Default to bodoodle or drop away

I am looking for a new rest this hunting season and have heard some good things about bodoodle, but now not sure with all the talk about drop away rests. How does bodoodle work with off set vanes or helical? Does anyone have any experience with either? give me some pros and cons? THANKS

ASSuming you mean a Zapper, I shoot a Zapper 400hp and my arrows have a 2 degree offset with no problems, I cant see using a helical fletch with the zapper though. And my 2 cents, for a hunting rest the zapper is hard to beat.

Used a bodoodle last year. Not a bad rest. This year Muzzy Zero Effect. No comparison.

There are a lot of good rest out there. There is certainly not anything wrong with the Bodoodle line. They are great, time tested rests. I personally really like some drop aways for hunting though. The Muzzy Zero Effect and the NAP Quicktune dropaways are, in my opinion two of the best hunting drop aways going. They both have an excellent containment system before and during the draw and are extremely accurate.

ITs all in what you want though.

Hey Szap. Bodoodle makes a dropaway rest now, although I have no experience with it. Its called the Game Dropper.

Yep, and they also make some pretty darned nice " conventional rests" , too! I use both the Bodoodle Pro 500 and Pro lite, and can run a full helical out of them with no problem. Love em. Many animals taken with them out of various bows.

Like I' ve said many times--doesn' t matter what kind of rest it is, it still has to be tuned regardless, no easy way out here.. I like to keep things simple and rugged with no lanyards, tubes, magnets, extra moving parts, etc. when I' m hunting, especially on a fly-in hunt. Therefore I shoot what I feel will be the most durable and what I have the ultimate confidence in. Heck, I know lots of guys going even simpler and using whisker biscuits and IMHO, they aren' t all that bad for hunting applications, either! They' re so simple it' s stupid....but they are efficient.

Dropaways work, but the bottom line is so does everything else. Lots of hype has been written in recent months about them, but I' m here to tell you there certainly isn' t anything " magical" about them, they are just another type of rest .

You' ll have to make your own decision on this one, everyone will offer opinions, but only you can judge what you yourself will like.. Good shooting, Pinwheel 12
