That would be like comparing a Ford Pinto wagon (bizkit) to a Chevelle SS (any dropaway). Jeez someone sure knows how to fire ol Bowman up Did Bowhntnnotforlonghusier put you up to this??

But seriously I really dont think you can compare the two. they are just too different.

bizkit=bad.
Dropaway=good
I think I am going to put that last part in my signature.

I agree, I have used both and I liked the drop away better then the WB. The only style rest I use now is a launcher style rest.

At the begining of the new year the IBO sends out a magazine of the past years IBO world champions and some other good stuff. All but 1 of the champions that shoot a release use a drop away style rest. The majoraty of them use the Trophy Taker rest. If a drop away is set up wrong you could get some issues with them, the launcher style rest are slowly becoming a thing of the past. I realy can't remeber the last time I set up a prong rest on a new bow at the store.

By launcher, I am referring to the spring steel type rest like the Brite Site Pro Tuner and the TT Spring Steel etc. Trust me, those are not a thing of the past. The more moving parts it has, the greater the chance it will fail. I have seen failures with drop aways and I am not willing to take that chance.
