    New Rest Recommendation

    I'm getting a new bow (the bowtech experience!)and would like to hear some rest recommendations. I currently shoot a fixed rest and have loved it but figure its time to transition to a drop away. I don't feel I need a top line rest so any recommendations?

    Thanks,

    I am jealous!!! I have been oogling that bow for a little bit...just not my year, maybe next.

    I personally am not a fan of more moving parts on a bow, and have extreme success/accuracy even out to 80-100 yards with my whisker biscuit rest.
    I hunt because......

    I'm a fan of the Whisker Biscuit too.

    I tell myself why try to fix what isn't broken every time I look at rests

    I have been shooting the rip cord red 2 of the last 3 years. In between those 3 years I shot a QAD drop away but went back to my ripcord red.

    Thanks,
    I have 2 friends that love their wisker biscuit rests. I am however a real fan of some of the drop away rests. I am shooting an older model that is no longer available. I shoot a model that holds my arrow in place unless my bow is turned completely upside down (almost as good as the wisker). I went to this rest on my X-force the first year the x-force was released as my pro shop said I wouldn't be able to get a fixed rest to tune since I was shooting over 300 FPS. In reality, I now know other rests would have worked but my arrow flight is awesome.

    Most of my hunting is from a tree stand. If I were doing more stalking and moving out west with a bow, I would probably switch to the wisker biscuit as the advantages of holding your arrow perfectly outweigh tiny improvements in flight IMO.

    wisker biscuits are just safe and simple, no room for error and they are an arm and a leg cheaper than some of those drop aways that really, honestly, dont give you any more accuracy. "true story"...

    If you are looking at dropaways take a look at the Qad Ultra Rest Hd. I have been using a for the past few years and wouldnt trade it for any other rest.

    Drop aways Are Nice..... But, I Highly Recommend to go to An Archery Shop that KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING....... The Drop Away needs to be Properly Set Up and Tuned..... To Work Correctly... And There are Some Drop Aways that No Matter what u Do.... They will not Tune with Certain Bows.... Your Body May own a Mathews with a Certain Drop Away that He Loves and It Works Great..... But, that same Drop Away may not tune properly on a Bow Tech..... I love my Drop Away But went Thru these issue.... Before It was Correct......
