    Contact w/ the cables would be my only possible suggestion... but that would rip it, not slice it. Somone playing a joke on the poor guy and superglue his whiskers together?

    If he is using a WB tell him to look at whiskers real close there is one section of them that are all black and the rest of them are brown.... The Whiskers that are black are the stiffest ones. He should position his arrows so that none of his vanes are going to go through the black whiskers at all. If they do they will shred the vanes every time.

    Its probably killing bowman not to post. He is probably going through withdrawl.

    Sooner or later, Bowman will fall off the wagon.

    This is cracking me up here after he posted no more bashing of the WB someone starts a thread like this.:laugh: :laugh: I believe Bowman truly knows the importance and great value of the Whisker Biscuit rest.

    To reply to the question I have no idea what would be causing the vane to be cut like you are describing. SORRY.
