    Default 3d Arrow Rests...

    I have pretty much hung it up this 3d season, getting ready for the Kentucky opener in about a month. Next year I want to go from MBR to the open class, and although I have found a lot of information on sights, stabilizers, peeps, etc., I haven't found too much information on the most popular rests. What is the most common style of rests used by pros in the open class (Blade fixed, qad drop-away, etc.)?

    Lizard tounges are most popular. Alot of guys using the Down Force and limb driver as well.
    Be good or be good at it.

    I found something that I don't care for with the blade style...they can bend and cut you! I cut my thumb and bent the hell out of mine at the last 3-D shoot...don't ask me how...guess I tried to pick up my bow funny...won't do that again!

    I like to shoot a tighter twist helical than most would I think... Fall-aways were and still are a dream come true. They just don't seem to be popular among competitive archers. I know what the reply will be *shoot what feels good*. I want to feel like my equipment is as good as possible. When you see guys like reo and braden strokin at 70m it makes you think that you might be a lizard tongue man.

    Thumbs up Rests

    The most common rest for the open division is a lizzard toung @ .010 thickness. The Trophy Ridge target rest is a great choice. I still use a Trophy Ridge drop zone with great luck! Either rest will work well.
