Hey Guys,

I wanted to get a feel for what kind of arrow rest you guys are using and if you like it. I do not like the drop away I have on my DXT and want to change it out.

Thanks,

I use a whisker biscuit. Only problem I have is when it gets cold enough, and a little moisture on it, the whiskers will freeze together and cause accuracy issues. Other than that it works great for me.

I have used a drop away rest from Quality Archery Design for the past two years. It has never failed to drop on the release and it keeps the arrow in place without the worry of having to have the bow at an upright angle. I know you said you have a drop down rest but I am guessing it is not a QAD. Give one a try.

I've been using a Quick Tune for a few years - its simple , the arrow sits in the cradle well. No complaints.

Another whisker biscuit user here. For hunting they are hard to beat and the freezing problem can be dealt with by spraying some "No Snow" onto the bristles.

octane's version of the whisker biscuit... its awesome. you dont have to worry about moisture and there is VERY LITTLE friction and resistance on the arrow or fletching. Hignly reccomended.

Thanks Guys for the posts.

I have been looking at the QAD HDX model drop away. It has some good writeups on it and I think will keep the arrow secure from moving around.

I've been using the Whisker Biscuit since they came out. Never had a problem. Great product and the freezing can be dealt with as stated above.

Take a look at vital gears kaz away bow rest. It is a drop away that is full capture at rest.

Anybody using the wisker biscuit have problems with the wiskers wearing out? A friend of mine had big uses with them wearing out and effecting arrow flight. He shot a lot but it always kept me from using 1. Its been a couple years maybe they are improved now.

I havent used a whisker biscuit but I have heard problems of them affectiing the fletching on your arrows unless you use the blazer vanes.

I do not even like the Octane version of the whisker bicuit. I tcam wear unevenly and after shooting for awhile your arrows will wag. I put on the Trophy Taker drop away and have had good luck with it for 2 seasons.

Had WB and didn't like fletching tearing off...then found the wisker "melt" from the fletching zipping too fast as I found the arrows going all over the target. I had to change to drop away QAD and happy with it all around. Something must have happened to it and cause it to fail.
I like the WB as it did do Robin Hood for me a few times.....

I am also looking at the QAD Ultra Rest HDX. Has anyone tried this new rest for 2011? How much different is it from the HD model?
