I am only 15 years old but my dad owns a archery shop and we sale more Trophy Takers than anything. That is what me, my dad, and my brother shoots. They are relyable and they WILL NOT cost you an arm and a leg. Thanks
I hopedI helped you.

How can this be? Blazers are supposed to work well with the biscuits.

I've heard of some that don't fit a Hoyt so that may narrow things down a bit. I have a GKF Infinity drop. It is the infinity rest made into a drop and can be used as a springy rest if so desired and comes with 4 different launchers. Other than a design flaw it is built like a tank, and very micro adjustable. The problem is the spring and the tolerances of it with it's housing, it rattles on the shot giving noise and vibration. I fixed it by making a shim out of a dura vane. Other than that I don't think there is a better one. Don't be fooled into believing the service is 100% satisfaction from GKF. It will cost you more if there is a problem. I have experienced the real deal and can say from experience that GKF doesn't measure up. Persistence will get you about 80%.The fact that it's two rests in one is a real plus. Mine cost around $130.

I have had excellent results with the New Archery Products Quick Tune 2000 drop aways on my Hoyt VTec and Hoyt MagnaTec. Seems to be simple and rugged. Doesn't hurt that it's not very expensive either.

sorry i meant quick spin speed hunters. they are just like the 2 inch blazers but they are the quick spins. but they were getting trashed so i just got a trophy taker today and love it and get this. i went from shooting 268 to 282 fps by changing from the biscuit to the trophy taker. i think the biscuit slows down the quick spins alot more then regular vanes though since they have the little lip in them.

I would agree with mac87toy. the vilay bow gear kaz a way
is an exellent rest. One great thing about it, it hold the arrow in place
so you dont need to keep your finger on the arrow itself.
