    WD40 be careful when using it. It is a degreasent & will remove all lubrication from mechanical parts. By all means use it as a deep cleaner then you must dry off & reapply a suitable lubricant such as graphite powder or Tri Flow. I do know since i ride motocycles & it is the one product we steer well clear of unless trying to remove a rusted exhaust stud

    Whisker biscuit is like training wheels on a bike it's nice to start with but once you get going it's time to move to a dropaway.......ya thats something you would here on AT isnt it....But really ive used both over the years and i prefer a dropaway for me im more accurate at farther distance's and i can get the same containment from many dropaway rest.
    But there's absolutely nothing wrong with a WB...................

    i use the quad hunter rest on all my bows and if they are set right they are better than sliced bread. and they are very easy to set. set the trip cable tight enough for the 2 little white lines under the thumb bar to align. now i didn't say this and don't agree with it, i don't want no one to get mad i'm just repeating what a martin dealer said, WB are for little boys and girls .

    I have used both and not had any problems with either. Used the biscuit for 10 years, but switched to a QAD ultra rest on new bow. Never had a fletch tearing issue with biscuit either.

    well a buskit contains the arrow and it also slows it down a little when it goes hrough and it can mass up your shot by torking your bow but a drop away elimiATES all thoes things

    FYI: your taking to someone with four decades of riding, mostly dirt and know all about WD-40. That was a poor choice of brand names for this topic.........I guess I used "WD-40" as a generic term for a lube as I hear some use "Jeep" for a 4x4 regardless of brand.
    I actually use same lubes I use on my guns, like Hoppe's products, Rem-Oil or maybe mentioned Tri-Flow. Lubes I know won't freeze or thicken and cause problems during cold late hunts.
