Talking Questions

I am about to upgrade my rest from a whisker biscuit and was looking for some input on what the best rest for my application would be. I shoot a Mission Rally set at 58# @ 28 1/2 inches. I only shoot 3d shoots . I feel a drop away would prbably help with accuracy? Ideas?

A dropaway rest will help your grooping if the center shot and all that good stuff is corect. Every dropaway rest i have personally have tried work no matter the brand or price pick one with the features you want.my personal favorite is QAD.

If your only shooting 3d and target archery, I would go with a blade rest. No other rest out there can compete with the simple workable design of spring steel for target archery.

There is a reason the blade rest dominates professional target archery.
