Default Whisker Biscuit or Drop away rest?

I am looking at getting a new rest, which is better a whisker biscuit or a drop away, if a drop away is better, what should I get for a dropaway.

I have both a Whisker Biscuit and a rip cord fall away. I have to say for hunting I like the Whisker biscuit much better. Just because of the fact that it fully contains the arrow so theres no way that arrows falling off the rest.

I have used a whisker biscuit for the last 5 years, and my accuracy has been good. Prolly a 5" group at 30 yards. I finally switched to a drop-away last year. I got the Q.A.D Ultra Rest. Man It keeps the arrow from fallin out just like the whisker biscuit. Its less noisy then the whisker biscuit, and My accuracy has improved. I can keep about a 3" group at 30 yards, but at further distances like 40-50 yards my accuracy is far better now. I also gained 11 feet per second. I think You can't go wrong with a drop away.

I like the Muzzy Z-effect drop away and the arrow will NOT fall out. The only thing that I would suggest is to put some of the cloth tape on your riser because the arrow can make a small noise. The arrow will fall into the correctposition, no matter where it is when draw is initiated. The negative to the whisker biscuit is the additional contact to the arrow as the vanes pass through it.

I prefer the drop away rests and they make several that are contained like the whisker without the arrow contact..

I like my drop zone over the WB for the same reasons mondoman said...seems to be a little more accurate farther down range.

If you've been looking at the W.B. take a look at the hostage.. It's a million times better. I've made the W.B. mistake. With the hostage you have no vane contact and is still a contained arrow rest. There is no comparison.

Yes, I have seen that rest before. It grabbed my attention as well! I had forgot about it and unfortunately, already put money into a drop away. Nice choice to add to the pile though.

Lol! Really? a million times better? I tried this rest and it was to easy to bump the arrow between the bristles......no comparison in my opinion.
