If you are on a budget and need something simple to get the job done than the Tabiger Arrow Rest is a great option. It is simple, barebones, and in the style of the popular Whisker Biscuit. The quality is certainly not of the highest caliber, but for light use and practicing at the range it is more than sufficient. A lengthily trip through dense woods may prove strenuous for the rest if not careful.
Tabiger Arrow Rest Details
What you get is a completely captured and secured arrow when loaded. The Biscuit style enclosure has two rubber boots that result in quiet arrow knocking and prevent loud metal on metal contact. The mounting arm has graduated marks for windage and elevation adjustments. However, the Tabiger Arrow Rest does not have vertical adjustments. The entire rest is made of composite material, which is less durable and lasting than aluminum or stainless steel varieties. At the price point, this is expected and merely a side effect of “getting what you pay for.” Despite the cheaper build quality, this rest is well received and highly regarded among archers who have purchased it.
While easy to install, beware that it is possible to overtighten the rest and that this can cause irreparable damage. The biscuit bristles are made of durable material that shouldn’t damage fletchings. However, they tend to fray and splay after putting 100 or so arrows through it. This may not immediately affect accuracy, but could become a concern in the future.

All in all, this Tabiger Arrow Rest is a great choice for a fixed Whisker Biscuit style rest that fits nicely within a budget. It is perfect for beginners who need help holding the arrow in place but aren’t ready to shell out for a more expensive rest.
