Default Best Fall Away Rest For 2" Blazer Vanes

I am trying to convert from the hostage arrow rest to a fall away or drop away style rest. I use 2" Blazer vanes and I am hoping someone can give me a little direction on what the best rest would be for my particular vanes.

If I tell you this is the best it is! Trophy Ridge drop aways they all work about the same (Perfect). Run about one hundred... All I shoot are 2" blazers...

You can pick up an Ultra Rest for about 50 dollars and they are the best...

I have to orient the cock vane differently when switching between Carbon Force and a/c/c's (3-71's) due to clearance issues with my allegiance cables.

I'm switching to 4" vanes for 3D.....and 4 or 5" feathers for hunting, next year. The Blazers are durable enough.....but I'm not sure I'm getting the advantage they offer out of them at the distances I shoot.

I'd still use the QAD I'm using now. No vane issues.....no matter which vanes I'm using (with the rest).

My point was....I had issues with the BLAZERS v. other equipment.

I wouldn't give you a nickle for a drop zone, same for a MZE.

IMHO the best drop awayI have used and/ or testedis the Trophy taker Xtreme FC.I also like the Ripcord quite a bit. Both are built like a tank.

bigbulls, you're one of the guys that when you start talking about equipment, I listen. I'm curious about this one though. I've had a DZ for.....4 years now I think and I absolutely love it. Why do you not like it?
