Right now I use a very basic shoot through arrow rest. I was thinking about changing to a containment style. The only real reason for this in my mind is to inhibit all the noise I make in the tree stand, It seemed whenever I moved my arrow was knocking around all over the place.
I have always liked the idea of the bodoodle rest, and possibly the whisker biscuit. The whisker biscuit always seems a bit weird to me though with all of that material your fletching has to get through.
WhenI start thinking about this I always think about 3D shooting. I love to go out and do that, and I want a rest that will keep me happy in both settings, hunting and point shooting.
Those two are the only two I have really thought about, maybe there are some better ones out there.
The Bodoodle is a great rest....I am actually going to go to one on my 3D bow as well. It is just so simple and easy to tune Plus the Blaine is a great guy to deal with and will always shoot you straight!
I just read about that QAD. It looks nice but it doesn't look like it would hold your arrow tight like the bodoodle zapper or the WB. I was also looking at that Octane hostage. never heard of it either.
I have never thought much about the dropaway rests, they always seemed like a huge effort to setup. I am not totally against that though...
i switched from a wb to a qad ultra rest. the wb isnt as quiet as you think it would be and you have to be careful how you place your arrow in it or it can ruin fletches. you also have to go with a shorter fletching or it creates havoc with the whiskers. just my personal opinion.
mine would get loud when the weather got bad or if anything at all (ice dirt whatever) was on the shaft. dont get me wrong its a good rest and does the job its supposed to do i just feel the qad is a better rest. i was totally sold on the wb until about the third time i replaced the whiskers.
