Default Rest advise

OK I have been using a Schaffer drop away on my bows for quite a while now. On my Guardian it functions well, but on my 101 if I don't draw super smooth the arrow wants to flip up and off the rest. I really like the design of the Schaffer's, but I want to try something else.

I have been waiting patiently for the Hostage pro's to come out and now that they are here I can't decide if I want to try it or go with the limb driver that I don't like the extra string dangling in front of my eyes at full draw. I know alot of guys are using them, but I can't get passed the string thing. Another option would be going back to the ripcord rest.

Any other suggestions or advise would be appreciated.

The Ripcord is phenominal. All the benefits of a full containment and drop away all in one.

I have the Trophy Ridge drop away on mine and have been really pleased with it, however I have never tried any other drop away's. Then again it works well so I guess there is no need to try anything else yet.....Good Luck

What suprises me is Ultra Rest is never an option but is one of the best rests made...
