    I used to use the wb on my switchback (28inch 70 lb.) but when I changed to small diameter axis arrows I had trouble with the arrows actually getting pushed into the biscuit and flying terrible. I tried some other biscuits and could not get it to work. I now use the ripcord and it works fine. I like the biscuit, even put one on my sons Q2 but he only shoots 50lb. I think with higher poundage and small diameter arrows the biscuit does not hold up……….anybody else have this problem?

    :D First of welcome to the Forum :thumbup

    We have many shooters here using the WB with bows in the 70-73 lb range with none of the problems you just described, the small Dia shafts like the Axis ST should use the Small biscuit..

    A properly tuned bow of 73 lbs will not shoot any different thru the WB than from a 50 Lb properly tuned bow..

    Very nice post and thanks for the time spent doing this test m8.
    I been shooting WB for sometime now and love it, I am one of the old timers that dont put all my marbles into speed but good tuned right equipment.
    Drop away rest are nice I feel for the 3d range but for out in the stand rugged hunting the WB earns all my respect cause I know when I nock the arrow it is going to stay there and not make noise when the moment counts.
    Great thing about this site is the many different thoughts and advise you can read here from tried and true hunters.

    You guys have the coolest toys :thumbup

    I want to come play in your toyshop!

    Thanks for the info. Yet another reason not to use a WB. :D[/quote:1s1arg7h]

    I don’t use one, but how can you conclude you shouldn’t use one with that evidence he just presented? Sounds like the way to go if they weren’t noisy!

    :p They can be made to draw as silent or near as a drop away with the right arrows…

    :D In my Opinion the Ulgy Cookie [WB] is far better than the Octane Hostage Pro Capture Rest

    The Octane Hostage Pro Capture Rest may be a little easier on vanes
    but there still is the chance to knock the arrow to one side of the bristles in the heat of the action…

    Using proper vanes such as the Duravane Savage eliminates any vane problems
    loss of speed is minimal compared

    perhaps if the Ulgy Cookie wasnt around that may be my top choice…

    I have used my WB in all temperatures, humidity, snow, sleet, rain, dry. It is and has always been dead silent. Even shooting in my basement I have never heard an noise at all. I have used an original WB and now have a Sure Shot Pro. I love it the improvements.

    Years ago I talked to the originator of the WB. He told me that the only reason the WB was made with different size holes for different diameter arrows was because customers demanded it. He said you were best to use the large size hole even with the smallest size arrow. I still use the WB with the large (aluminum arrow) size hole even though I am using the little skinny nano arrows. My question is what idiot would use a WB with a hole smaller than the diameter of their arrow? If you did, of course you would lose fps. and probably have poor accuracy also. Try your test again with a large hole WB and report not only the velocity but the accuracy. Thanks, Tom

    To address the noise of the WB when drawing the bow back, it is caused by the finish on the arrow. Some arrows have a rougher finish, just buy smoother arrows or use a q tip and rub a little cotton on the supporting bristles.
    The fellow who had poor accuracy when using a small diameter arrow had his arrow nock set to high. The arrow should be just above level. I set mine at 1/16 of an inch.
    The fellow who had bristles that were mussed up and felt that would cause pulling on his arrow did not have the centershot set correctly. Look up walk back tuning and set your rest correctly. Remember the WB is so forgiving that even when you have it set poorly it still works well. Set it up well and it works even better. Tom.
