My carbon arrow shafts make an almost squeak noise when I draw them through the whisker biscuit - I've gotten recommendations for Scorpion Venom "Biscuit Spray" arrow release fluid - it's $10+ for a bottle, and I would only use a little teeny bit...

Anyone familiar with this stuff and/or know of anything that is similar that could be used, like something around the house? Can't be rocket science but I have no idea what this stuff is made of...

I've shot a whisker bisket for about 6 years now in every type of weather you could imagine from 70degree and sunny days to 5degree and snowing, with near freezing temp days and rain in between. I have never had any of the squeaking issues mentioned ever. This is actually the first time I have ever heard of this.

TMI

buff type carbon? the rep at the company told me that carbon arrows that have a "textured" type surface from the carbon fibers are what make the noise, it's not the rest it's the arrows. smooth arrows don't cause it.

one of the guys said he used a fine grit sandpaper lightly on his but this isn't recommended in nitro's case could cause irritation

scorpion venom is great stuff, the container will last u a long time, its worth the money. can be used on every moving part of your bow as well. never had a prob with my WB. Dead Down Wind makes the similar product . gotta watch it with household prods, they can STINK or gum up after time as well as retaining small bits of debris. pay a little now for the above mentioned products or u may pay deerly in the field. shoot straight and good luck

Drop away rest. Bar on top accomplishes the same thing as the biscuit as far as keeping your arrow in place. Line the inside of the rest with mole skin or felt and you are done. Zero noise drawing and releasing, wet ,cold, rain, snow, sand storm etc. I have had mine for 4 seasons now and love it.

Man i've hunted to a point where there was an inch of accumulated snow on my broadhead and my whisker biskit has yet to freeze up on me. Maybe if it went right from a downpour to a freeze I can see it, but the WB would be the last of my worries at that point. Just can't see how it's a prob. I'd kinda be reluctant to put any kinda goo on it anyway.

It would seem to me a fluid, even a teflon based spray, would still result in more drag on my arrow than a dry biskit.
