I use a Ripcord rest on my Maxxis and love it. Easy to set up and works great.

I use the Trophy Ridge Drop Shot and really enjoy it as well. It also is quite easy to set up and is very quite. It is pricey but to me well worth it..

I've used the QAD rest for last few yrs now on different bows had. I really like this rest. Once get it setup, works flawless. Never had a problem with it. I've used it for both hunting, and 3d shoots.

I've been pleased with my QAD Ultra Rest and the Limbdriver, and some buddies like their Trophy Takers.

One of the better ideas around in bowhunting, Trophy takers, NAP, there are a few out there now. They all work. Twin forks are better for keeping the arrow on when moving around, whether the twin fork or the straight flat is better for fletch clearance is pretty much a moot point, if you get fletch contact, it can be tuned out very easily,or you can go to a lower profile fletch. I've shot 2 to 5" fletch on 3-39's to 2413's, haven't had any problems with that until I went to a huge 5" fletch installed helical on a 2413, had to turn it, then reset the insert for the broadhead alignment. No big deal.

I have the QAD Ultra Rest on my Drenalin, and I love it. Wouldn't have anything else but thats just IMO.

Your best bet would have to be the G5 Expert 1 drop away
I hope this helps
