Default What rest????

I have a WB that came on my bow when i got it. I think every archery place I go curse at me for having it on there. I got the WB for free so i think im gonna get another rest. What do you guys think? Fall away? Just some opinions.

I have one but haven't hunted yet with it. If you haven't already tried it you will find its a very handy and reliable rest. My nagging concern at this point is the noise it makes so I have not decided if I will use it to hunt with yet. Having said that I'm sure many will respond and say they love and use them successfuly for hunting. I am definitely not ready to give up on them yet myself.

I am also scared of shooting feathers through the WB because the tear they might have on them. Also afraid if it getting wet or freezing up. I was looking at the QAD fall aways. So many decisions...

Whisker Biscuit all the way!!,,so far i've been quite impressed with mine i have shot through it dozens and dozens of time with no wear to the biscuit or any fletchings, i put a very small bead of JB Weld on the end (front of fletching) just in case there was any tearing of my fletches going through any targets, and you know what i've done this for the past years and haven't really noticed any real changes in accuracy.

I'm not partial to the Whisker bisquit myself .I'll stick to the fall away for me ,I have the Muzzy Zero Effect on my bow and have used the Trophy Taker as well ,I'll never change from the fall away rest ,once they're setup accordingly they'll work flawlessly. Don't worry about breaking part's ,because these fall away's are biult like a tank.
