Default Arrow Rest?

I currently have an APA Ultimate Twister Safari, but I have been having a lot of problems with it lately. It wobbles left and right about 1/8" and I have tightened everything down. That is a problem when your bow is pumping them out at 360+fps and has very little forgiveness. They are just not a good match. What do you guys recommend for me. The only requirement I have is that it has to be a drop away, but I do like a fully enclosed rest like the APA I have now. Right now I am leaning towards the Vapor Trail Limb Driver, but there are some things that I don't like about it such as the fact that the cord attaches to the limb. I do not know much about this, so my concern might me misplaced. Let me know what you think. By the way, I know that this is the wrong forrum, but there were like tree people on the other one.

I can hardly believe that you said that. Seriously. Have you seen my signature? I want you to PM me when you find someone who put a whiskerbisket on an 82nd. Come on. That is a match made in hell.

That is true, mr. sarcastic, the APA does suck. Not just for the 82nd, but any bow. If it failed that quickly, then I will never recommend it again. Still I will never use the Whiskerbisket again because I enjoy shooting out to 100 yards, which is great. No one can be accurate at that distance with a Whiskerbisket. I have seen the Spot Hogg Whammy bounce off the riser after it drops, which results in fletching clearance issues, so I do not like that one either. The Vapor Trail Limb Driver looks like it would be pretty nice, and many people have recommended it. Unfortunately, that means that a lot of people also have it unlike the APA. Nobody but me had it. It was cool, but not effective. I want to hear what you guys are using for drop aways. Let me know.

Which QAD rest do you have? I tried the QAD Ultra-Rest Pro Series HD, but it was too slow on the drop for the 82nd. Which Bowtech do you shoot?
