I have an Oneida eagle bow. I have this rest on it. Will shoot with a release. The arrows have the 3 inch quik spin vanes. How will they tune or will they be a problem.

Should be fine. Although in some cases the biscuit is touchy to tune(as in micro movements in the opposite direction that conventional wisdom tell you to move while tuning)

The biscuit will tear up those vanes. Just get some 2" Blazers. I have tried the quik spin vanes and as I said they do not hold up well. Shawn

Nothing wrong with a biscuit;like my Quad HDX on my primary bow but my back up has a biscuit.I used to shoot indoors;watched a guy shoot perfect 300 rounds with a biscuit for two years.The will do some wear on your vanes/feathers but it will take a lot of shooting. Put it this way;if I were to do a out of state hunt, my bow would have a biscuit.

Why does the state you hunt in determine the rest you use

Never could get consistent flight from a WB. Drop away rest for me

Wilddan.....I have a Trophy taker on my bow....but when going into the backcountry the spare is a Biscuit. It`s as reliable and simple as a rests gets.

Blazers & biscuits like apple pie and vanilla ice cream. I watched a guy try to shoot quick spins through his and it was quite entertaining.

I love my biscuit and have always been able to get great arrow flight out of them. One less thing to worry about...

The OP asked about quik spin vanes, not good through a biscuit! Shawn

To add to the state question, it's because a biscuit is reliable when you're 400 miles from your bow shop. A drop away breaks in the bush, you're SOL. Or you're going to be spending the day finding the nearest archery shop. Biscuit for me!

My longest kill with a bisquit is 63 yards. I dont tune anything. Tuning is for pianos

Love the biscuit. You can tune a piano but you cant tune a fish. Sorry

Joe Walsh! You can tune a piano hit you can't tuna fish. Great album. When you're a long way from a bow shop carry a mini bow shop with you.
