Default Should I get a new arrow rest

I am just starting using a compound bow for the first time and I am just wondering if I should get a better arrow rest than a whisker biscuit. If there is a better rest please pm me with the name and how much it sells. Please give me any information you know on arrow rest and I would really appreciate it. Thanks

Default Whisker Bisquit for hunting only

Is a fine rest. Many use them with confidence.

I myself have used the Trophy Taker fall aways for hunting and love this rest.

I use the Pronghorn drop away. Its awesome and very accurate. Simple to install and has very few screws to come loose. The screws that are on this rest are heavy duty. Made by hunters for hunters to survive the hardwoods. One other thing there no plastic on this rest, all steel.

the buicut is a good rest. It keeps the arrow on all the time. The two downsides to them are:
100% fletching contact
They warp vanes and rip feathers to pieces
Drop away rests are very accurate and some are super easy to install.

I second the Trophy Taker, I like the prong horn. Takes a little getting used to after the biscuit but you would love it.
