Drop Zone. Simpler, you don't need to cover the rest in moleskin, and more dependable.

I went with the trophy taker. When I was in the bow shop I looked them over closely. If your arrow is way over against the riser when you draw the DZ it will not center the arrow. The TT centers it every time.

I like the Trophy Taker and I am currently using it with absolutely no complaints...I do not however have any experience with the DZ to give an opinion on it....

Iown and have tuned both.
For me the drop zone would work when the TT would not. I guess it drops faster after providing enough arrow guidence to send the arrow off correctly. So in a word- ittuneseasier.

The TT is quieter with my moles skin & weather stripping job.

I set up the TT yesterday on my Stalker and do believe it now quieter than my Patriot[8D]. Granted the arrows are arcing towards the target instead of blazing there.

They are both quality rest, but I think the TT is a little more durable. Those slots and springs on the dropzone look like a place for dirt and grime to get into and gum up.

Can't go wrong with either one IMHO, but your shooting a Patriot so I'd say DROPZONE for you. It would work on my Pat when the TT would not.
