Do a search on this web sight for further info...I think people have answered that question allot lately. I asked it a few weeks ago. It was norrowed down to the QAD Ultra Pro Rest and the Ripcord Rest. I went with the QAD and love it. Check out their web sight for further information. Do a google search for (QAD quality archery design).

I went with the NAP Quicktune 2000 and really like it. I was looking for a fall way and it was between that one and the Trophy Taker Shakey hunter and I went with the NAP since it was quieter out of the box and didn't need the extra moleskin. I friend of mine shoots a bowdoodle and really likes it too. I am happy with my NAP though and would recommend it.

A Whisker Biskit is a great hunting bow rest. They are very simple, lightweight and very proven. Loads quickly and arrow containment is nice.

The drop[-away rest I'd reccomend is the Trophy Taker and Trophy Taker Shakey Hunter. Once again, very simple, lightweight and very proven.

GoodLuck!

Last year I asked the same question, and a lot of responses went for the Whisker Biscuit. I was going to purchase it, but jumped on the lastest crazy, and bought a drop-away rest. I purchased the NAP Quicktune 4000. I have only had it for one season, but it has preformed great. Nothing bad about it, but one minor detail. When i pulled back on the buck I shot this year, the arrow made some noise while contacting the rest. Its fixable with some wax, but otherwise, I would say the Quicktune 4000.
