Default Opinion on rests.

Hey there, I am new to these forums and I was just wonder which rest you guys prefer?

I have used a wiskerbiscut since I started shooting my bow. I want to upgrad to a drop away.. Should I go staright to the NAP Apache?

Just looking for some opinions.
Thanks.

If you can't afford the HDX (it's rather salty in price but well worth it) QAD has a good selection in drop away's that are a bit cheaper. Not as many bells and whistles as the HDX but still VERY functional and quality rests. The LD-Pro series comes to mind, about 40 bucks cheaper than the HDX. http://www.lancasterarchery.com/qad-...est-black.html

Another option is the Ultra-Hunter at 55 bucks here http://www.lancasterarchery.com/qad-...rrow-rest.html

Another good quality rest is the Rip Cord http://www.lancasterarchery.com/ripc...est-black.html

If you go with a QAD ultra rest, go with the HDX. It's more expensive, but people have had issues with the cheap "Hunter" model. It wouldn't be much of an upgrade from your whisker biscuit.

Your first choice is a good one. The NAP Apache is easy to set up, quiet and built like a tank. After I bought and installed my first one and began shooting with it, I put them on all my other bows. I like the fact that you do not need any tools to make adjustments. And my latest, the micro, allows for even easier fine tuning. The others gave their opinions and all are good rests. But this is mine and the Apache won't break your wallet.

I'm going in the opposite direction for my new bow. Will be using a Wisker Biscut this time around. The Drop away I currently use makes a metal tinging sound at release. I want it simpler/quieter this time around.

i guess... but the advantage of a drop away is enough that i'd probably just change to a different brand instead of downgrading.
just my opinion though
