    I don't think the apache is limb driven but not 100% sure on that and I don't know if that is a big deal to you or not. Personally, if you are going to get a new rest, I would do it right the first time.

    I had the Apache on my bow for about a week and sold it. It is a good rest. Its accurate, quiet, has pretty good containment, but its heavy and if you have a little bit of a hump to get over in your draw cycle before the valley, it will flick you arrow up in the air ever so slightly. After it does that, you have to wait a second for the arrow to go back to the center of the rest. Other than that its a pretty good option, but I ended up going with the QAD like DryFlyGuy. The biggest difference is the price. The Apache is about half the price of the QAD, but I liked being able to pull back and let down without the rest dropping so I decided to change. My advice is to get the best rest in your budget. I have never shot a limb driven rest, but I hear that is the hot ticket. Typically they are a little more expensive than the ones served into the cable from what I have seen, but you usually get what you pay for. Just keep doing research and get the best rest you can afford, but I would definitely recommend a drop away of some sort.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    In answer to your QUESTION, Yes helical will fly from a whisker biscuit. I'm shooting 3* helical out of my PSE X-force GX w/ whisker biscuit and it will shoot better than I can!

    What are the pro's to a limb driven rest that make it better than a cable activated rest?

    Easier tuning on the bow no problems twisting cables and worrying about your cord, easy installation, no timing concerns. They also say activates faster as well.

    For what its worth you can put whatever helical you want and it will still shoot fine through the Whisker Biscuit. If you plan on shooting a dropaway there are plenty of options that will work just fine. I have used the QAD, G5, TT's, Apache, Rip Cord, Hamskea just recently, I'm sure there is more but those are just off the top of my head. I find no matter what I have gone to I still always seem to fall back on the QAD HDX is the current model. These are really tough to beat but they are a cable driven. After spending the last few years with a cable driven rest in a few different brands I am back to a cable driven.

    Sorry the end of that I meant to say the last few years I spent quite a bit of time with limb driven rests and back to a cable driven

    This is my first post.....and my opinion.

    You will be fine with a 3 degree offset and a Whisker Biscuit. That's what I'm using with no issues what so ever.

    I shot drop away rests for many years and swore by them. Then one day at the range my arrows were hitting in the 3 ring....flying really goofy. Turns out my drop down rest had become rusted internally due to shooting in the rain.....and it wasn't dropping fast enough to clear my vanes.

    Many folks like drop down rests....all my buddies shoot them....but I will stick with the Whisker Biscuit. It's just one less thing I have to worry about going bad during a hunt. I shoot the same scores with either rest set up. My 2 cents worth.
