Bow making noise while drawing

Noticed my arrow seems to be dragging my whisker biscuit kinda loud. Anyone have any suggestions on how make it quieter or should I change to a fall away rest?

you can polish your arrows with pledge seemed to help when I used a whisker bisquit,,,, you can change out the disk of the bisquit,,, I went to a drop away rest and have not had any problems with noise my fall away also wrapped in mole skin

Oil your wheels with a light machine oil you can also wax your arrows I used a silicone spray on my arrows if you use wax rub several with a towel to remove any build up. As far as the rest I have used both a qad dropaway and a wisker biscut you get a little better arrow flight with the dropaway but I say if it isnt broken no need to fix it I had to give up my compound this year due to health issues but has been my passon for many years any more tuning issues feel free to ask have tuned a many of bows shot ibo tournaments for 20 years

the whisker bisquit is a great rest. What happens over time and shooting the end of the bristles get hard,,, and they do sell just the bristled disk now so if the waxing of the arrows doesn't fix the problem a replacement disk is available
