    Hey from a new TX member...

    It was my birthday this weekend, and damn if my girlfriend didn't get me a slightly upgraded bow!!! Drenalin to be exact.

    My carbon extreme is kind of long in the tooth and i'd been looking at a switchback or outback, but this kind of trumps it.

    I'm a hunter, not a 3d guy, but wanted to ask a rest question. I want a capture rest and guess i could give up a bit of speed, but one of my hunting buddies is shooting a whisker bisket and says it tears up/off his fletches? Anybody else? I read up on reviews on capture/fall away rests and none of them are really getting just great reviews. Any opinions appreciated. I was also looking at the mathews convertible HDII, it looks pretty cool, but i've shot about 4 different rests on my old bow and found that expensive wasn't necessarily better.

    I think i've got the rest of the rig figured out, but WOW!!! 100$ for mathews new arrow web quiver! That's kind of steep. I don't know if i can spring for that.

    Glad to have found the forum.

    Gotta shoot blazer vanes. I had that problem with 5" vanes. Get a whisker biscuit and you wont regret it. Just make sure you buy blazer vanes to put on your arrows. to 3dshoots

    I've been playing around with the Vapor Trail Limb Driver. I don't like to add anything to my cables if I don't have too. So far it's been great. I haven't used it in a hunting situation yet. Just ordered another one .

    A pro series QAD is probally the best full containment drop away on the market. I currently shoot a whisker on my hoyt, arrows tend to fly a tad nock high through a whisker biscuit, but they are dependable for hunting - no moving parts! Blazer vanes are the way to go with a WB, and I put a small drop of glue on the leading edge of the vane as others have stated. I have no problems with my whisker, but I plan on putting a QAD on my trykon or new bow next year.
