To my surprise I was shooting bullet holes in no time. I am sure the arrow does not look pretty through a slow motion camera but what matters to me is that it is flying true when it leaves my bow.

I think many archers do not take the time to paper tune their bows and they should. Arrow penetration is due in large part to your arrow flying true when it strikes its target. Having said that, this rest is great for hunting. No need to worry about the arrow falling off a shelf or striking a metal riser and alarming deer. I sometimes just lay my hunting bow across my lap! All you have to do is concentrate on making a good shot!

The only drawback that I have found is the wear and tear on arrow fletchings. Probably a good idea to learn how to fletch arrows if you shoot this rest a lot. I put some arrows through a chronograph with this rest and then switched to a fall away to see if I lost any performance. You can expect to lose 0-2 feet per second. I can live with that. Awesome for hunting is all I have to say.
