    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

    I will second this. I used to shoot Axis sized arrows through the medium biscuit not knowing there was a small size and the accuracy was amazing. I switched to the smaller size when the new biscuit came out and wasn’t getting as good of groups. I’ve since switched to gold tips and put on the large size replacement biscuit and the accuracy is just stunning.

    Your numbers already show that the Whisker Biscuit results in very little arrow loss – even when using an arrow with a shaft larger than the Biscuit hole size, which is not recommended (just buy a larger Biscuit if you want to use up your old large-shaft arrows). When shooting the right combination (an arrow with a shaft smaller than the Biscuit hole), along with 2 inch Blazer or Predator vanes, you’ll get less than the 2 fps speed loss you measured for the 3 inch vanes, and likely get close to or hit the 1 fps loss that the Whisker Biscuit people advertise. To never have to worry about an arrow falling off the rest, and to never have to worry about an arrow clattering on your arrow shelf when you let down from a full draw on a deer, and to be able to turn your bow sideways & upside down without losing a nocked arrow, I can’t imagine who wouldn’t be willing to give up 1 or 2 fps.[/i][/b]

    :^O Good points…but there are people who wont shoot the WB because its ugly :^O Hence why I call it the Ugly Cookie…

    and Yes believe it or not I personally know people that wont shoot it because of that 2-3 FPS… :p

    Their loss IMHO

    :D For noisy arrows in bicuit and faster speeds and also protect biscuit from freezing [never encountered that but a preventive] there is a product from SCORPION VENOM LINE OF ARCHERY LUBRICANTS and cleaners that really works

    dont over spray and keep biscuit clean and it works wonders
    highly reccomended :thumbup
