Who uses these? How do you like em? Thinkin about puttin one on my bow just lookin for some suggestions.
Every bowfishing bow we have here has a bowfishing biscuit on it. The forgiving nature of the biscuit makes it hands down the best all around rest for bowfishing IMO. Rushed shots and sloppy releases are the norm in bowfishing and that's where the biscuit shines!! Don't glue the bottom bristles on the biscuit like some do because that only cancels part of the benefits of the design. Yes they wear and the bristles get ugly but they still work just fine-move the rest up a hair or nocking point down to match the wear and you can get years of service out of one insert. Little Killer shoots more times than anybody on this planet and is now on his second insert.
This is an example of how good the biscuit is:
Little Killer is R/H and I am L/H but we carry only 1 spare bow tourney fishing- a R/H Discovery. If he has a bow problem-not often- he can shoot the spare bow since that's what he shoots anyways. If I have a bow problem I can shoot the R/H spare bow left handed just as well with the only drawback being having to reach around the bow to reload. Try that with any other bowfishing rest on the market and see how it works for you! Shoot right handed, left handed, upside down or go gangsta and shoot sideways the biscuit don't care. It just does it's job. As I've said before--"If you catch me fishing with anything but a biscuit on my bow, shoot me please".

All my bows have the BF biscuit. I won't shoot anything else. I haven't had any problems with the things wearing out. I got tired of the arrows bouncing off the rest on quick drawbacks and shooting nearly straight down. I don't see why a lot of people like the quick draw better. Biscuit for life!!

I guess it dont matter to the ones that shoot them but you have to use slides.

One of my first bowfishing rests was the biscuit. I used it for several years then went to the fish hook. My original biscuit has now been in service for 4 years or more on my buddies bow. It looks like hell but still works as good as it did on day one. If you are looking for a reason to get one or not, I see no drawbacks and I definitely don't see a problem with durability.

I shot the biscuit with cabled arrows for years with no problems. But if you are just trying to say you can't tie to the back of an arrow with a biscuit, I'd definitely agree! Some type of safety system would have to be used whether it be cables, slides, or rings.

I like the slides also since they help stop pass through on them tiny gar when you forget and pull back too far..

Do you guys know if the bowfishing insert will work in my regular camo hunting biscuit? I have been going between the QD and the WB and it would be cheaper to just replace the insert so any help here would be great!!

It will but buy a couple of inserts cause I think they may have discontinued the insert when they came out with the new style biscuit. There are some on Ebay.

lol... yeah like those fancy over priced Blue Dipped Color Matching WB don't look great sitting on a Wall Hanger bow too...:grin: all kidding a side... I'm found some bowfishing WB priced at the same as the QD so I'm going to give them anouther try... but I will leave my QD on my main bow because its been proven... unlike the 3 WB I have went thru... just found my last one yesterday... will snap a pic of it... it was a flunky plastic type one... before they beefed them up to alum...

I found an older style WB in the discount bin at Bass pro, scooped it up, bought a bowfishing insert for it and bingo! What a great rest, no more arrow falling off when you see a big fish and try to draw too fast. It was the old style so I had to notch it out myself ( to make it quick loading) but it was easy to do.

Is there a specific WB for bowfishing? Or do you guys just shoot the bowhunting one with a stiffer insert? Is the insert even any different from that of a standard, store-bought biscuit? I'm convinced from this thread that I need to upgrade from the Muzzy hook (which I've had absolutely no problems with, but it can be a hinderance for quick shots and lazy fishing partners who shall remain nameless, but can't hold a bow upright during slow times). Thanks for the great info, guys!

With all due respect, I think you are mistaken a bit. U don't glue bottom brissles on the bowfishing whisper buscuit. You glue the bottom brissles on the hunter models not used for fishing to stiffen them up for the heavier fish arrows. I use the hunter models and glued mine. I could be mistaken as well but think that is right. They work gr8. When it goes I will replace with the fishing model.

Glueing the bottom bristles did start out on the non-bowfishing inserts to stiffen them up for bowfishing. As time went by it became a "known fact" on here that you had to glue the bottom bristles of a biscuit.
