    Default It really depends on what you are shooting.

    I would recommend a few,
    I use a trophy taker dropaway,for 3d and hunting.
    Someguys do not draw back a bow every other day and would not feel comfortable with a rest with a small head or shelf on it for hunting.
    I know that arrows you use can even determine what rest is best for the bow.
    Tell us what your intentions are?3d,spots,feild,hunting,just two of them?and the arrows you are shooting and maybe I could give you a better idea of what rest I think might work for you.

    Default Thanks

    I shoot my hunting set up for all shoots that I enter. I shoot Gold tip 28" 55/'75 carbon arrows with 100 grain field tips. for Broadheads I shoot G5 Montech. I am not sure if pull wieght would help but I pull 70 pounds. The reason I am switching rest is I am switching fletchings to the quickspin fletchings and the veins hit the rest.

    Bert, you can rotate the nock to adjust the arrow so that the vanes do not strike the rest in most instances.

    What rest are you using now?
    Take a kid with you. Show them the Great Outdoors. Pass it on.
