Question Which Arrow Rests are best

I have a Diamond Rock compound bow that I just purchased. I'm new to archery and will be doing primarily target shooting. What type of arrow rest is best for that. Fall-away, biscut, fixed rest? The bow has a biscuit rest but it seems to me that a rest like that would effect the arrows direction as it passed through it. Please give any experiences or thoughts.

I have used them all except the whisker biscuit. all of them are good when set up right. but I have been using a drop away for the last few years. mainly because they have the long prongs to keep the arrow from falling off. which can be a problem when it is windy. good luck

Can't go wrong with a limbdriver by Vaportrail or the trip wire by Octane both are the top of the line rests. I have both and have never had a problem with either one of them. Good luck

I like the NAP 3000. Infinitely adjustable, with a blade or prongs.

I shot the TT SS II and the AAE ProBlade since years.
But after I tried the LimbDriver just for testing on my target rig too,
I switched.
No more sorrows about nock rotation, no sorrows about
nock point hight.
Easy to set up and forget it.

Now, I have the LimbDriver on all of my bows!
