Default Drop away rest

I have used Whisker Biscuit rests for a long time and want to try a drop away rest on my new bow. Other than having a lock down feature, what else should I consider?

I had a 360 quick tune rest and a piece broke. So I went out and bought the cheapest one I could find ASAP. This tru glo rest has served me well and it's probably the best I've ever owned. I it does it's job. Simple as that. The only complaint I've had about it is that the latch that holds onto the bow string broke. But I put my bow in a press to loosen the string and just tied it to that. My bow can shoot the same arrow with this rest if I do my part.

Ps I've heard good things about the ripcord.

I like using Trophy Ridge and the new Evolution 2 looks pretty decent for a containment drop away.. Mine is an older one the Drop Shot which has worked great from except no containment..

Ripcord or QAD HDX are both very popular drop aways. I'm a big fan of the trophy taker rests as well.

I had the shop install a QAD HDX. It seemed to be top of the line rest. It is shooting time!

good choice. QAD HDX is the best in the biz.. I have had an HDX on my Creed, Chill, ZXT, and my Bowtech Experience.

I use QAD contained drop away with mole skin on the containment bar and the arrow contact point "V". It has served me well for accuracy, containment, and durability. I have owned 2 QAD rest and the first one malfunctioned during a archery league weekly shoot. I put around 500 arrows through that first QAD rest for two years every week, adding up to about 16,000 shots before it broke. I, without a second thought, went and bought my current QAD that is tool less micro adjustment. I cant say enough good things about QAD. Great product!
