Whisker biscuits

I use a whisker buscuit and my veins just start coming off after shooting a couple of times. Is their a certain tipe of glue to use or do whisker buscuits do that. :livid:

Not sure of the glue type, but they say the blazers work the best with the whisker biscuit... I switched to a drop away last year and have NO regrets....

I had the same problem. I had a whisker biscuit on my bow when I first bought it and it didnt take me long to change.

Are you sure the rest is installed properly? I've never had a WB tear the fletchings off after a few shots. Mostly they just kind of "ruffled" the edges.

In fact, my last bow shot around 315-325 fps and I only had one arrow with slightly deformed fletchings.

Maybe you should take it to a bow shop to make sure everything is aligned properly.

Are your vanes fletched to the bare shaft, or do you use arrow wraps? Some vanes don't adhere right if the arrow shart isn't prepped right before fletching. Wraps take care of that.

You also may have rest or nock point issues. Shoot it through the paper and make sure everything is lined up. If you're getting a good bullethole, it's an adhesion problem.

WB's are the way to go when hunting....No moving parts equals piece of mind when the chips are down.

I've shot a WB for a long time and the only problem I had with vanes were them wrinkling. I like the fletchtite platinum glue and always put a dab at each end of the vanes. Also it seems to me that the Duravanes Savages (4") and Predators (2") vanes holds up better with the biscuit.
