Default New rest for a new bow?

Ok Guys need a little of your imput here.

I am going to be setting up my new bow (Bow tech captain) And i was thinking about going to a dropaway rest? I will be using it mostly for hunting. What would you suggest?
QAD,RIPECORD, LIMBDRIVER,??

I have been using a W/B with good success and it will stay on my now back up bow 04-justice, Just wanting to try something different.

Any of those is probably good. I use a QAD LD and really like it.

I took the WB off my bow this past year and went to the Limbdriver and I must say it has been to best decision I have made. Really easy to set up and tune. And has perfect fletching clearance. Not trying to say anything bad about the QAD rest both my friends bought one this past year and we did side by side comparrison with the lipstick test(put lipstick on the vanes to see if they are rubbing anywhere) and even after serveral adjustments he still could not get complete clearance. Just my two cents

There is another option to think about, if you do like the concept of the W/B you can have this new rest that has the style of the Octane hostage but the brushes drop away so you have the same idea as the drop away.. In my thoughts the best of both worlds,. I believe it is called "Tri-Van Vanishing Rest".. Check it out...

I love my ripcord,its a great rest I've had no trouble with it, and I just moved it to my new bow and found that I would have to replace the cord since I cut and served it on my old bow I contacted ripcord to order a new cord and was sent a new cord new spring and new brass lock all for free can't ask for better customer service then that.
