Default Need help.... arrow rest.

So I'm fairly new to archery. I currently have a whisker biscuit and I'm looking for more consistency. I have been looking at the vapor trail limb driver, Any thoughts? What's the best? Thanks for the help

QAD ultrarest is another good option.

The best is what you have confidence in

I've used the limb driver and liked it
I am now using a qad hdx and I like it too. The qad is nice being able to lock it up when you nock a arrow

Qad makes a great rest.

For more budget friendly.. i think trophy taker has a reasonable priced (sub 90) full containment dropaway if I am not mistaken.

Use the biscuit and hunting will be gravy!


Nothing wrong with it especially for a beginner. Consistency probably has more to do with your form and technique than is does the WB. That being said, if you are ready for something else then get a full containment drop away rest.

Not to discredit your shooting ability but I believe only a hnadful of people can see the difference between accuracy of a drop away and a WB. If you will be hunting I'd recommend the WB as it's nearly bombproof.

I feel that I'm pretty consistent with the WB I have just heard that when the arrow goes through the rest the arrow is being slowed down because the "whiskers" are touching the arrow all the way to the veins. So I thought a drop away would help with both accuracy and fps.

Whisker biscuit was what I used when I was new. It tore up my fletching and my accuracy was worse for it.

I'd use a reputable bow shop and go with a drop away. I've been using a trophy taker for about 10yrs with no problems.

Have a QAD on the Elite and Ripcords on the other two. I prefer the Ripcord because of where the cocking lever is located. On the QAD it is on the opposite side of the riser and on the Ripcord it is directly under the "V" that holds the arrow.

I left the WB due to the noise on draw with my aluminum arrows. Got busted twice in ten days on the draw when the deer heard the noise. Tried silicone on the shafts, making the hole in the WB a bit larger, and nothing would eliminate the slight, but noticeable noise on the draw.

1-3 fps drop is all that will occur, and that makes no difference at all at hunting ranges , if you have crappy shooting form a biscuit will show it, if you are not interested in actually getting better, a fall away is your friend, it is far more forgiving of form issues

I've had Ripcord, Vapor Trail, but my QAD HDX is by far the best that I have had.
