I just installed a drop away by Vital Gear (Kazaway) on my bow and was amazed at the diference. I was shooting a Whisker Biskit and absolutely had no problems with it. In fact I shot pretty good groups with it and was comfortable with it. I simply wanted to try a drop away and I am glad I did.
Believe it or not, I gained 25 fps changing only the rest. 25fps is quite a jump in arrow velocity. Not only does the bow shoot much faster, I shoot much tighter groups more consistently and the bow is quieter.

I was expecting to gain a few feet /second but what a jump. I went from 285to 310.

Almost sounds like you were shooting aluminum shafts through a carbon Biscuit for it to make that much of a difference. I have a WB on my old bow, but I went with a drop away when I got my Guardian. I love the change. I don't think I would go back.

I had no idea I would gain that much speed. It was very obvious on the first shot that the bow was much faster. I am shooting Axis ST's and they had plenty of clearance in the biskit. I have to believe something was wrong because every now and then I would see an arrow fishtail with the WB but have not seen that with the new rest.

I know it is hard to believe, none of my buddies believed it until I chrono'd it again at an archery shop close to work. The shop owner was amazed as well.

I shot BH's (100gr mag. Slick Tricks) and they are shooting nearly 2" low as compared to where my FP's hit. It was not this way with the WB. What do I need to do to get the BH's and FP's to shoot at the same POI?

i had the same problem trying to get my broadheads to shoot and my field points was dead on so i decided to sight it in with the broadheads instead of fieldpoints and it worked but the only problem is you will ruin your broadheads but it will take alot of frustration out of it or it did for me. i shoot muzzy 125 grain so i just get replacement blades.

Raise your rest 1/32" at a time till your field point and broadhead groups have the same poi. You will have to resight after your done as raising the rest will raise both groups (but the broadheads more than the field tips).

I personally love dropaways. I switched over about two years ago and instantly noticed my groups shooting much tighter than before. I have a trophy ridge drop zone and it is a great rest. I don't see why anyone wouldn't use a dropaway other than a w/b keeps the arrow from slipping or moving around before you shoot.

Never have had any use for a dropaway, have shot them and honestly never seen any advantage. I'll keep on shooting the biscuit, never have to worry about the arrow falling off, coming off the rest during the draw cycle, string coming undone, arm failing to fall, you know the more moving parts you have the more opportunity for failure there is. I'll keep my biscuit, and dob that tenderloin in the gravey.:biggrin:
