    In my humble opinion, if you are looking for a rest that will shoot well and great for stalking, I would go with either a Ripcord, QAD, or you could look at the Trophy Ridge Revolution. All are great fall away rests, and all have full containment that can be cocked in place.

    Another vote for the whisker biscuit. I don't mind refletching in the off season

    The whisker biscuit is good and simple, but definately is hard on vanes. I always enjoyed its simplicity...but borrowed a drop away from my bro to "sample" and it is way more accurate and is simple too. I won't ever go back to the biscuit now bc of the accuracy difference.

    I've got a Trophy Ridge revolution on my Destroyer, and quite frankly, I love it. The arrow is held securely in place and it still is quiet. The equal best would be the QAD. I've got one if those as well. Had to send it away to get cleaned as it was sticking and wouldn't go all the way down. Great service though, no charge.

    As for the Ripcord, great containment, easy setup, no containment on slow let down. Most people think that its no biggy, but I could see it costing me an animal eventually.

    Limbdriver Pro-V. Easy setup, dead accurate. Even though it is said to be a containment style rest, the arrow is bouncing around in the "cage" when stalking. The arrow makes a lot of noise even with the felt stuck to the inside of the cage. Pass.

    The rest I can't comment on as I've never had one. Good luck.

    Sent from my "Galaxy".

    I've got a QAD Pro on my new bow (G5 Prime), but I am switching back to the Spott Hogg Whammy rest on my old bow. Once I got used to it I fell in love.

    Trophy Taker for me. I have used one on my last three bows and I'm sticking with them till I have a reason to switch.

    I'm currently trying my 4th rest in the last year - still undecided which I will have come fall.
    My experiences so far:
    2 prong (TM style)PROS: IMO very accurate and very tunable. CONS: only con is the No containment and arrow falling off during stalk.
    NAP Apache PROS: Rock Solid & Quiet. CONS: not what I consider full containment as arrow rolls all around in cage, did not tune to my liking
    QAD drop-a-way PROS: true full containment. CONS: Plastic launcher and small launcher arm not as rugged as other brands.
    Whisker Biscuit (currently trying) PROS: Very Simple, arrow does not move while stalking. CONS: slight noise on draw back, and mentally hard to overlook fact my vanes are dragging through the bristles each time - as I've spent most my archery life trying to avoid vane contact with rest???...but, so far it's had to not like the Whisker Biscuit - my last test for it will be long range accuracy at 60-70yds...if that checks out OK...Mmmm I'll have a decision to make.

    Sometimes I have to tell myself I'm trying to find the best rest for that one shot at an Elk 4 miles from the road after a long day of banging my bow through the moutains...and not necessarily the best rest for shooting X's in the backyard the other 364 days a year. The good news is that they all are great rests - it's all about what gives YOU the most confidence when you head out.

    Again - thanks for the replies - and any other opinions still appreciated!
