    I'm thinking of scrapping my whisker biscuit for a drop away arrow rest. Anyone have any suggestions? I would like one that is good but doesn't break the bank. Have any of you tried the Apache drop away rest? I would appreciate any advice since there seem to be tons to choose from. Thanks. In advance.

    Just put one on my bow and it seems like it's going to work out pretty good....no complaints to this point. :up:
     

  3. My favorites in order. Limbdriver, Trophy Taker Shakey Hunter and G5 Expert (at least that's what they used to call it).

    It really depends on how much you want to spend and what style. Probally the most popular are the full capture type the rip cord and ultra rest. If your looking for one that dosent attach to your cables I would recomend a limbdriver. Me personally I shoot a g5 no contact with the shelf, and I have no clearance issues. Also trophy ridge makes the dropzone rest that drops verticaly no shelf contact either.

    I'm running a QAD and I really like it, and for around $50 (I think thats what I payed) I think its hard to beat

    I'm using the Rip Cord Code Red as well and have no complaints. If I do get a new one I'm wanting one that doesn't let down the arrow shaft if I let down the bow string.

    Ripcord red zone or qad would be fine. If you want to keep your setup light weight shy away from the apache.

    Another vote for the limbdriver.Easy to set up and works very well
     
  18. have you put any thought into the limb activated arrow rest? On some bows it takes care of some timing issues. Plus they are EXTREMELY easy to set up. Its just a thought. If you are going with a cable activated arrow rest I still stick with the Rip Cord Code Red as NugeFan said I would :fit:

    While we're putting votes out there, I throw one in for the Trophy Ridge DropZone.
