Default Gettin a new rest...

due to malfuction, my old quick tune micro has been removed. I am selecting a new rest tomorrow and would like some input. I have heard a lot of the WB (good and not so good), but what do you think of the quick tune 360 or a drop away? Looking for some guidence.

I shoot an 04 Bear TRX 29" draw @ 67lb
31" st epic 300 with blaser vanes
I shoot a release and 80% from a 15' stand

Any info would definately be appreciated

usually the only people saying something bad about WB are people who dont use one or people who dont set it up right (its not hard)ive used a WB for at least 6years never had a problem, no dropped arrows, no hang ups, no broken strings, nothing to get in the way of making my shots on deer.

Something is really going to have to happen for me to change my mind about my WB. I have shot one ever since they came out on the market and it is the best all around huntingrest I have ever used.

If your thinking about the WB.... Look at the Hostage too and you deceide. Less contact with arrow, no contact with you vanes.
I don't use either, but I have owned a WB and wouldn't recommend it to any one.

I currently have a WB and like it but i dont love it. The rest i have been currently eyeing up is the QAD Ultra Rest. If i buy a new bow im definately going with a drop away but the WB will allways be on my back up bow.

You won't be dissapointed in the performance aspect of the QAD for sure. It functions awesome, but if your bow is a Hoyt I would ask to put the rest on first before you buy it. Mine does not adjust very much because it hits the TEC riser. TheWB is a great hunting rest. You won't go wrong with it.
